What better job than working with women who want to live their lives fully awake

10 reasons to get in touch:

  • You fear you’re heading for a midlife crisis and want help in finding a new direction.

  • You long to make changes in your life but have no idea where or how to start.

  • You’re fed up of feeling like an invisible woman now that you’ve reached midlife.

  • You are in need of some midlife inspiration to guide you to a much more fulfilling second half of life.

  • You’d like to re-evaluate who you are right now and who you want to become.

  • You feel helpless going through a painful separation and divorce and need someone as coach and mentor.

  • You’re open to discovering truths about yourself and how you can become happier as well as more positive in life?

  • You need help in rebuilding self-confidence and self-esteem.

  • You recognise that little voice that says ‘Oh I couldn’t’, ‘I’m too old/unfit/overweight/tired’, ‘What’s the point, nothing ever changes’ and are looking to rediscover your mojo.

I love having conversations helping you gain clarity in your life,
guiding you to finding renewed purpose in midlife.

You have all the wisdom you need already inside you, I’m simply pointing the way.


Let’s face it, life isn’t always sunshine and roses and to be honest living in a perpetual state of nirvana would become stifling and boring right? By the time we’ve reached midlife we’re facing any number of transitions: our children are leaving home, our careers are changing, many of us are looking at separation and divorce and starting over again, we’re dealing with health scares and our parents are ageing. We look in the mirror and struggle to remember the woman staring back at us.

Coaching gives you the opportunity to look at your life and work on the issues you’re facing rather than simply reacting to events as they arise. It gives you the chance to identify limiting beliefs and ineffective habits holding you back from living a full life.

For example you may need support whilst you work your way through divorce. You may need help in rebuilding your confidence after a job loss. You may be wondering what life now holds as you face your empty nest.

Working with a coach enables you to articulate your dreams, to challenge your fears, to learn how you operate.  It helps you clarify your purpose and goals, and helps you achieve what you want in life.

Here’s what a client recently said about our work together:

“The coaching I’ve received from Rebecca over the past several months has helped me to change patterns of thinking and behavior that left me feeling “stuck”, overwhelmed and not really in control of my life.  When I first spoke with her, I described how I’d felt bullied in my workplace.  Her coaching has given me a new perspective that has enabled me to change this dynamic and to move forward.   What perhaps has been even more significant is that in addressing this particular issue, I have begun to experience a new way of living, and a new way of being in the world that has started to transform other aspects of my life profoundly.”


As a coach I have a lot of experience of working with women whose lives are in transition.

  • Separation and Divorce

  • Empty Nest

  • Dating in Midlife and Creating a Dating Profile

  • Career Change

  • Midlife Identity – Who am I?

  • Confidence and Self Esteem

  • Midlife Invisibility

  • Midlife Reinvention

“Coaching is for people who want to live consciously, for those who do not want to go through life half-asleep. Woody Allen said, “Eighty percent of success is showing up;” coaching is for people who choose to show up.” ~ Jan Elfline
