Is it time to get your midlife mojo back?
Want to feel like you are running your life, rather than life running you down?
You’re not alone!
Midlife is a time of incredible change - some of it wanted and some of it not. We can get so busy doing the business of life, we can often feel there’s no time for living life to the full.
Today, MidLife is a time of incredibly opportunity for women.
It’s been completely redefined in the last couple of decades by two game-changing developments: unprecedented financial and social independence, and an extra 20 years of life expectancy - not at the end of our lives, but in the middle.
We can be and do anything we want!
Yet many of us can feel completely lost and overwhelmed by the struggle to juggle all those balls we are desperately trying to keep in the air. We often think there’s too much ‘stuff’ to wade through.
And that's where coaching comes in. Coaching is simply a safe, neutral space where you get to explore what you want, and how you want your life to feel... and then figure out ways of doing that. It's like putting on a pair of glasses and seeing clearly for the first time in a while. Here are some options.
Midlife, redefined, Better, Bolder, Bighter
If you have read my latest book, Midlife, redefined: Better, Bolder, Brighter, and would like to get some 1:1 feedback on the exercises you did, I offer a one hour 1:1 zoom session, or a package of 3 one hour sessions to go through all you have learned, planned and actioned from reading the book.
I'm also running some small group sessions. All details are on the book page - click below.Coaching for readers of Midlife, redefined: Better, Bolder, Brighter.
How often do you get time for yourself?
I mean, real time.
Not a minute here, or a half hour there.
Not a quick walk after work, or a quick bath at bedtime.
I mean focussed, intentional, time, space and energy on YOU?
Coaching gives you that space, time and energy. With powerful questions, and empowering exercises and coaching models, I will provide a structure for you to invest quality thinking on you.
Each coaching session is usually an hour long, and costs €100.
Longer packages have a discount, and there are also options for monthly or quarterly check-in sessions. You can decide what's best for you when we chat.
“I have been so lucky to find this amazing life coach. Alana has taught me to shine the light on myself and listen to my own voice. This voice was overshadowed for a long time, I am working on listening and asking myself direct questions about how the real Margaret would sound? This has seen an increase in my self belief. Alana is encouraging and challenging and I feel I am on a positive journey to finding the real ME, and looking forward to seeing my real self evolve."
“Thank you so much. I have enjoyed every minute of being coached by you. I instantly warmed to you, and within half an hour I knew that this was going to be something amazing. Genuine warmth, goodness and empathy radiates from you, actively listening and being totally engaged while gently guiding me to find answers inside myself I didn't know where there. Thank you so much for energising me, and helping me to recognise and value my strengths again. You are a great coach and I will definitely be recommending you.

"You're a life-changer!
The thing I am most proud of and extremely grateful for is that I had the courage to sign up for your Midlife Coaching Programme! It has changed my way of thinking about almost everything!! It certainly has made me challenge my beliefs in myself, my attitude to what I am capable of, the realisation that I can make the choice to divert my energy into something positive rather than dwell on what I have no control over! It is very empowering. It has given me huge self-belief and peace of mind.
I felt that I engaged with you from the very first minute we spoke. I really like your style – you have the extraordinary ability to enable me to express my feelings in an open and honest way. I don’t think I have ever been as honest with anyone else in my whole life! I never felt judged, but what I did feel was that you listened, understood where I was coming from and then gave amazing, positive and very honest advice. I didn’t think I would get to where I am at the moment in accepting that there are situations which I have no control over and that I just need to accept that.
I have learned so much from your sheer grit, hard work, determination, courage, self-belief and your honesty – you are always ready to admit when you’ve had a bad week- and that, by the way, is very reassuring for me! What you have achieved is astounding in anyone’s book!! You are such an amazing role model. You should be so proud of yourself. You have engrained in me the belief that I too can do anything, or at least give it a try!! You have helped me to appreciate all my talents, who I can be, what I am capable of, all the good things in my life and how I can make things even better through self-belief, kindness to myself pride confidence and courage and lots of hard work!! I feel that I am taking control of my life and am moving towards a better future!
I love the quote: “When life feels hard, it’s because it is hard!!” It’s a great mantra which I have adopted.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! You’re a life-changer!
Mid-age doesn't have to be a diving board where you fall off into dark depths unable to swim.
Mid-age is a spring board where you leap into the best part of your life.
