SELF-DISCOVERY. PERSONAL GROWTH. COLLECTIVE WISDOM.

*** 2024 schedule AVAILABLE SOON ***

Say YES! to Yourself This Summer

Welcome to The Midlife Slice, a summer series of small group workshops, boutique day retreats, coaching pop-ups, and impromptu gatherings, that invite women in midlife to say YES! to themselves. To take intentional pauses. To learn, grow and connect. To navigate midlife’s disruptors and lifequakes with more ease and understanding. To be healthier, happier, and wiser and ultimately, to thrive in their 40s, 50s and beyond.

These guided, self-discovery and wellbeing experiences offer you the space to breathe, to focus inwardly and tap into your innate wisdom and creativity, whilst enjoying the company of other midlifers and benefitting from their support, experience, and inspiration.

You will also:

Explore your midlife questions
Gain a greater sense of self
Benefit from new perspectives
Find direction and develop a sense of purpose
Learn how to reset your priorities 
Take away tangible actions to apply in your own life

If you are in the ‘messy middle’, starting to feel that you are about to enter, or well on your way to the other side … yes! there really is the ‘other side’ and, from my experience, it’s a great place to be … then The Midlife Slice coaching and wellbeing experiences are for you.

Join us and start to create the story of your own midlife playbook.

Putting the ‘me’ into menopause

EVENING WORKSHOP

Menopause has its challenges. They can be physical, mental, or spiritual or a combination of all three. But it can also be a time of positivity, of renewed energy & a new you.

In this workshop, explore how a holistic approach to wellbeing, a growth mindset & being a good kind of self-ish, can make perimenopause a positive & self-nourishing experience that encourages you to make the most of the years ahead.

SELF-DISCOVERY TREASURE TRAIL

DAY or EVENING WORKSHOP

If you’ve ever wondered what the heck life coaching is, or how it could benefit you, then this taster session is for you.

Or if you are you feeling stuck, or somehow disconnected with yourself & restless about your life, then this workshop could provide some clues as to the way forward.

This light-hearted ‘treasure trail’ of self-discovery will help you reconnect with yourself & find new nuggets of wisdom.

SAY YES! TO YOU VISION BOARDING

DAY RETREAT

Are you looking to kick start this September with a sense of optimism & excitement? Do you want to connect with your dreams & ambitions, or are you looking to find a new direction or purpose? Then Say YES! to You!

This creative day retreat invites you to pause, explore & create. Discover what possibilities are available to you, feel good about yourself & your life & design your own vision for midlife & beyond.

FAREWELL 40’S, WELL HELLO! 50’s

DAY RETREAT

Turning 50 (or 40, or 60 for that matter) can evoke a wide range of emotions & thoughts. It can be a time of pride & accomplishment, anxiety & stress, reflection & introspection, or a time to focus on health & well-being or explore new opportunities.

At this retreat you are invited to say farewell to your 40s (30s or 50s), welcome in the new decade & create a clear vision for yourself and your life going forward, leaving with a commitment to making it happen. 

LIFE IS ‘IN’ THE TRANSITIONS

2-PART workshop / DAY RETREAT

We all encounter ‘disruptors’ & ‘lifequakes’ in our lifetime, many of which can occur in midlife. Some are voluntary, others we think we are prepared for, but often are not, & others simply blindside us. Each can change the course of our lives, but how we see the ‘life’ in these transitions is up to us.

At this day retreat, you’ll learn how to equip yourself to turn unease & upheaval into growth & renewal and navigate these transitions with meaning, purpose, & skill.

Your Coach

Hi, I’m Lynda,

I am a qualified Life Coach with over 10 years’ experience. I am Third Age Women Certified (a certification focused on menopause and wellbeing), a Practitioner of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) & Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), & have recently completed ‘Navigating Midlife Transitions’ with the Modern Elder Academy.

At 55, I look back on my perimenopausal years as a time of personal growth & expansion, having experienced many disruptors, lifequakes & transitions in midlife of my own.

From ending a significant relationship, to investing heavily in my own EQ and finding my ‘Mr Right’;

 From leaving full-time employment, after 25+ years, to set up as a freelance marketing consultant & midlife transition coach.

Moving to the coast after living in London for 16 years.

From exploring respite foster caring to embracing being part of ‘the otherhood’, seeing myself as child-ful, not childless;

Accepting that my parents are in their twilight years & coming to terms with supporting them from afar;

Not knowing my ‘what’s next?’ to finding my north star;

The shedding of old identities & embracing the new, & learning to love myself, no matter what … to name but a few!

I love guiding my clients to a healthier, happier place, through the trials and tribulations of their own perimenopausal years, to the freedom of menopause and beyond.

I look forward to welcoming you to The Midlife Slice soon.

IMPROMPTU GATHERINGS

I love an impromptu gathering – you know those late afternoons & early evenings when the sun’s unexpectedly come out & you want to make the most of them with others? Or you take a last-minute decision to have a day off work & you want to go outdoors or try something new?

The Midlife Slice Impromptu Gatherings are just that. There’s no advanced schedule available, just a few days or, at times, maybe even just a few hours’ notice, for a fun event or activity that is rooted in wellbeing and with a midlife twist. 

They may be organised by The Midlife Slice, a member of the community, or in collaboration with other groups who value the same things that we do – feeling good about ourselves, our lives, and the world we live in.

Be Inspired

“Lynda has been a positive impact on my life, a strong mentor, inspirational and now a friend. I would recommend any woman who wants to re-evaluate their life, change their career or simply learn to enjoy what life has to offer to explore coaching with her.”
Julie

“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 attended a workshop about 2 years ago, in a time when I was particularly lost, that I managed to organise my thoughts and form a plan.”
