Client: Heidi, Cape Town

(Cape Town, Western Cape)
I am in my late 30's. I am happily married, with children I adore, and I just found work again after more than a year of unemployment, which I am so grateful for. (I was retrenched at my last job because of the economic state the country is in.)
The thing is, I am almost 40, and due to different setbacks, I have no assets, no savings, my health is deteriorating and I am finding it harder and harder to focus and find motivation. Making ends meet is a daily battle. I have no recreation time, and I never get enough sleep - yet it never seems like I get anything done.
I used to be the one motivating others, but lately I am the one that desperately needs motivation. I have (had...?) big dreams, and always thought that nothing was impossible... Lately it seems like a silly childhood dream.
I live my days worrying about the future. I get many great ideas, but lack the confidence and motivation needed to implement them, and I hardly ever finish what I start. Basically, my life is a mess.
I am looking for a life coach that can help me get my focus and motivation back. I struggle with procrastination and time management, and need help getting back my earlier drive. Being more focused would definitely be a plus.
