The transition through perimenopause, menopause and beyond can feel overwhelming at times. Life can unexpectedly and suddenly feel very challenging, with symptoms of anxiety, worry, poor sleep, fatigue, aches & pains, brain fog, hot flushes and a myriad of other possible physical and emotional symptoms.

I regularly hear women say,"I just don't recognise myself anymore"

* * *
Anxiety-related symptoms can often rear their ugly head even before you've realised that you have entered perimenopause; sometimes even before any physical symptoms show up.

Driving anxiety, social anxiety, loss of confidence and self-esteem, anger, tearfulness, lack of motivation, low mood, loss of libido are all common.
Life can simply just feel very flat.

* * *
Quite often these symptoms can also coincide with the ongoing challenges of family life; women can find themselves sandwiched between caring for their children and teenagers transitioning into adult life and dealing with concerns of ageing parents. All whilst trying to maintain personal relationships and manage work commitments.

Our experience is individual, but what can unite us is our support.

51% of the population of the world will go through the changes of menopause, that’s for certain, but what isn’t certain is what that will look like for YOU as an individual. It certainly doesn’t mean it has to be a journey of suffering in silence.

* * *
It's a sad fact that many women stoically soldier on, suffering in silence until they run out of steam, often resulting in leaving work, not joining in with social activities and seeing friends less. They can be left feeling unhappy, alone and exhausted.

It doesn't have to be this way, help is available.

By gaining a better understanding of the facts around the neuroscience, physiology, mindset and hormones involved, you can take back control of your mind and body.

Yes, you CAN learn to embrace this next phase of your amazing life!

In 6 weeks you can...

  • Gain a better understanding of the key role hormones play in how we think, feel and behave.
  • Learn a bit more about the symptoms of menopause, how they affect us and most importantly how we can make things better.
  • Learn useful tips and strategies to cope with and even eliminate some of the symptoms you may be suffering with.
  • Reduce menopausal anxiety and worry
  • Explore food, diet and nutrition options for better physical health
  • Improve sleep patterns
  • Find personal well-being and lifestyle solutions to everyday issues
  • Shift perspective to focus your energy on feeling good again

There have been some good campaigns recently to help raise awareness of menopause and make the offer of HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) treatments more accessible.

Although HRT may relieve some symptoms, by helping to balance our hormones, it isn't a magic fix-all and some women simply cannot or do not wish to take HRT.

Many women find their symptoms do improve by taking HRT, but not all. Some find that despite being on HRT they still struggle with anxiety issues and poor sleep.

* * *
The Menopause in Mind course takes a holistic approach, that reflects our individual health needs, symptoms, circumstances and personal journeys through this phase.

Whether you are using HRT treatments or not, in 6 weeks you can learn how to help reduce your levels of cortisol (stress hormone) and improve your levels of serotonin and other feel-good transmitters.

Together we will explore what menopause means to us and how we can better manage and cope with this new, unfamiliar and sometimes confusing experience.

The UK Government report into Menopause and the Workplace, published July 2022, reported that 69% of respondents suffered with menopause-related anxiety or depression. Difficulty sleeping affected 81% with 75% suffering memory or concentration problems.
A 2019 survey conducted by the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) found that three in five menopausal women were negatively affected at work and that almost 900,000 women in the U.K. left their jobs because of menopausal symptoms.
A recent study by a research team at the ‘Menopause Experts Group’ found that the highest rates of suicide in women is for those aged 45-54 (the average age of experiencing menopause transition), with 7 deaths per 100,000 females.
A survey conducted by the National Menopause Foundation, found that 64 percent of women said the symptoms they experienced with menopause had interfered with their quality of life. With 60% worried about ageing.
Don't continue to suffer alone.
The Menopause in Mind course offers the opportunity to learn alongside women who understand what you are going through. Women who can lift you up and support you, as we all move forwards together in a more positive way.
