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

If you are committed to making the third stage of your life the most rewarding, purposeful and  joyful time of your life 

I can help you with caring, skilled attention to what matters most to you to support you to achieve your most fulfilling retirement and beyond goals.


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

I help people in the third stage of life, often in some stage of the retirement transition, create the joyful, meaningful, fulfilling life they want, have worked so hard for and richly deserve.

I have an MA, am a Registered Clinical Counsellor, a Certified Retirement Options Coach and a Certified Virtual 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 and third stage of life 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 your future.
