Emotional well-being during Menopause
The menopause throws a lot of challenges at us. The most well know challenge is the ever inconvenient and unpleasant hot flush. Many of us have them but not everybody, and not in the same severity. But did you know that there more than 150 physical and emotional symptoms of (peri)menopause?! Especially the emotional symptoms are often overlooked or misunderstood. Increased anxiety, irritability, difficulty concentrating, lacking motivation, depression are all emotional symptoms that can creep up on us when we move into perimenopause in our 40s or sometimes even 30s. But there is no need to suffer on your own. Talking about your symptoms is an important first step!
How it works
In our sessions we will discover emotional symptoms of (peri)menopause and teach techniques that can help you manage them. (Some women even see an improvement in the physical symptoms of menopause if they are better at managing the emotional symptoms, but this is not a guarantee.) Techniques used in our group coaching are based on the ACT theory by Dr Steven Hayes and include techniques to manage unpleasant thoughts and feelings, focussing on what matters to unlock your future and mindfulness.

WE ARE NOT DOCTORS!
We do not treat symptoms of menopause. We teach techniques that can help you manage its symptoms. It works for many women but may not work for you.

- don’t ever stop any medication without consulting your GP
What is Menopause?
“Menopause is the transitional period in a woman’s life when her ovaries start producing less of the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone. Menopause is declared when a woman ceases to have a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months, marking the end of her reproductive years. A woman who has her ovaries surgically removed immediately enters menopause.
Natural menopause is a gradual process, beginning with perimenopause, or premenopause, usually starting in a woman’s 40s or even 30s. Perimenopause can last up to 10 years, as the menstrual cycle tapers off and menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings may begin.
Other physical and psychological changes that may occur throughout menopause and the postmenopausal years include irregular heartbeat, headaches, insomnia, irritability, depression, and anxiety, along with cognitive symptoms like forgetfulness. Menopause is also associated with problems such as vaginal dryness, painful sexual intercourse, urine leakage, and joint pain.”
