mid career professionals

Navigating the complexities of your 30’s and 40’s often comes with a set of unique challenges. Professionals during their mid-career, can find themselves struggling with newfound responsibilities both in the workplace and at home.

As the years progress, many professionals find themselves at a juncture where work commitments surge simultaneously with personal responsibilities. The dream home, marriage, and kids can bring about overwhelming feelings when paired with escalating career demands. Suddenly, the strategies and skills that once proved beneficial earlier in life, seem unable to address the mounting pressures of this new phase.

There’s also the weight of societal expectations to contend with. Some might be confronting the realisation that they aren’t where they “should be” according to societal timelines – perhaps still awaiting parenthood, home ownership, or career progression.

For many, this period brings about reflections on societal norms around parenting and gender roles. People may wrestle with their changing identity as a professional and as a new parent. The idea that “I can have it all” may clash with their genuine experience during this period. Amidst all of this, there’s an undercurrent of identity evolution, and a recalibration of who they are in this new life chapter.

This can manifest in feelings of being spread too thin, a nagging sense of underachievement, and strains in personal relationships. There’s often a desire to refocus, to zero in on what truly matters, to embrace changing life circumstances, and to find strategies that harmoniously balance personal and professional lives.

I offer a fresh, approachable, and goal-centric perspective to coaching and counselling. My goal is to walk beside you, offering strategies and insights that align with your unique challenges and aspirations.

It’s also important to find a psychologist who is right for you, and you feel you can connect with. I offer free 15 minute consultations, giving us an opportunity to meet, and see if we’re the right fit for each other before you decide to book an appointment.
