Are you retired or thinking about retiring?

Do you ask yourself “Who will I be after I retire?  How can I replace the satisfaction and engagement I receive through my work?”

I can help you design a clear plan to create a vital, purposeful and joyful next stage of your life.

Hi there! I’m delighted you’ve stopped by.

I’m Susan Farling.

Over the past thirty years I’ve helped women and men successfully navigate many challenging life transitions.

I have an MA, am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and a Certified Retirement Options Coach.

Retirement offers a potentially deeply rewarding third stage of life.

It can be a fulfilling time of peace, playfulness, connection, contribution and enjoyment.

Without adequate planning however, retirement can have downsides.

A slide into a “why bother” mindset can become depression.

Boredom can result in over use of  alcohol and other potentially dulling distractions.

Mistaken assumptions and conflict in relationships can result in resentment, unhappiness and divorce.

My interest and passion  is to support you to use your retirement transition as a time to connect with what enlivens you and matters deeply to you.

You can create a vital, purposeful, joyful life on that foundation and confidently meet the delights and challenges of the next stage of your life.

I highly recommend her.”                                                                                     – retired professional woman in her sixties
