Think about hiring a midlife transition coach? That might be just what you’re looking for if you’re thinking about what it would be like to:
- Be passionate about the work you’re doing;
- Know that you won’t have regrets about what you didn’t do;
- Wake up actually excited about what you’re about to accomplish;
- Be clear if the job you have is the one you want to keep;
- Be comfortable with your changing parenting role of raising older children (young adults); and
- Be totally cool with midlife and aging
Is this you? Or do you want it to be you?
I remember meeting a really passionate person, super happy and excited about her job. She owned her own needlepoint shop and as you can imagine, was absolutely committed to and excited about “all things needlepoint.” Her business wasn’t just selling beautiful kits though; there was also a big focus on teaching and sharing knowledge. I loved that. There was such a positive energy in that store. And…she was the one who first pointed out that I needed reading glasses, lol. What must she have been thinking to support her ability to actually follow her dream?
Take a look at these thoughts. Do these sound more familiar to you?
- I really feel like I’m wasting time at work;
- I don’t feel challenged anymore;
- I want to do more with my life;
- I’m so bored;
- My kids need me less now that they’re older – what do I do now?
- I would love to do something else but it scares me;
- I love hearing rumors of “early retirement packages” at work…but I don’t know what I would do;
- What’s going on with me? I’m just not content any more;
- My pension is only a few years off now and that makes me feel stuck; and
- Is this really all there is?
The thoughts that are rumbling around in your head are actually keeping you from the life that you want.
Navigating your midlife transition with ease is possible! The good news is that you can choose what you think.
News flash: You have control over your thinking.
As a life coach, I help you take a close look at your thinking and how it’s affecting your life. New thoughts will lead directly to different feelings, actions and results. My goal is to help you gain new perspectives and be clear about the life you really, really want.
Sometimes you just know something is “off” but don’t really know what it is. Some people call this a “midlife crisis.” With life coaching, you will come to understand why you are stuck and practice a different kind of thinking so that you can unstick yourself.
How does it work?
Well, it’s really about giving yourself the time to do a deep dive into your head. So many of us aren’t connected to our thinking at all. We are just in chaotic, busy auto-pilot land.
It’s my job help guide you. I do that with a sense of humour, with kindness, and with a keen ability to listen and ask great questions. You might squirm a bit as we are getting to what’s really going on, but it’s sooooo worth it to understand yourself at a much deeper level.
Together, we can find a way for you to create a life and career that is more what you want rather that what “happened to you”. But the big question is…are you ready to start digging around in your mind? Because that’s really what life coaching is all about. I help you get a perspective on your life and on what’s going on in your head so you can really move forward with your dreams, as corny as that sounds.
It’s not therapy…it’s not about treating a mental health problem or disease. We won’t be going into your past and all of the things that happened in your childhood.
I also work on the phone; it’s so easy to connect this way, there’s no travel or parking and even better, you don’t need to worry about how you look.
Rather…the coaching I do is really about training your mind. It’s about working with healthy people and helping them make their already good lives even more awesome!
Here’s a recent testimonial from Elaine in Ontario:
“Working with Suzy was an interesting and exciting prospect for me. I went into the course very skeptically (I had never participated in any life coaching programs before) and finished feeling that we had accomplished a lot. It didn’t take long for me to feel very comfortable talking to her about serious issues that you don’t get a chance to discuss in everyday conversations, even with those close to you. The program she takes you through is structured in such a way that each step builds on the previous one so that you can build a strong foundation for moving forward with your aspirations. What I really enjoyed was examining suppositions that I’d held so dearly and seeing that they weren’t necessarily true and could be holding me back. All this was done in a caring, professional manner that made me look forward to the next week’s session. For anyone at a crossroads and feeling overwhelmed, I would highly recommend Suzy’s program. At the conclusion I felt energized and focused. I’m so pleased that I decided to give it a shot.”
