Retirement and Inspirement Coaching


Enjoy real aliveness in later life

coaching-1People live an average of 30 years after retirement. Most of us look forward to those years and the increased freedom and leisure time they promise. But the transition to post-career is not always easy to navigate. Once we stop working, difficulties may arise.

Who am I?

After decades of work we may find ourselves feeling somewhat lost. We might discover that we’re missing our colleagues and the structure and meaning our work provided. We may lose our sense of identity, feeling unsure of who we are now. We could become bored, depressed or anxious.

What should I do with the rest of my life?

What do you want for the rest of your life? What gives you a sense of connection and purpose? Do you have long-held dreams you would like to explore? Is there anything in the way of relaxing into the life you want to live? Do you have beliefs or fears about aging that hold you back? How can you contribute your gifts and skills? Are you drawn to begin an encore career? These are some of the important issues that are reviewed in the course of Retirement and Inspirement Coaching.

How Retirement and Inspirement Coaching Works

The coaching process begins as you complete the Retirement and Inspirement Coaching self-evaluation form, Taking Steps into Deeper Happiness and Contentment.

Completing the self-evaluation form helps you to identify your attitudes and perceptions about aging and retirement. Your answers give us a powerful set of tools to use in the coaching process.

Coaching sessions may include rapid eye technology, hypnotherapy, stress reduction, life review, meditation and other techniques. Sessions are one hour long and can take place in person, by phone or via Skype. Please email Gaea at to set up a free 10-minute initial phone consultation and begin the coaching process.
