Are you feeling stuck or lost, aimless or unsure?

Are you yearning for more?

>>>  More… Clarity, Energy, Hope, Direction, Meaning?  <<<

What if you could…

  • Stop living in the past and feel hopeful about the future?
  • Take charge of your life instead of letting life happen to you?
  • Know exactly why you’re here now and what you’re meant to do next?
  • Own your value and contribution at this stage of your life?
  • Wake up every morning excited to face the day?
  • Show up with passion and confidence?

This is purpose.

And the research is clear: Having a purpose helps us live longer, healthier, more fulfilled lives.


Maybe you’re wondering…

How can I find my own unique reason for being? My own purpose?

For most of us, purpose won’t just fall into our laps—we’ll have to seek it out.


That’s where the “Discover Your Purpose” program comes in.

Like many of my clients, you may be in the midst of a difficult transition—a job loss or career change, a breakup or divorce, an empty nest or geographic move, recovery from an illness or the death of a loved one… Or you may simply feel unhappy or bored with your life. You may wonder, “what’s next for me?” That’s exactly why I created the “Discover Your Purpose” program.

>>> For those searching for meaning, tired of letting life happen to them,
and ready to create their future. <<<


I recently left a job at a foundation with a great mission, but where I struggled with the owner. I felt lost and didn’t know what to do next or what I really enjoyed anymore. I was happy to find Helene’s “Discover Your Purpose” group program. It was very well organized, with each week building on the last, and clear deadlines that allowed me not to overthink everything. Helene created a safe and encouraging environment where group members could support each other on our journeys of discovery. I particularly enjoyed learning the strengths that others see and appreciate in me and have gained new confidence and direction as I look to apply my purpose to my life. – Laurie Israel-Cubell

The “Discover Your Purpose” program is for you if:

  • You want a step-by-step method to identify your life’s purpose—how you’re meant to showcase your gifts in the world.
  • You are ready to put yourself first and eager to invest in a couple of hours of “homework” each week, knowing it will challenge you at times (because that’s how we grow!).
  • You enjoy the support and accountability that come with working toward a goal in the company of other like-minded souls.

If you’re feeling lost, I can relate.

I went through a difficult transition myself as my twin daughters were ready to leave for college and I felt I was losing my purpose, which had been rooted in my identity as a mother. But how would I “find” my new purpose? I struggled through a lot fear and anxiety before I was able to discover my purpose and put it into action by becoming a life coach.

Does discovering your purpose have to be a struggle? NO!

I knew there had to be a more thoughtful and standardized way to help someone discover their purpose. (After all, I’ve simplified overwhelming questions and goals into clear, methodical processes for as long as I can remember. That’s one of my superpowers—what’s yours? You’ll find out through this program!)

How did I develop my purpose program? I studied everything I could on the subject, developed my own step-by-step process using proven tools, then tested and refined this process based on my clients’ feedback, working both with individuals and in groups.

What is it worth to you to discover your purpose in life?

To wake up every day knowing why you’re here and what you have to contribute.


Since pausing my full-time career to care for elderly parents, I found I was doing meaningful work but began feeling aimless professionally. In my 50s I wanted to become more deliberate about how I spend my energy and pursue income. But where to start? I’d met Hélène in a separate setting and suspected that a program curated under her watchful eye would be packed with insight and meaning. I was right. Hélène’s easy approach and careful guidance allow each participant to explore, discover, and experience epiphanies at her own pace. Her effective program culminates in a focused one-on-one session. During ours, Hélène was instrumental in helping me form a purpose statement that connects my many interests. She offered incisive ideas along with gentle support. It’s like talking to a friend who sees your best self. Now I understand how my gifts are alive and well in the work I currently do and the caregiving I provide. I also feel renewed excitement about what I have to offer and where I might take that professionally. It’s like I harbor a secret that brings me joy. And I can infuse that into everything I do. – Rebekka James, Ceremonies by Rebekka

I had recently resigned from my position in education and had moved back to the US after being abroad for 7 years. My son had just left for university at the same time and I was feeling pretty lost. After completing Helene’s 6-week “Discover Your Purpose” group program, I have solidified a well-articulated purpose that aligns with my values. I am more hopeful and more connected to myself and others. If you are looking for a source of positive and constructive feedback on your journey to discover and define your life’s purpose, Helene’s well-organized and personalized program is just the fit. It is structured in a way that is user friendly, supportive, and based in research. I greatly appreciated this experience and am excited to live my purpose in meaningful ways. Thank you Hélène! – Melissa Kay

This program uses proven assessments, reflection questions, and tracking tools to lead us toward self-awareness and clarity.

When you invest in the Discover Your Purpose group program, you invest in yourself.

  • You ask for the support you need to show you the way forward and to hold you up when you stumble.
  • You make yourself accountable with a clear structure and deadlines.
  • You share the journey with a like-minded group of engaged purpose seekers. In other words, you set yourself up for success.

When I joined the “Discover Your Purpose” group program, I was feeling like I had too many small fires burning and was wondering which one to add kindling to. The program felt very open and organic. It was a great way to understand myself better and learn how to work with that understanding going forward. I’m not a natural joiner to groups, but I felt very comfortable and supported by the other women. I also learned a good deal in listening to their stories and how the experience was unfolding for them. I was pleasantly surprised. I got so much out of this program and was able to make a powerful shift, coming out of it feeling peace, acceptance, and hope. Thank you, Hélène! – Sabrina Lloyd

When I signed up for the Discover Your Purpose program, I was working part time, my youngest child was in college, and my oldest was moving out with her boyfriend. I was feeling a need for more direction and clarity of purpose. Hélène’s approach is simply magnificent. She guided our group through a logical, well developed, and detailed process, nurturing each participant while challenging us too. Her leadership and insights complemented the program materials and exercises. She shared a wealth of resources, both personally and professionally, to help each participant fully engage and learn about herself and her potential. The ability to interact in a group via Zoom was also a vital part of the program, enabling us to benefit from each other’s journeys and insights. I’m now refining my purpose statement and looking forward to living it each day.  – Susie Julison
