Hello, I’m Geraldine Crawford I offer freelance training and consultancy, providing workshop facilitation and coaching services for the over 50s

Who will benefit from this course?

Anyone over fifty wanting to get more out of life.

Anyone considering full or semi-retirement or who is already retired.

NB: I do not make any reference to or give any advice about pensions or financial planning.

Course Fees

Please do not hesitate to contact me either by phone or email to discuss your requirements.

I will also be able to provide more detail regarding fees for both individual and workshop services.

What is the course content?

There is an emphasis on providing tools and techniques to help you explore and clarify thoughts, feelings and priorities in order to ensure your decision-making is more informed. The course materials include case studies and pen pictures documenting the current and real-life experiences of local people making transitions in their fifties.

How is the course delivered?

It is interactive, informal and supportive. Participants are encouraged to share their thoughts and experiences but can contribute as much or as little as they wish. There is usually a lot of good humour and laughter!

Feedback from previous courses:

” I would like to recommend this course to other fifty some-things!”

“It was all very relevant to me, crystallised my muddled thinking!”

“It’s given me motivation at exactly the right time in my life”
