Mission

The mission of FIGT NL is to:

  • bring together representatives of the corporate, diplomatic, academic, religious and military sectors present in the Netherlands to share their cross-cultural coping strategies;
  • encourage the exchange of information between expatriates and professionals involved with global transitions;
  • continue the work of FIGT beyond its annual conference by meeting locally to support and educate professionals who work to improve the lives of families in global transition.

If you would like to learn more about FIGT NL activities or get invited to its events, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at netherlands@figt.org

Leadership

Kate Berger is a Child and Adolescent Psychologist, MSc, with a private practice, The Expat Kids Club, who incorporates various therapeutic methods (including cognitive-behavioral therapy and mindfulness-based practices), to support expatriate children - and their families - living in non-native environments. There are many aspects of Kate’s work that fascinate her - particularly the concept of identity-formation for expat kids, and how this process is influenced by changing contexts due to relocation, etc. You can reach Kate via email: expatkidsclub@gmail.com 


The FIGT NL is pleased to receive development support and insight from Vivian Chiona. Vivian is the founder of Expat Nest (www.expatnest.com) which promotes the emotional well-being of expats, by offering online counselling services. Vivian is a psychologist with Masters degrees in both Child & Adolescent Psychology and Health Psychology. A multilingual bicultural and expat with family all over the world, Vivian herself feels most at home in the international community and is inspired by its diversity. You can reach Vivian via info@expatnest.com
