For Women 40+
Seeking Clarity and Direction

Do you want to wake up each morning to

a life full of joy and meaning?

Are you ready to figure out your next chapter

with renewed energy, clarity, and direction?

Are you ready to prioritize you and your dreams,

for a change?

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.

Discover Your Purpose 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.

Take the DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE class now!

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 Hélène’s Discover Your Purpose class. It was very well organized, with each week building on the last, and clear deadlines that allowed me not to overthink everything. Hélène 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.

Get started on the


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. 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 Discover Your Purpose class, 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 class 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 started Discover Your Purpose, I was feeling like I had too many small fires burning and was wondering which one to add kindling to. The class 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 took the Discover Your Purpose class, 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 guides us through a logical, well developed, and detailed process. 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.

You have a choice.

You can keep living by default

OR you can take a bold step into a life of purpose.

Which will you choose?

I’m ready to take the DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE class now!

Hi, I’m Hélène!

I’m the Midlife Mentor with a passion for facilitating personal development. Through my THRIVE community, I help introspective, curious, action-oriented women 40+ deepen their journeys of self-discovery and growth—and create their next chapter with courage and intention.

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!

How can I learn more about the THRIVE membership?

Get all the details about the THRIVE membership by clicking here

Are this class and membership only open to women in midlife and beyond?

Yes, this class and the THRIVE membership are only for people who identify as women and are 40 years or older. Those are the women I serve!

How do we access the class materials?

This class is available inside the THRIVE membership portal. There, you’ll access the video lessons and assignments, always on-demand, for you to review and complete on your own timetable.

I'm not really technical. Will I run into isues?

No worries! We have kept the membership portal and class materials super simple and easy to navigate. If you ever run into trouble with the portal, downloads, 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 THRIVE members in our monthly live group coaching. 
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!

How many hours will I need to invest every week?

That is entirely up to you! The class is meant to be completed in 6 weeks (2-3 hours a week), but you can take as long as you want. Or stop and start as neeeded. You have access to all the class videos and asssignments on demand, as long as you remain a member in good standing.

Are my personal details private when joining the class?

Absolutely! We keep your personal information totally private and never sell your data. 

Can I do this class 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! And remember, we’ve got monthly group coaching for live support. And you can always request 1-on-1 coaching (at an extra fee).

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 class is the right fit for you.

How do I pronounce your first name, Hélène?

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!

DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE is now only available

inside the THRIVE membership!

While Discover Your Purpose used to be a standalone program costing $997 for 6 weeks, you can now have access to this class, and a whole lot more, inside the THRIVE membership.
