“I started my journey with Isobel McArthur and then Flourish Beyond 40 as a stressed professional lady; juggling a demanding job, whilst caring for my elderly Mum. I was trying to be the best wife, mum and nanna possible. I was infinitely aware I’d hit the peri menopause and was, quite truthfully, burned out, exhausted and somewhat resigned to the fact, ‘this is life!’ Not a pretty picture! 

However, I quickly learned that I wasn’t juggling, as I thought, I’d actually marginalised everything that was dear to me and had wrongly allowed my job to become the dominant factor in my life. I also realised that any ‘me time’ was, at best, a few guilty moments grabbed here and there. But best of all I learned, ‘this is not life!’

So, 7 Modules into Isobel’s inspiring programme and I’m now a professional lady with a stressful job; who has learned to incorporate harmony and balance into a busy schedule. I’ve learned how to relax, I’m learning how to meditate, I’ve tweaked my diet and exercise regime; ensuring it complements my peri menopausal state, I’ve also learned to manage my stress levels and my emotional well-being has had an overhaul.  And there’s still more to follow.

I was having lunch with a dear friend, last week, and she told me a story about women having a bowl of gold coins and how we invariably give them away to: our family, friends, jobs, work colleagues, etc etc; often forgetting to keep any in reserve for ourselves…So true, therefore Flourish Beyond 40 is my way of putting the gold coins back into the pot!  

I cannot recommend the programme enough nor Isobel’s unique and personalised approach to taking every step with you.”

The most amazing thing about the course is that I am being given support, answers and help with all the changes I am going through at this time of my life.  Going through this stage of life you often feel alone but Isobel has made me understand that I am not alone and I can get through this stage of life with help, support, techniques, tools and the strategies on the programme.

I receive advice, encouragement from a truly amazing lady (Isobel) who has an answer for all my woe’s, and if she doesn’t, you can surely bet that there will be an email in the coming days to give me the answer.

Since joining Flourish Beyond 40 I feel like I am turning back the clock. I have found new confidence in myself, learning to accept myself for who I am. I now question myself on what I am doing and why. I don’t want to give up just yet – I want to do more!

Age is definitely a lifestyle not a number. I am so happy and feel very honoured to be on this programme but most of all very happy to realise there is a lot more in life to experience.

Isobel once told me that in life there are living angels, that help and protect us without us realising at the time. Over the last couple of years I have come to realise this is true and I am blessed that Isobel is one of my living  angels that helps me through life. I highly recommend Isobel McArthur and the Flourish Beyond 40 programme to any woman in midlife and beyond.

“I would love women over 40 to know that it is a fabulous time period  of their  life and that anything  is possible ! I climbed my first mountain when I was 40 and it was the tipping point for a whole new career and sense of purpose.  Putting self care first is so important , the relationship with yourself is the greatest one of all so nurture it daily !  Having known and worked with  Isobel  for many years  I am excited , delighted and ignited  to see her continuing  to  be a guiding light for women. I cannot  not think of anyone more capable of doing so – you are a beacon of light Isobel, keep shining .”

“I first began working with Isobel  nearly 2 years ago now and boy do i wish i had found her sooner. My reason for saying this is not only does Isobel make you feel instantly at ease, she is also very professional in her manner and knowledgeable in her work.  All of this and working from her heart allows you to take control of your life once again and to love the skin you live in.  In addition supporting you fully as you accomplish your dreams. Love this lady,  best coach and therapist I’ve met.”

“Isobel is one of the most inspirational, experienced professionals I have had the privilege to learn from. She is my mentor and coach and qualified in a number of disciplines. She is also generous, gives whole heartedly and is extremely supportive. I recommend Isobel without a doubt and cannot thank her enough for her guidance.”

“Ahead of my first session with Isobel. I knew I wanted to chart a new path in my life’s journey, but I did not know how.  I was very sceptical that Isobel, would be able to help me in any way or understand me. That it was going to be another one of those sessions “how did that make you feel”, “why do you think you felt like that”, “how would you do that differently”…

I suppose you could say I had cut myself off emotionally. It wasn’t just the negative feelings I lost, also the feelings of love, joy and hope. Without knowing it Isobel, started rebuilding me one piece at a time. The sessions were like sitting down with a friendly, wiser companion who gave a different perspective on how to look at the world, allowing me to see me and to also see a different perspective.

What really surprised me is that Isobel got me. She has the ability to detect my mood in a split second, how to nurture my single mindedness, passion and determination and not to take away the real me. I’ve built on the skills I have learnt and I am experiencing a life that is so much more positive, fulfilling and richer than previously.

There are people who touch our lives at certain points on our life’s journey. We are forever changed and forever grateful for having met them and for the growth they have helped us to achieve.
Isobel McArthur is one such person in my life. Isobel is passionate about life and it shows through her energy and enthusiasm. Her easy going & friendly nature and professionalism provides a personality that creates a relaxed and powerful atmosphere. She makes you see yourself, places high value on it being about you, motivates and pushes in such a gentle manner through your thoughts and emotions.”
