Our expert says:
I flatly refuse to recognizwe that the bogus species of "Life Coach" has any validity and use whatever. They have no proper training to render them competent to deal with any psych illness, nor even common life problems. Its a fad. Now, a specialist psychiatrist or psychologist or fully trained counsellor may well be able to help, if she can be persuaded to acept the posibility of such help. The diagnosis ( depression ? Still present, or maybe a different diagnosis now ) needs to be reconsidered, and its treatment.
She sounds like the sort of person who, unless they plan well for their future, including ways to keep usefully busy after retirement, can react disasterously to retirement. Counselling / therapy ( FAMSA and the Anxiety/Depression Support Group ) can help identify a suitable person --- for many good reasons we cannot recoomend individual shrinks on this forum. She can make more rational plans for the house, either finding a place more manageable for her, or dividing it so she can share it with others ; she can become involved in charities / NGOs as a volunteer to keep busy and to remain feeling useful, and so on
