Coaching Through Life Transitions and Beyond

What are life transitions?

Life transitions are the key turning points in our lives. They present both challenges and opportunities. Life transitions bring a range of emotions and like all change, can bring with it a sense of loss and uncertainty, but they can also bring a sense of excitement and optimism for the future.

Mind Design Coaching can show you the possibilities for change, focussing on your strengths, and taking you to another level in your life that is full of growth, excitement and success.

Some of the major life transitions we work with include;

  • Changing career
  • Starting a business
  • Getting married
  • Separation/divorce
  • Having a child
  • Leaving or re-entering the workforce
  • Losing a loved one
  • Moving house, state or country
  • Redundancy
  • Retirement
  • Empty nest

Coaching can be a powerful tool before, during and after life transitions to help you stay focussed, positive and able too find the opportunities in the transition or set a new direction for your life that is meaningful to you and purposeful.

Maternity Leave

We coach women to effectively hand over, consider options for keeping in touch during leave, identifying and addressing changes in identity as a result of having a child, returning to work and the changes this will bring to their lives.

Mind Design Coaching Fiona Stubbings


We coach individuals, teams and managers through every stage of the process. Coaching for redundancy can help staff develop a healthy and realistic perspective about the process as well as encourage growth and resilience, personal agency and motivation. Our strengths based approach focusses on what people enjoy doing, what matters most to them and what they want to spend their work time on in the future



Often employees will go through what is known as the ‘change curve’ where they will experience a range of negative emotions initially. We allow the staff member the time and space to process these emotions before working with them to shift their perspective.


Redundancies can often impact on the motivation and commitment of teams remaining. We work with them to develop ‘collective hope’ and ‘collective self efficacy’ and help them to plan for change.


Often the manager of a team bears the most strain during redundancy processes. We coach managers to use their strengths, build their resilience and remain positive and future focussed.

In all our corporate coaching packages, we take a strengths based approach and support people to frame their goals in a positive and future focussed way.
