Menopause is so much more than hot flushes and night sweats.
Poorly understood for far too long, the menopause disrupts hormone balance. Hormones that are misunderstood and underestimated, when not in balance affect how women look, feel, think and behave. Shrouded in mystery and sometimes shame, peri-menopausal and menopausal women often carry on regardless, frequently suffering in silence until they run out of resilience often leaving work, not meeting friends feeling alone lost and exhausted.
The menopause transition can be a challenging experience, many women simply do not understand what is happening to them thinking they are going mad. This is where well-being professionals can play a key supporting role.
This one day workshop has been developed to provide well-being professionals with an overview of the physical and psychological issues of the menopause. We will explore various ways in which you can support your clients who are feeling overwhelmed by their symptoms and issues.
Subjects covered on the workshop include:
What is menopause?
When does menopause happen?
What are the symptoms of menopause?
What are the choices?

Research has shown that therapy combined with visualisations, stress reduction and confidence building can significantly improve a woman’s experience of her menopause.
The Workshop will guide you systematically through a unique ‘Embrace Programme’ and you will be able to equip your clients to let go of any fear and anxiety.
The day includes information to support clients with diet, nutrition and well-being lifestyle information. Scripts and intake forms to download and ways to encourage women to adapt to the changes naturally, efficiently and comfortably. to say “Yes, I am going to embrace my amazing life.”
The fact is menopause does happen to every woman. Clients can waste a lot of time in the mindset of “feeling sorry for myself because I’m menopausal”.
The aim of this workshop is to share how to focus energy on how to feel good again. To think of the menopause as a halfway point and all of the changes, not just the physical ones, will help shape the next 50 years of your clients life.
