A Life Coaching Mentor for Foreign Students provides personalised guidance and support to students studying abroad. Through tailored coaching sessions, we help students overcome challenges, build confidence, and thrive in their international education journey. With a holistic approach and evidence-based techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), we assist students in areas like anxiety management, self-esteem building, and establishing healthy boundaries. Our goal is to empower students to make informed decisions and create a fulfilling and successful experience while studying abroad.
I’m Annie Fontaine, dedicated to empowering young adults in their 20s. Through my extensive experience, I’ve realised the crucial role I play in their personal growth. Many young adults in this age group struggle with confidence, self-worth, and even addiction issues. That’s why I am committed to providing mentorship and life coaching sessions that will help them overcome these challenges and thrive.
Within my mentorship program, I offer a supportive and safe space for foreign students to freely express their thoughts and concerns. My sessions are designed to:
By engaging with a trusted mentor outside their immediate family, students can find solace and be heard without judgment. This connection can alleviate stress, anxiety, and the pressures that often lead to regrettable decisions.
During our sessions, I utilise evidence-based techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a highly researched psychotherapy approach known for its effectiveness. Additionally, I incorporate open discussions, recommend insightful literature, and provide access to enriching podcasts. This holistic approach ensures comprehensive personal growth and development.
I am particularly passionate about mentoring young adults before they reach their 30s and 40s. It is during this pivotal time that equipping them with the necessary life skills becomes crucial. My expertise lies in addressing issues such as anxiety, low self-esteem, limiting beliefs, and fostering confidence.
Each coaching session is uniquely tailored to the individual needs of the student. I offer both 50-minute and 80-minute sessions, depending on availability and preference. If students require extra time for discussions before diving into action-oriented worksheets, I accommodate those needs as well. Typically, I recommend a commitment of 3 to 6 months for optimal progress. However, I am flexible and open to extending regular sessions beyond this period, if necessary.
All coaching sessions take place via Zoom, a reliable online platform that simplifies communication. With this platform, all our collaborative work is stored securely in one place, ensuring easy access and organisation. Additionally, it provides a journal feature for recording thoughts, a metrics system to set personalised affirmations as reminders, and a daily mood log. Clients are also welcome to reach out to me between sessions, offering ongoing support within reasonable limits.

A life coaching mentor for foreign students plays a crucial role in providing guidance, support, and mentorship to help them navigate the challenges of studying abroad. The mentor offers personalised coaching sessions and acts as a trusted advisor to help students overcome obstacles, develop confidence, and achieve personal and academic success.
Life coaching can benefit foreign students by providing them with valuable support and tools to navigate their study abroad experience. It helps them develop self-awareness, build resilience, manage stress, improve interpersonal relationships, set and achieve goals, and enhance overall well-being. Life coaching equips students with practical skills and strategies to thrive in a foreign environment.
The mentorship program is tailored to address the unique needs of foreign students. It focuses on challenges such as cultural adjustment, homesickness, language barriers, academic pressure, and building a support network. The mentor understands the specific experiences and struggles faced by foreign students and provides guidance and strategies to help them overcome these challenges effectively.
The coaching sessions can address various topics and challenges including but not limited to academic success, time management, goal setting, cultural adaptation, homesickness, building self-confidence, developing effective communication skills, managing stress and anxiety, maintaining work-life balance, and exploring personal values and identity.
The duration of the mentorship program can vary depending on the needs and goals of the student. Typically, the program lasts for 3 to 6 months, providing ample time for meaningful progress and transformation. However, the program can be extended if necessary to ensure continued support and growth.
Coaching sessions are typically conducted online using video conferencing platforms such as Zoom. This allows for convenient and flexible scheduling, overcoming geographical constraints. Each session is structured around the specific needs of the student, focusing on active listening, reflection, goal setting, action planning, and providing guidance and support.
Yes, coaching sessions can be conducted in multiple languages based on the language preferences and needs of the student. As a life coaching mentor, I strive to create a comfortable and inclusive environment where students can express themselves in their preferred language to maximise the effectiveness of the coaching process.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based approach used in the mentorship program to help students identify and modify unhelpful thought patterns and behaviors. By incorporating CBT techniques, students can develop healthier coping mechanisms, challenge negative beliefs, and cultivate more positive and adaptive thinking patterns.
The coaching sessions can be conducted on an individual basis to provide personalised attention and focus on the unique needs of each student. However, if there is a demand for group coaching among foreign students, group sessions can also be arranged to foster peer support, shared experiences, and collaborative learning.
To get started with the life coaching mentorship program, you can reach out to me through the provided contact information. We will schedule an initial consultation to discuss the specific needs, goals, and expectations for your foreign student. From there, we can design a customised mentorship program to support their growth and success during their study abroad journey.
