Retirement Coaching

Is your career journey coming to an end or is this just an exciting new beginning?  Don’t retire, REFIRE with the support of a retirement counsellor.

Retirement Transition Coaching sessions are designed for those who are in pre-retirement planning (up to five years prior to retirement) and those newly retired and looking for a positive transition to retirement experience.  Those who have been retired for some time may also benefit in a fresh perspective in deepening their retirement experience.

Retirement coaching is beyond financial advice.  As you search the web for information on retirement planning, there are plenty of resources on financial planning for retirement.  This is certainly an important element in planning for your future beyond work.  However, we are living longer and healthier so it’s important to consider how we will ensure fulfillment and happiness in those later years. 

Following an active and productive career, you have a wealth of knowledge and skills and many are looking to continue adding value in new ways.

In this 21st century approach to retirement transition, we let go of old-school thinking.  We explore a range of options and approaches for designing a retirement “third age”.  This may include a options such as:

  • Consulting

  • Volunteering

  • Life-long learning

  • Leisure

  • Career-change and entrepreneurship

Retirement Counselling: What is it?

Retirement counselling sessions are unique one-to-one discussions with a retirement coach that provide practical, professional guidance.  Through an introspective, challenging process, we will help you explore your career and retirement questions in a constructive and illuminating way and set you on a path to achieving a fulfilling retirement.

In supporting you to create a retirement plan, we focus on your core strengths, motivated skills, interests and values and help you balance this with your practical needs.

We are idealistic and realistic.

As part of your consultation, we will co-build a tailored action plan that provides you with clarity, energy and direction to transition to a fulfilling retirement!

What’s included and how does it work?

A Transition to Retirement counselling session includes:
