And I love equipping amazing midlife women who dare to dream of what life might look like beyond caring for others. I show them how to structure their own journey of transition that will help them arrive at that place.
Whether it’s rediscovering and redefining YOU at your core, approaching empty nest, a trailing expat spouse, or taking the step in putting yourself first, I provide actionable steps to help you live your life by design.
My work is all about supporting caring women in their midlife in finding new meaning to life's big questions, "Who am I?" and "What do I want?" by providing them a safe space to explore and create their own personal roadmap in Living Your Life by Design.
Just Imagine If...
You threw out some of your beliefs on how life is meant to be, overcome resistance to make changes and live your life by design.
You began living your life fully now, rather than waiting for some perfect time to pursue your dreams.
You could finally leave the past behind and break free from the emotional triggers that keep you stuck.
You accepted your body - wrinkles, cellulite and all - learned to age with grace, dignity and self-acceptance.
Your life was filled with nurturing and supportive relationships...starting with the relationship with yourself.
You can let your intellectual and emotional desires come together with a sense of harmony, belonging and purpose
What Clients are Saying
"I felt very much like an expatriate in my own country and reached out to Carlien because of the uncertainty and emotions of being literally "stuck". I am a lot calmer, more engaged in the present, possess greater clarity and cheerful! Carlien has a nurturing nature. Her caring thoughtfulness shines through in conversations and anyone who works with her can only thrive. "
Hester Appoyer - Communication Specialist
"My husband and I moved back to our home country in August of 2019 and since that time we had not really felt settled. Her thoughtful questions helped me unlock aspects of my thinking that I had been stuck on for months. I believe that her thoughtful approach to coaching allowed me to get to a place where I can thrive as a mother, wife, professional and individual."
