For Women 40+
Seeking Clarity and Direction
If you are like most people, your goal in life is to be happy. And contrary to what some believe, money is NOT the key to happiness.
So what is? Research shows that one of the biggest factors to increase happiness is living a life of purpose.
The Discover Your Purpose Program is designed for anyone in the midst of a transition—a job loss, career change, a breakup or divorce, an empty nest, geographic move, recovery from an illness, death of a loved one, or anyone who is simply feeling unhappy or lost in life.
If you are lying awake at night wondering “What’s next for me?” Why am I here? What am I meant to do on this earth?”
Trust me…you are not alone! And this is the perfect place for you to connect with other purpose-seekers to discover those answers.
I get it, because I’ve been there.
When I was turning 50 and my twin daughters were about to leave home, I felt lost and anxious. My whole identity had been wrapped up in my role as a mother. Without that, who was I? What was I supposed to do? Did I have anything of value to offer the world?
As I reached out to other women, I learned that this feeling of loss and uncertainty is common in midlife, a time of challenges and transitions for many of us. What are YOUR challenges? Maybe it’s an empty nest, like me, or maybe it’s something else… A job loss or career change, a stale relationship or recent divorce, a geographic move and loss of community, menopausal or other difficult health symptoms, the death of parents or other loved ones…
Or maybe it’s not so specific. Maybe you feel that vague midlife malaise. You can’t quite put your finger on why, but you know you’re not happy. You know there’s got to be more in this life for you.
When women come to me with these midlife frustrations, I encourage them to embrace this time of life. Because…
In midlife, it’s YOUR TURN.
Your turn to decide what matters most to you, today.
Your turn to own your gifts and your value.
Your turn to discover your interests and passions.
In short, it’s YOUR TURN
to create the life you want—and deserve.

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.

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.
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!

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!
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.

Hi, I’m Hélène!
I coach women who are struggling in their 40s and beyond—who wonder if their best years are behind them and what’s next for them. I show them how to put themselves first, reclaim their identity, figure out what’s next, and feel excited about their future.
I created and refined the Discover Your Purpose program over the last several years in order to help women do just that. It is my absolute joy and privilege to take women through this journey and I hope you’ll join our next group!
Frequently Asked Questions
Is this program only open to women in midlife and beyond?
Yes, this program is only for people who identify as women and are 40 years or older. Those are the women I serve!
How do we access the course materials?
We have a dedicated online portal for this program, where you’ll access the video lessons, assignments, calendar, and Zoom session recordings.
After you sign up, you receive an email to the address you used when registering that will provide you with your username and password and the login information.
You will use that information to sign in at https://helenetstelian.com and clicking on the DYP Login. After you have logged in, you will be immediately redirected to the Discover Your Purpose course where you will find videos and materials to download.
I'm not really technical. Will I run into isues?
No worries! We have kept the program portal super simple and easy to navigate. If you ever run into trouble with the portal, Facebook group, Zoom sessions, emails, or anything else, please reach out to our support team and we’ll help you troubleshoot.
I'm not on Facebook. Can I benefit without it?
Absolutely! If you’d rather not use Facebook, you may connect with the other Discover Your Purpose participants in our weekly Zooms and you might want to have an accountability partner.
Of course, you’ll be missing out on the daily interaction in the Facebook group, which would be a shame. You can always set up a Facebook profile just for this group without using the rest of Facebook. Our support team can show you how!
When and where will we meet?
Weekly lessons (videos and assignments) will be released each Saturday inside our dedicated Discover Your Purpose program portal.
We will meet live on Zoom mid-week each week. This is where I’ll coach you through any questions or obstacles you’re coming across as you complete your weekly assignments. We’ll also get to know each other and have a laugh or two! (And if you can’t make it to some of these sessions live, not to worry, you can submit any questions in advance and I’ll answer them during the session. Then you can watch the session recording at your leisure.)
You’ll be invited to schedule your 60-minute private session with me after the week 6 lesson has been released. I’ll help you finalize your purpose statement!
And of course, you’ll be able to connect with me and the other group participants anytime inside our private Facebook group. I’m in there multiple times a day to answer questions and give encouragement!
What if I can't join the Zoom sessions live?
If you can’t make it to some of these sessions live, not to worry, you can submit any questions in advance and I’ll answer them during the session. Then you can watch the session recording at your leisure.
How many hours will I need to invest every week?
Each Saturday, I will unveil a new video lesson in our private portal. Then you’ll be asked to download a few exercises to complete during the week. We will meet as a group in a weekly 90-minute Zoom. And you’ll want to engage daily in our Facebook group. You can also choose to work with a partner in the program to keep you on track and accountable. So count on 2 to 3 hours per week.
How much individual attention can I expect?
A lot! I am in our private Facebook group all the time and respond to every single question, usually the same day. I also give you feedback and encouragement on your work-in-progress if you choose to post it in the group.
Our Zoom calls are another great time to get private attention as I welcome each attendee to share any obstacles or concerns that are coming up for her—and I do some on-the-spot coaching through these.
And of course your private 1-on-1 coaching session is where I spend 60 dedicated minutes with you—and where it all comes together!
What does being an accountability partner entail and how do partners get assigned?
If you tend to procrastinate, thrive on deadlines, or would enjoy taking this journey with another participant, you’ll want to take advantage of the program’s accountability partner feature.
You and your partner will decide how you prefer to keep each other on track. Some choose to do daily check-ins over text, others to report on their progress weekly via email, and others to schedule regular phone calls or video sessions. It’s up to you!
To assign partners, we ask you to raise your hand if you’re interested and we match partners based on your time zone. Of course, if you have formed a connection with someone in the program, you may choose to message her via our Facebook group and ask her to become your accountability partner.
Are my personal details private when joining the program?
Absolutely! We keep your personal information totally private and never sell your data.
When will you run the next Discover Your Purpose program?
I only run this program twice a year and anticipate running this again in the spring of 2022.
Can I do this program on a 1-on-1 basis with you?
I started out by offering the Discover Your Purpose program individually but when I saw the power of running it in groups, I was sold and haven’t gone back! I’ve had clients who are more introverted and less likely to join a group tell me they’re glad they did and got so much more out of it by sharing the experience with other purpose seekers. And to be honest, the price would be significantly higher for me to work with you 1-on-1, so go ahead and take the leap. Join our group!
I still have questions. How can I reach you?
Email me at Team@HeleneTStelian.com and I’ll reply promptly. I’m also happy to jump on a call with you to help you decide if this program is the right fit for you.
How do I pronounce your first name?
Unless you took French growing up, you may never have seen my first name, Hélène. I was raised in Paris and went to French schools so the pronunciation stuck. I love it but it’s a bit of a pain when meeting new people!
So I’ll make it simple. Say the two letters L and N in a row, with the emphasis on the N.
L – N
But don’t worry, I’ve heard it all and won’t take offense if you don’t pronounce it right!
