It is a fact that most people we work with — perhaps like you — have never before sought the kind of professional help we provide. Sure, lots of people have read self–help books or had a bit of coaching. But what we offer is unique in its ability to help people tackle the things that are holding them back and become the best possible version of themselves as they enter a new phase of life.
There are as many reasons for approaching us as there are people seeking support. But here is a flavour of what might be termed the 'presenting symptoms' – the desires which lead people to reach out to us for help:
- Discovering who you are without your work persona; getting to know the real you
- Finding new purpose without becoming a slave to it
- Developing a routine with space to enjoy your newfound freedom
- Dealing with feelings about the end of your working life
- Channeling your need for power and control
- Guarding against 'freedom frenzy'
- Learning to cope with difficult feelings when you relied on work as an escape
- Coping with loss of status
- Using your work skills to give something back, both to yourself and others
And when it comes to relationships:
- Managing how retirement impacts relationships at home
- Creating new social and support networks
- Managing contact — or loss of contact — with work colleagues
