With Dr Joanne Hobson – MBBS, DRCOG, FRSH. A registered British Menopause Society (BMS) Menopause Specialist, BMS Menopause Trainer and Member of Institute of Psychosexual Medicine.

Suitable for non-medical professionals (coaches, therapists, stylists) with a special interest in women’s health and well-being. Menopause matters to your clients, so it makes sense for it to matter to you too.

“Menopause is a mind, body affair, and therefore the needs must be addressed from a whole person perspective.” – Dr J Hobson

We passionately believe that every woman should be enabled with relevant and meaningful knowledge about their hormone highway in order to make informed health-care choices. Every woman deserves to feel their best and love the life they live.

We know from experience accessing clear concise information about hormones from periods to perimenopause is far from straightforward. A recent survey showed that women are unlikely to reach out to their healthcare professional about menopausal symptoms and feel it’s just something they need to ‘get through’ on their own. That is certainly not true and you can’t manage what you don’t understand. There are many constructive steps you can take to build a great menopause tool kit and allow you to feel empowered by the experience.

Menopause is not optional but how you navigate the hormone highway is.  

There is currently no compulsory education with regards to personal hormonal health, nor provision made to share the essential best-practice health benefits related to lifestyle choices, nutrition and movement. Where can women receive the support they need? How can we deliver this essential lifetime knowledge and provide easy access to evidence based information?

At the Menopause Directory & School we have designed a special program of learning for key wellness professionals who work with women. Delivered live, with extra resources available after class, plus a support group, this is the first of its kind for those who already have a strong client focused role.

Making sense of Menopause is an innovative seminar that will enable those working with women on a daily basis to create a positive environment for their clients around the topic of perimenopause and beyond. (Book here)

  • The menopause continuum can be a very confusing space.
  • Knowing which pathway to go down can be full of uncertainty.

The world needs menopause-aware therapists and coaches to mediate and mentor those who are actively seeking guidance.

We are very excited to announce that our guest lecturer will be Menopause and Psychosexual Medicine Specialist, Dr Joanne Hobson – MBBS, DRCOG, FRSH. Member of British Menopause Society, Membership of Institute of Psychosexual Medicine.

Menopause is an inevitable part of a woman’s life. Our biology dictates that our periods begin at puberty and stop at menopause. How our journey unfolds is as unique as we are. Menopause is not complicated in real terms, yet the confusing conversations taking place would have you believe otherwise.

What can you expect to learn?

During this seminar we will outline the facts of menopause in relevant and meaningful terms with no confusing jargon. We will also bust the myths and explain some straightforward, holistic solutions to symptom relief. As we paint the bigger picture surrounding hormonal decline you’ll discover how this midlife shift can have side-effects and consequences. Left to wander around without a compass the hormone highway can become a mentally challenging place. Help your clients step onto a positive pathway to peri-menopause and beyond. (Book here)

Topics included, but not exclusive to are:

  • Glossary of terms – an a-z of the reproductive years, including the difference between perimenopause and menopause
  • The impact of hormonal decline – symptoms and consequences
  • When do symptoms start? – is there a menopausal blue print?
  • Oestrogen(s) and their role in the female body
  • The positive psychological influences that come out of menopause.
  • What is a supportive environment during midlife and how to create one?
  • The role of wellness professionals in the menopause conversation
  • How to personalise sessions for female clients experiencing hormonal shifts.

We’ll also provide suggestions on how you can take your services to the next level with thoughtful service add-ons, signposting ideas and ways to show your clients that a whole person approach is hugely beneficial to their well-being.

Women are now spending a third of their lifespan menopausal. Managing menopause transition in an effective way should be part of our everyday healthcare, just like brushing your teeth.

We would love to have you join us on 7th May for our inaugural  LIVE event**. Together we can ease the transition from menstruation to menopause and enable women to thrive in powerful ways, by learning about themselves so they can care for themselves.
