I started ‘Your Midlife Coach’ because I felt there was a lack of support for women going through major life changes in their 40’s and 50’s.


My Story

I live with my husband in Perth, Western Australia. Between us we have four young adult children, some still living at home part-time. I’ve lived in Perth ever since migrating to Australia from Europe in 1993. Having moved here without any family, I’ve learned to rely heavily on building new relationships and friendships. This wonderful support network has helped me through my many personal challenges and transitions – two divorces, online dating, career change, single parenthood and experiencing anxiety and depression.

I started ‘Your Midlife Coach’ because I felt there was a lack of support for women going through major life changes in their 40’s and 50’s.

When my sons became independent, I struggled. I felt sad and confused, but didn’t understand why I was feeling this way or what to do about it.

Well-meaning comments such as “You’ve got so much free time now, do something” didn’t help. I felt unmotivated and really didn’t know what I wanted to do with all this free time!

I also started to feel invisible, unnoticed. I’m not old, but I’m not young anymore either – so what am I? Where – and how – do I fit in?

Fortunately, with the right support, I survived all those personal challenges. I am now stronger and more at peace with who I am and where I want to be, with a renewed sense of purpose. It’s been a journey of self-discovery, and it has inspired me to help other women work through the emotions that are holding them back. I have the experience and the tools to help answer those questions you have about your life, so that you can move forward with purpose and passion.


What People Say

Birgit's support group for women going through divorce gave me the courage to move on.

Liz CSelf Employed

I would recommend Birgit to any woman who is feeling lost and without purpose. Birgit is a great listener and provides a safe space to talk about difficult emotions. There’s no judgement, no rush to set goals, no pressure to make decisions. Birgit helped me to find my own answers which were there all along.

Jana HExecutive Assistant

Birgit’s empty nest workshop was amazing. The support of women going through the same issue was inspiring and I finally felt understood. There were a few tears through the day but also many laughs. I left feeling inspired and positive about moving forward with my life.

Steph ASales Assistant

Birgit helped me to step back from my issues and figure out where I wanted to head next. Thanks to her I managed to set some achievable goals and work towards them one step at a time. I found more direction in my life and feel more confident than I have ever before.

Emily CTravel Consultant

Working with Birgit has been eye opening. I felt stuck but couldn’t see the obstacles in front of me. Birgit’s coaching has helped me to gain clarity and listen to my intuition and take risks. I am now back at university and finally finishing that degree.

What makes Birgit different from other coaches is that she’s been there, done that! I felt understood and supported through my difficult divorce.
