In September 2019 I was wrestling with whether to retire or not. I had heard stories of people retiring happily, but also some who were miserable in retirement. I found Janet Smith via the Internet. Janet is easy to talk to, and has a professional approach. Within a couple of sessions she showed me that I was well positioned for retirement. Janet found this by examining all aspects of my life. I was pleasantly surprised to find the reality of my position. [I guess this is something good counsellors can do - make you see your situation in perspective.] I then took retirement. Janet helped me find objectives and useful things to do in my new life - unfettered by work! I have developed several interests over the last 8 months. Janet helped me see that retirement is not the end of life, but a new beginning: an opportunity to do things you have always fancied doing. I now see how restricting work can be, but we all have to work to live / build up enough pension to live without working later in life. My new plan is to study for a History degree, and maybe later do a PhD in History. [I am a person who thrives on deadlines. I also thrive with having ambitious goals] I would recommend Janet to anyone who is at a cross roads in life, and struggling with difficult decisions.
