RELAX! Every family is different
Hello - my name is Rosalind. I am a trained and certified family coach. Coaching is not therapy – it is a practical, solution focused intervention in which you work with your coach in a specific area that you want to change; A big difference from therapy: the 'patient' vs 'healer' dynamic is absent.
I have a special interest in expat families: families who move frequently, who experience grief and loss and feelings of loss of control, families in transition due to the birth of a sibling or a move to a different country, and families composed of multiple nationalities, cultures and backgrounds.
I have lived and traveled in many continents with my own multi-cultural family. I have over 25 years' of experience working with families as an educator, animating theatre music and art projects with parents and children, in many different cultural settings.
I have graduate studies in psychology, focusing on identity construction and feelings of belonging and a master’s degree in Communications. I am non-judgmental but curious and supportive and intent on helping you find fulfillment on your unique family journey. If you need referal to a psychiatrist or other therapist, I can help you find the best help for you.
The happyfamilies certification has given me a range of additional essential skills that are proven to help parents and family members find meaning, connection and confidence, whatever the circumstances.
I work in French and English (my mother tongue) with family members of all ages – we were all children at one time – parents, in-laws, grand-parents and blended families, in Greater Geneva.
I am the founder of FamilyMattersCoaching.com ands my new site, expatparent-coach.ch where I keep a regularly updated blog about all aspects of family life.

I have a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old. I used to dread coming home and I felt guilty and annoyed with myself and my children. Rosalind helped me learn to play with my children. We enjoy each other's company more and I feel happier and closer to them. CE 53
I was having trouble talking to my teenager. I have recently separated from my wife and I felt he blames me. Rosalind's coaching gave me the support I needed to improve communications . He is now doing better at school and I feel less anxious and guilty. MA 57
Rosalind is a professional whom I I admire and respect. I felt heard, supported and understood. She gave me additional tools and different thought processes for stressful times when for me it all went out of the window! HG 40
