Dr Denise Taylor

Elder, Adventurer, Vision Quest Guide, Award Winning Coach and Author. I guide, I inspire, I coach

I was born in 1957 but age is just a number. Few of us will have a conventional retirement, loving (and living) life is much more fun.

I work with people with the energy and passion to want more, to feel fulfilled and to have the life they want. It doesn’t have to be a traditional path. You could plan for a life without paid work, whatever works best for you. And no choice is forever, we can change at any time.

Now I’m Dr Taylor, I’m seen as an expert in the field of meaningful ageing and life after full time work. I can work with you to move through a transition and into a satisfying and  fulfilling life.
