Benefits of Heart-Centered Coaching for Women Over 60

(PLEASE NOTE: These are trying times, especially for seniors. Many, if not most of us, may be experiencing feelings of isolation, fear, and financial insecurity since the coronavirus has gone rampant across the world. While we are having to lock down and self-isolate, we need to do what we can to reach out and connect with others so that we can deal with our anxiety, sense of loneliness and loss. What you need to know about heart-centered personal coaching and counselling for women over 60: During the COVID-19 pandemic, my coaching and counselling services are being offered exclusively by telephone and online counselling, using a secure video-conferencing platform.  Please contact me to ask how this works. I want to be there with you while we all ride this wave.

If you are seeking a gentle way to understand what is holding you back or challenging you at this stage, you will feel at ease with my counselling approach. It is rooted in years of professional experience as a psychotherapist, and enhanced by new learnings and practice in Energy Psychology. You may have heard of Tapping. You can learn more about my approach here.

Perhaps you have lost touch with what you value most, and what has more importance for you at this time. Working together we can tap into your emotional, physical  and spiritual needs to:

  • Explore your potential

  • Uncover your strengths

  • Find your creative expression

  • Celebrate who you are becoming

Being more in touch with your true self will help you:

  • Feel more vibrant and joyful

  • Become focused and purposeful

  • Be more present (less reactive)

  • Find inner peace

Over time, you will notice that you have deepened your relationships, created a trusted close circle of friends,
and extended your social connections.

Where to Meet

In Person

Again, here’s what you need to know about my heart-centered personal coaching and counselling for women over 60: For the safety of my clients and our families, I am following the current guidelines regarding physical distancing and safe self-isolation during the COVID-19 period. So until this health crisis is over, I am seeing clients exclusively online, using a secure video-conferencing platform. 

Once we have flattened the curve, the virus is no longer a threat, and we are able to get out and about safely — which could be many months from now or even half a year away — I will be able once again to offer in-person counselling to you. If you live within driving distance of my Ottawa, Ontario office, I will meet you here for an initial appointment, and follow up in-person or by videoconference, if that is more convenient.

Online Secure Video-Conferencing

You don’t have to live nearby to schedule a confidential (securely-encrypted) video-conference session. I work with clients from all over the world. Please contact me to discuss how this works.

Counselling for Women Over 60
Fees

  • Hourly Rate –  $125.00 CAD
  • Initial Session only (1½ hours) – $187.50 CAD

COVID-19 Announcement:  I realize that the onset of this pandemic is causing financial hardship for many. Please discuss your personal situation with me when you call.

Federal or Provincial taxes (HST or PST) may apply if you live in Ontario, Canada.

After your first appointment, we typically meet for one hour. Some clients require just a few sessions to resolve a particular issue. Others may need more support, and that is fine. We will determine what is best for you as we work together.

Insurance Coverage

In Canada, if your company has an Employee Assistance or Extended Healthcare Plan, you may be reimbursed for these services. Most health care plans include coverage for psychologists, registered psychotherapists and social workers. 

Whether you live in Canada or elsewhere, please check to see if my licensed services are covered under your plan. I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), and I have a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology.

I realize that you may be retired, or about to retire, but some companies have ongoing or post-retirement benefit plans to help former employees over 60 access counselling. It is worth investigating.

Scheduling an Appointment

Let’s begin with a free, no-obligation call where we can talk about your current situation and some of the challenges that you may be facing. During this call, we will plan the best way to move forward, discuss how video-conference sessions work, and set up your first appointment, when you are ready.

You will be able to set up future appointments on your own by calling me, using my appointment calendar, or discussing your availability at the end of the each session.
