Understand common retirement challenges
We understand that times have changed and so have our expectations for this next phase of life. Many people want to shape their retirement years differently, yet find themselves in unchartered territory. We offer support and guidance to help you determine what is right for you.
In Session 1: Facing Retirement we will help you figure out where you are now before you start to consider where you want to go next. You will gain clarity around the specific challenges you are facing, as well as identify the opportunities that also lie ahead. In a community of like-minded people, you can get a better sense of how you want to approach this next stage of life.
You will ask yourself two key questions: what am I facing? and what are my challenges and opportunities?.

We particularly wanted to look at the psychological implications after retiring. I personally found the lack of structure particularly unsettling – I felt like I needed to make a new life plan.
