Hello there,

I have spent so much of my life feeling like I could have achieved so much more if only I had made the right choices. I thought that those choices had sealed my fate and that there was nothing I could do to change things. I felt like I was a failure.

Then I met someone who believed in me. She saw my true potential and encouraged me to dig deep into myself and discover what it was I actually wanted in life.

She challenged my perceptions about who I was and who I could be and made me realise that it is never too late to unlock your hidden potential. Later as I started reading about the theories of Carl Jung, I recognized that midlife is exactly the right time to do this.

So, I did.

Making choices
Making choices

I’m not saying it is a quick and easy process, or that I now have everything sussed out.

Of course, I haven’t! Anyone who tells you there is a shortcut doesn’t know what they are talking about.

But, I have made a start.

I am learning more and more about myself and what I need.

I have started to forgive myself for my mistakes and can see that if it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be the person I am now.

And I am slowly letting go of my anger and resentment toward the people who have hurt me.

I realise that there are no right or wrong choices. Everything you do has made you the person you are today

I am passionate about helping women learn to balance their inner and outer worlds as they explore the process of ageing.

We must learn to stop being swayed by what society, our family or our peers want us to be and become who we truly are. This way we can learn to love ourselves and find a sense of peace and harmony in the world.

I am so grateful for the journey I have been on (and am still travelling) and to all the women who have helped and supported me along the way. I didn’t always appreciate them at the time so I thank them for their patience and understanding.

I am delighted to invite you to let me help you take the next step to become your true authentic self and fulfilling your potential.

Why buy the Working with your Archetypes course?

At the Ancient Wisdom of Women, I know that you are the kind of woman who is not prepared to settle for being mediocre when you know you and your life can be better.

To do that you need to be able to take control of your future and fully believe in yourself.

The problem is you feel you are being frivolous spending your precious time and money on ‘finding yourself’.  It is just not that important.

I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to explore who they really are, discover their true self and fulfil their potential.

I understand older women deserve the opportunity to find true meaning in life. That is why I created the Working with your Archetypes course.

Here is how it works.

Step 1.  You feel like you are in the middle of an identity crisis and are no longer sure who you are, so you buy the course.

Step 2.  You learn about the importance of archetypes in personal growth and start exploring how they show up in your life.

Step 3.  You begin to understand that it is possible to heal by working with your archetypes.

 What will you get?

This unique course is aimed specifically at women in the second half of life and wondering what it means to be an older woman.

Section 2 – Four Major Archetypes

Module 1 – The Innocent

Discover how to keep the innocence and wonder of the child without being naïve and getting disillusioned with the world. Stay grounded while still able to draw on your imagination and creativity. Learn how to take responsibility for your actions instead of blaming others. Gracefully accept you will not always get your own way rather than sulking or throwing tantrums.​

Module 2 – The Heroine

Unlock the power of the heroine and learn to be brave and courageous without becoming arrogant or self-important. Learn that true heroism is about selflessness and being able to put others first. Realise that the heroine archetype is just another part of our personality we can draw on when needed rather than who we should be.

Module 3 – The Queen

Embrace the Queen archetype and learn how to fully embody true feminine energy.  She will show you how to lead with confidence and compassion without an unhealthy attachment to power. Learn how to inspire loyalty and love but still have strong boundaries. See how grace, charm, wisdom and strength of will can change the world.

Module 4 – The Magician

Tap into the power of the Magician to balance your masculine and feminine energies. She helps you to face your fears so that you can make your dreams a reality. Rejoice in your individuality, and don’t be limited by other people’s ideas of who you are. Find out how this archetype can help you cope with changes to transform your life.

Module 5 – The Wise Woman

Understand that true wisdom is not just about reading books but also about living and learning from real life. Learn that knowledge must be used and passed, not hoarded as if it were finite. Listen to other points of view even if you disagree with them without preaching or righteousness. Realise that no one is perfect and we all make mistakes.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?

The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course – you decide when you start and when you finish.

How long do I have access to the course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.

What if I am unhappy with the course?

We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.

How long does the course take to complete?

The course is self-study so it is up to you how long you take to complete it. It all depends on how long you want to spend on each module.

Do I have to be over 50 to take this course?

No. The process can be taken at any time in life. I have suggested this age as it is a time that women usually experience feelings of uncertainty in their life.

I am not sure I can finish the course in 5 weeks, does it matter?

These things take time. You can’t do it overnight. You can take as long as you like to complete the course. 5 weeks is just a suggestion.

I am worried that the course is too academic. Is it very technical and full of mumbo jumbo?

The course is aimed at people who have no background in psychology or idea of Jungian theories. It does contain some technical terms but these are all explained. It is a beginner’s course designed to let you dip your toes in and see if it is for you.

What if I find the process really hard and cannot complete it?

It will be hard for everyone in some ways. Facing your dark side and looking for ways to be a better person can be difficult. You can take things as far as you feel comfortable. Everyone is different, some people have had tough lives and will need time to process this. By starting this course you are one of the 5% of the population even trying and that makes you special.

Why are we only looking at a few archetypes, what about the others?

This is a short introductory course designed for beginners. I have chosen the ones I think are most important to look at first so you don’t get overwhelmed. If you want to take this further I will be creating another course with more archetypes later.

Do I need to do or buy anything else to take this course?

All you need is some time, a pen, the worksheets and a quiet space to think. I am including a free Transformational Journal with this course which you can use as well if you like.

Don’t settle for being mediocre when you can be so much more

There is another way to live without unconsciously accepting what society tells you to be.

It is ok to be curious about who you truly are.
