Retirement coaching is an essential investment in order to make a smooth transition from work-life to home-life. My programs are designed to prepare you to make a successful transition by focusing on the five key areas of retirement: mental, social, financial, spiritual and physical.
The goal is to give you a safe place to ask questions you don’t know who else to ask, to explore new possibilities and ideas, address fears and concerns, and move you toward your dreams and goals effectively.
Coaching is customized for each individual, couple or group situation. Each session will be a little different, based on your needs at the time. Along the way, I will give assignments, suggest a course of action or ask you to come up with one. Throughout the process, I will encourage you to take some action steps and monitor your progress toward them. I offer the following services:
Individual Coaching: One-on-one coaching can be the most rewarding because it’s all about you. Through regularly scheduled sessions, I work with you to not only clarify and then implement a strategy to overcome obstacles and achieve goals, but also offer support and encouragement along the way. I can work with you on a single specific issue or goal, or broader measures including your social network or finding life meaning.
Couples coaching: In working with couples, I’ll help you coordinate and discuss your thoughts, feelings, and expectations about retirement. The impact that retiring together or at different times can have on you, and share strategies for growing closer and working together in retirement.
Group Coaching: An alternative to individual coaching is group coaching. It is perfect for corporations, organizations or associations who wish to offer non-financial retirement planning to their employees. Group coaching is much more interactive as each member defines, explores, and opens new thoughts and ideas about retirement. The length of each Group Coaching session is determined by the number of people in the group.
What is the cost of coaching? As you might expect, the cost for coaching depends on the number of sessions, type of session (individual/couples/groups) and you’ll find that coaching rates vary. We do not publish our rates, but I’m happy to discuss them with you personally. Keep in mind that an experienced coach will cost more than a beginner and group rates are the most cost effective.
Whether one-on-one, with your partner, or in a group setting, my commitment to you is to provide a safe, reflective environment where we can work together to help you make the most of your time in retirement.
Coaching sessions will be conducted in my New York City office on the Upper West Side of Manhattan or by phone or an online video service.
