RISE & THRIVE

TRANSFORM YOUR MESSY MIDLIFE. SAY YES! TO YOURSELF, TURN YOUR POTENTIAL INTO POWER AND CREATE A LIFE YOU LOVE.

ignite your Passion

Internally, something’s off – an undercurrent of discontentment & a loss of self, direction & vitality.

Questions circle, but go unanswered: “Is this it, or is there more for me to accomplish?”, “Why am I in a slump despite all I have?”, “Who am I now, and what holds importance in my life?”

This unexpected midlife unravelling stands is in stark contrast to the ‘accomplished, energetic, driven, and dynamic you.’

You’ve achieved a lot, yet untapped potential lies within. You’re being asked to step up for yourself, prioritise what truly matters, and stop dancing to other people’s tunes.

It’s time to embrace this new, emerging you, light up your life, and approach it with renewed passion, purpose, and adventure. You’re ready to reignite your life, making the second half the absolute best.

 You crave clarity and direction, eager to reclaim the ‘vital you’ and create a life you truly love.

The challenge? Figuring out how.

ARE YOU..?

E

Feeling stuck, dissatisfied, maybe even trapped?

You know you’re capable of more and have a desire for adventure and excitement. But the courage and confidence to tackle what scares you makes it all feel unrealistic. You want to find your north star and muster the courage to step up for yourself and your ambitions.

E

wrestling with questions about who you are & what you want?

You’re you twisting in the wind, unable to make decisions, leaving you distracted in present, and anxious about the future? You crave clarity, a sense of identity, and purpose and in search of a way to navigate you through. You know it’s time to move forward, but you just don’t know where to start.  

E

living a lie, aware that this isn't the life you truly want?

Sticking with work you no longer have energy for, a relationship that no longer serves you, feeling isolated & losing hope of finding ‘the one’, unhappy with your health, spending time with friends who no longer ‘get you’? It’s uncomfortable, yet familiar. Change is daunting, the fear of failure is real, but an inner drive is urging you to be brave, and give yourself what you need.  

E

running on empty, feeling sad, and not knowing who you are anymore?

Are you gazing in the mirror not recognising the woman who’s looking back? There’s a stark disconnect; you’ve lost yourself. For too long, you’ve prioritised everyone else, putting others & your work first, ignoring & neglecting your own needs. This isn’t who you want to be. It’s now time to reclaim your energy, say yes! to yourself more, & shift away from the expectations placed on you.

E

Feeling unhappy, despite having everything, asking yourself, "is this it?".

You thought you had achieved everything you needed to be happy. Societal expectations, parental approval, and personal goals all ticked off. Yet, you live with a persistent feeling of unfulfillment and unhappiness, unsure of, or afraid to admit, why. The whispers, your inner knowing, which you’ve long-ignored, have growing louder and can no longer be dismissed. This ‘isn’t it’ and things need to change.

E

resisting 50? anxious about the future?

Beneath the surface, there’s an underlying anxiety, a ticking clock that feels like time is slipping away. The notion of being labelled as ‘old’ is something you are not ready for, yet the subtle signs of aging, occasional feelings of invisibility, & the external narrative are hard to ignore. There are times when you find yourself giving in to these stories. Yet, the ‘rebel’ inside you passionately wants to defy the narrative, embrace life without fear, age unapologetically, & shine brightly. 

E

asking yourself, "is this it?". you thought you had everything you need to be happy.

Experiencing shifts in relationships, adapting to new family dynamics, or navigating a budding romance, but old patterns are emerging? Finding it challenging to adopt a healthier lifestyle after a realisation that change is needed? Whether your transition is forced or chosen, your thoughts & emotions are on a roller coaster – at times you feel uncertain, anxious, & reflective, maybe even a sense of loss; at others, a newfound resilience, excitement, & optimism guide your way. In this journey, what you need most is understanding & support.

***

IF YOU’RE SAYING YES TO ANY OF THESE, then welcome.

you are exactly where you need to be!

It may not feel like it right now, but these blocks, shifts, feelings, and crossroads have all come along for a reason – to guide you gently, or otherwise, to a happier, healthier, and more aligned way of being.

So, I invite you to not look to escape them, rather work with them, lean in, take from them what you need to learn, release that which no longer serves you, and courageously step up for yourself and live life intentionally, with purpose and a deep love for the incredible person you are.

How DO I KNOW this to be true?

It’s been my experience, and those of my clients’, too.

MY MIDLIFE STORY

At 56, I navigate life with zest and purpose, living in alignment with who I am and what matters most to me. Daily, I invest in my well-being, making time for self-care, exercise, family, and friends. Free from past insecurities, and nurturing a healthy love of self, I’ve found contentment in a loving, committed relationship.

In balancing life and work, I’ve found a sweet spot that gives me the flexibility and freedom to thrive. And through my work as a Midlife Transition Coach, I have found my groove and purpose, enabling me to guide others on their path to fulfilment.

But life hasn’t always been this way. 

My journey to this point has been shaped by numerous transitions, not always welcomed or smooth, but all rich in experience, and with hindsight, exactly what I needed…

MY MESSY MIDDLE

Career Shifts: Transitioning from a demanding role in London to freelancing & living on the south coast.

Relationships: Navigating a significant breakup to loving myself madly & overcoming past insecurities.

Perimenopause: From ignorance to taking control, navigating with knowledge & confidence.

Internal Battles: Confronting self-doubt, embracing self-belief, and untangling money fears.

Acceptance: Supporting aging parents from afar, embracing independence, with their blessing.

Embracing ‘Otherhood’: Clarifying personal desires, finding fulfilment as a much loved, ‘cool auntie’.

Saying YES! to Myself: Trusting, believing, and taking a leap, prioritising personal fulfilment and growth.

Rising from my ‘messy middle’ wasn’t easy, but it’s been life-affirming. It’s taken time, but time was needed. I’ve learned so much about myself and how to approach life’s challenges.

Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been

David Bowie

Lynda

 navigating my 50’s

Approaching 50, a subtle undercurrent of unhappiness emerged once more, leaving me feeling stuck and unsettled.

Entering a new decade without a clear plan, surrounded by society’s negative narratives about aging, menopause, single woman, career limitations, health concerns, inadequate pension pots (the list goes on!),  spooked me for a while.

A pivotal realisation dawned—I needed a new vision, a fresh North Star! It was time for a new narrative, a redefinition of turning fifty, and the creation of my own playbook.

I invite you to do the same!

Do I have it all figured out? No. Do I approach life differently? Absolutely! Instead of resisting change, I embrace it with adventure, openness, navigating more lightly, and the belief that whatever happens, I’ll be more than okay!

“Lynda helped me unlock my potential. I was in an OK job, doing OK, but struggling financially and my opinion of myself was dire.

Within a couple of months, I had a small business running on the side. Within a couple of years, I had given up my day job. And now, six years on, I am the managing director of an international company with 30 people working for me.”

Andi

“Working with Lynda has been a real eye-opener. I’ve always questioned myself about my life and work; what I should be doing, what are my priorities, what makes me happy – but it was only when I had coaching with Lynda, in a time when I was particularly lost, that I managed to organise my thoughts and form a plan.

  • FINDING FREEDOM from what’s holding you back, exploring the challenges and opportunities of midlife, helping you understand what may be hindering your progress and why achieving your goals is not always a linear process;
