YOU'VE DEDICATED YOUR LIFE CARING FOR OTHERS

It's now time to create a life you can call your own!

LET'S GET STARTED

I'm Carlien. 

I equip amazing midlife women with a structured journey of transition from life caring for others into a life that they can call their own

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."

Beth Dyson - Chief of Staff

Living your Life by Design....

This is exactly what I teach clients in my signature 1:1 coaching and group programs.

ABOUT ME

Carlien Doevendans 

As an Expat trailing spouse, I know first-hand what it feels like to invest years in juggling the kids, work, friends, and community to only discover at mid-life...those kids don't need you and for society to perceive you as not even visible, let alone desirable.

I work with women who are done battling their pasts, bodies and self-esteem and are looking for a more authenticity and joy in every aspect of their lives, work, relationships and even parenting.

I bring all of my hard-won life lessons, my innate compassion and optimism, along with my degree in psychology and certification as a life coach to create safe environments for women to explore and discover their true worth.

Empty Nest

It is normal to experience a sense of loss and sadness when your child leaves home. Despite these feelings, an empty nest could mark the dawn of a new season in your life.

Aging Gracefully

I realized that ageing gracefully isn't about trying to look like a 20-something — it's about living your best life and having the physical and mental health to enjoy it.
