My name is Marie, I am French, I lived in sunny Provence until I was 21 years old.


Despite the beauty of the south of France, in 2003 I felt the need to escape, to discover something new.


I decided to go to England, however my level of English was not strong enough to give me the confidence I needed to go by myself, so I chose to use the services of a placement agency.


Thanks to their help, my stay in the UK went really well and I found this first experience abroad extremely fulfilling - it actually changed my life.

I realised at that time that helping people go abroad and supporting them in living this amazing experience was a dream I wanted to focus my time and energy on. After a few years of work and study my dream finally came alive - Breakaway was formed.

I understand the project you would like to undertake; travelling abroad on your own in a country you don’t know may seem daunting and challenging. 

Assistance, support and safety is what you need to build the confidence to make your project happen, and this is what my team and I are here for.


Many people have already entrusted us in helping them with such projects and I’m very pleased to say that their stay was a success.


I am committed in assisting you in the same way and will ensure your experience abroad is as fulfilling as mine was.
