For Women 40+
Seeking Clarity and Direction
If you are like most people, your goal in life is to be happy. And contrary to what some believe, money is NOT the key to happiness.
So what is? Research shows that one of the biggest factors to increase happiness is living a life of purpose.
Discover Your Purpose is designed for anyone in the midst of a transition—a job loss, career change, a breakup or divorce, an empty nest, geographic move, recovery from an illness, death of a loved one, or anyone who is simply feeling unhappy or lost in life.
If you are lying awake at night wondering “What’s next for me?” Why am I here? What am I meant to do on this earth?”
Trust me…you are not alone! And this is the perfect place for you to connect with other purpose-seekers to discover those answers.
I get it, because I’ve been there.
When I was turning 50 and my twin daughters were about to leave home, I felt lost and anxious. My whole identity had been wrapped up in my role as a mother. Without that, who was I? What was I supposed to do? Did I have anything of value to offer the world?
As I reached out to other women, I learned that this feeling of loss and uncertainty is common in midlife, a time of challenges and transitions for many of us. What are YOUR challenges? Maybe it’s an empty nest, like me, or maybe it’s something else… A job loss or career change, a stale relationship or recent divorce, a geographic move and loss of community, menopausal or other difficult health symptoms, the death of parents or other loved ones…
Or maybe it’s not so specific. Maybe you feel that vague midlife malaise. You can’t quite put your finger on why, but you know you’re not happy. You know there’s got to be more in this life for you.
When women come to me with these midlife frustrations, I encourage them to embrace this time of life. Because…
In midlife, it’s YOUR TURN.
Your turn to decide what matters most to you, today.
Your turn to own your gifts and your value.
Your turn to discover your interests and passions.
In short, it’s YOUR TURN
to create the life you want—and deserve.

Since pausing my full-time career to care for elderly parents, I found I was doing meaningful work but began feeling aimless professionally. In my 50s I wanted to become more deliberate about how I spend my energy and pursue income. But where to start? I’d met Hélène in a separate setting and suspected that a program curated under her watchful eye would be packed with insight and meaning. I was right. Hélène’s easy approach and careful guidance allowed me to explore, discover, and experience epiphanies at my own pace. Hélène was instrumental in helping me form a purpose statement that connects my many interests. When I got some coaching from her, she offered incisive ideas along with gentle support. It’s like talking to a friend who sees your best self. Now I understand how my gifts are alive and well in the work I currently do and the caregiving I provide. I also feel renewed excitement about what I have to offer and where I might take that professionally. It’s like I harbor a secret that brings me joy. And I can infuse that into everything I do.
I had recently resigned from my position in education and had moved back to the US after being abroad for 7 years. My son had just left for university at the same time and I was feeling pretty lost. After completing Helene’s Discover Your Purpose class, I have solidified a well-articulated purpose that aligns with my values. I am more hopeful and more connected to myself and others. If you are looking for a source of positive and constructive feedback on your journey to discover and define your life’s purpose, Helene’s well-organized course is just the fit. It is structured in a way that is user friendly, supportive, and based in research. I greatly appreciated this experience and am excited to live my purpose in meaningful ways. Thank you Hélène!

When I started Discover Your Purpose, I was feeling like I had too many small fires burning and was wondering which one to add kindling to. The course felt very open and organic. It was a great way to understand myself better and learn how to work with that understanding going forward. I was pleasantly surprised. I got so much out of this program and was able to make a powerful shift, coming out of it feeling peace, acceptance, and hope. Thank you, Hélène!
When I took the Discover Your Purpose course, I was working part time, my youngest child was in college, and my oldest was moving out with her boyfriend. I was feeling a need for more direction and clarity of purpose. Hélène’s approach is simply magnificent. She guides us through a logical, well developed, and detailed process. I’m now refining my purpose statement and looking forward to living it each day.

How do I pronounce your first name, Hélène?
Unless you took French growing up, you may never have seen my first name, Hélène. I was raised in Paris and went to French schools so the pronunciation stuck. I love it but it’s a bit of a pain when meeting new people!
So I’ll make it simple. Say the two letters L and N in a row, with the emphasis on the N.
L – N
But don’t worry, I’ve heard it all and won’t take offense if you don’t pronounce it right!
