50 Things to Help
When Life Changes

Contemplative & Nature-Based Teachings
for Navigating Life Transitions

“This books is written with heart and soul from deep experience.” - review on Amazon

The end of a relationship, death, illness, financial or employment loss are all events that can turn life as we know it upside down. Somewhere in all this we need to find ways to care for ourselves, build resilience, and care for others too.

My hope is that this book will help you find a place of calm in the midst of things. Whether you are a family member, a friend, a work colleague, a health professional, doula, neighbour, or the person going through changes themselves, my hope is that you find things in these pages to help you navigate these times with compassion and an even deeper understanding of the things that make the connections to those we love so treasured and sacred.

"A little gem of a book"

“I love it! It’s so eclectic and so practical.”

“A beautiful accomplishment”

“So much wisdom in its simplicity”

"Beautiful book Georgina. I keep it next to my computer and as a daily ritual of self care to myself open it at a random page and each time I have done this in the past week the words on the page are exactly what Im needing to hear in that moment. I was drawn to the title because of the life changes I am experiencing as I head into my 50s and the peri menopause and soon to be menopause stages of my life."

"Keep doing the work you are doing Georgina, it is very precious" - Thomas Moore, author Care of the Soul

About Georgina

I help people nurture their emotional, physical, creative and spiritual needs and explore the things that make their soul sing.

I am an ecotherapist, life transition guide, artist and author, and founder of the Archeus Apothecary. I help people nurture their emotional, physical, creative and spiritual needs. My practice is deeply rooted in our connections to nature, and weaves together herbalism, compassionate and contemplative care, ecotherapy and spiritual accompaniment.  My aim is to help nurture the soul as we navigate life and all it puts in our path.

Over the past decade much of my work has focused on supporting people through life transitions including menopause, health and relationship changes, career changes, ageing and end of life.

I am inspired by the writings and healing philosophy of the 12th century mystic Hildegard of Bingen, the 15th Century Physician of the Soul, Marsilio Ficino and other spiritual teachers. My techniques have been used in midlife transitions, health changes, end of life care, bereavement and resilience after natural disasters.

My professional development includes training as a Sacred Passage Doula and Coach, IWH Menopause coach, herbalist, massage therapist, Reiki master, Four Winds Shamanic Energy Medicine graduate. I am a member of OBOD, the Climate Coaching Alliance, International End of Life Doula Association INELDA and International Coaching Federation ICF, and in July 2024 I graduate in spiritual accompaniment with the Onespirit Interfaith Foundation UK. Nature in all its myriad forms has been the greatest teacher of all.

Before founding Archeus in 2013, I worked for the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, and on global ecological issues at the UN Environment Programme. Prior to that I worked in the arts and media. I live in New Zealand with my husband and our much loved dog Bonnie.
