about rebecca perkins the midlife coach

I’m thrilled you’ve found your way here

I’m passionate about reinventing midlife. My love and desire is to guide and empower you to make positive changes in your life now you’ve reached midlife. I want to help you answer the questions you have about your life and to inspire you to live the second half of your life with renewed passion and zest.

Have you been asking yourself these questions?

  • When I look in the mirror I have no idea who that invisible woman is? I’m sure I used to know her, yet somehow I no longer recognise her.

  • Am I having a midlife crisis?

  • How do I get the emotional support I need through my divorce?

  • How can I increase my self-confidence and improve my self-esteem in midlife?

  • What happens now I have an empty nest? What is my role now that the children have grown up?

  • Relationship problems, separation, divorce…who can I turn to who will understand?

  • Single again…what have I got going for me? How can I get over my fear of online dating?

  • I used to have dreams, how can I create a vision for midlife I feel passionate about?

  • ‘Oh I couldn’t’, ‘I’m too old/unfit/overweight/tired’, ‘What’s the point, nothing ever changes’…I’m tired of hearing that voice and what to change!

  • How can I reignite passion in my tired marriage?

  • What do I honestly feel as I approach those milestone birthdays – 40, 50, 60?

Then I can help!

I’m an explorer and live with the belief that we create our own experience of life via our thinking.

Let me tell you a little about me:

  • I’m a woman in her early 50s, embracing midlife and reinventing herself.

  • I have first hand experience of the many changes we are facing in midlife.

  • I’m a daughter of ageing parents, one with dementia.

  • I’m the mother of 3 young adults (26, 23, 18) I understand the challenges of an empty nest.

  • I’ve been through a painful divorce after a twenty-one year marriage and am now thriving.

  • I’ve experienced the highs and lows and highs again of midlife online dating!

  • I know what it’s like to experience periods of low self-esteem and lack of self-confidence. I’ve suffered years of depression and have come through it, stronger and more at ease with who I am.

  • I’m an explorer and live with the belief that we create our own experience of life via our thinking.

  • I love my life whilst aware it wasn’t always that way.

  • I believe in being vulnerable and open and fully showing up for life. This is no dress rehearsal.
