Coach of the Month – Olivia Ohlen

Name: Olivia Ohlen

Title: Coach, Psychotherapist

Business Name: The Positive Expat

Niche/Specialties: Expats, Executives, NGOs

Expat Experience: I was born and raised in New Caledonia, I have set up homes and developed my career in Australia, USA,  Malaysia, Singapore, France, Madagascar, Canada and today Panama.

Languages Spoken: I am fluent in French and English and currently immersing in Spanish. I have studied Japanese and Bahasa Malaysia.

Life Experience: As a lifelong expat and mother, my life has had many twists and turns, peaks and troughs, blessings and tragedies. Because of my extensive travel and global exposure, I can view my life as no more special or extra-ordinary than any other woman on this planet facing her daily reality; in fact I feel quite humble in comparison to some of the lives I have witnessed.

Accomplishments: My two children are my proudest accomplishments as well as  maintaining a loving, honest, and authentic relationship with my husband. My career is a vocation and a calling so I started very young with diplomas in Massage therapy and Yoga teaching,  then a Bachelors and Honours degree in Psychology and finally a Certificate in Coaching. I have owned Health care businesses, private practices, and the last few years I have worked as a HR consultant for mining companies around the world. Volunteering in local NGO’s gives me great satisfaction as well and I also view that work as a great accomplishment in my life.

What I Love About Working in This Niche: I love meeting people from all walks of life, cultures and religions, and finding the commonalities in the human experience.

Coaching Style: Positive Psychology is my biggest influence.

Favorite Coaching Tool: Identifying strengths, and goal setting.

Why Clients Choose Me As Their Coach: My empathy, compassion, skill set and my global experience.

A Tip for My Niche: Identify your strengths then organize your life to accentuate them and everyday think of at least one thing you are grateful for.
