Midlife Alchemist and Coach for Women
Lisa Petty, PhD
As a Midlife Alchemist (and crone-in-training), I help women embody midlife as a powerful beginning – rather than the beginning of the end! I got to this place as a result of a few things, including my own journey from midlife fog and confusion to clarity about my own path.
And my own path involved getting a PhD that centred on the well-being of midlife women. My research doctorate focused on the social and cultural expectations that get in the way of women looking after their own well-being, and how women work around those obstacles. What I learned in the process helped me create the clarity I need personally, too.
As women, we’re being smothered by the expectations that others have of us, along with our own high standards for meeting those expectations. For many, the social mantra that women can ‘have it all’ has created a situation in which women feel forced to ‘do it all’ – and do it all perfectly. Women feel exhausted, overwhelmed and sometimes resentful. Maybe you can relate?
Have you started to question who you are now? If you strip away being someone’s partner, mother or daughter, who are you? Have you started to question why you’re here? Do you feel an urge to create or do something – but don’t know what it is?
After hundreds of interviews, countless hours of conversations, my own journey, plus my experience mentoring women, I’ve formulated a simple, step-by-step strategy that helps women like you identify well-being gaps and get clarity on their next steps.

Join me there for Facebook Live coaching sessions where I will share strategies to help you along your own midlife alchemy path.
I hope to see you there!
