menopause made easy
Speak to a Menopause Doula
Join the dots from puberty to perimenopause with my easy to follow stepping-stone system. My role is to create a supportive environment so you feel confident in choosing your own hormonal healthcare pathway. During this gentle, guided conversation you will be able to build a clearer, uncomplicated picture of where you are on the journey from menstruation to menopause. This knowledge and support will not only empower you today, but tomorrow, and the rest of your life.
knowledge & conversation
We each have a different story
“You can’t manage what you don’t understand.” I know, because I’ve been there too. Until I reached the foothills of perimenopause myself, I had no idea that the journey I was about to embark on was full of twists and turns, without a compass or map in sight. My mentor Dr Joanne Hobson, often says, “menopause is not complicated”, but when it dawns on you that yes, this is perimenopause, faced with a complex bundle of choices, it’s quite often overwhelming. As a Menopause Doula, I love to help you unravel your story, map out your menopause and set you off on your journey with new skills, still knowing that you can ask for further guidance as and when you need it.
guidance and support
Your menopause, your journey
The story of menopause starts with the story of menstruation. Currently, we learn very little about how to manage either. Even with training in Applied Biology and Teaching I was still surprised to find my healthy lifestyle was not enough to ‘get me through’ menopause and out the other side. I was full of uncertainty and spent several years with little idea of knowing if what I was doing would ‘fix’ the problem. Since then I have become a hormone researcher, menopause author and received one to one mentoring on menopause awareness from Dr Joanne Hobson. We are now developing a vision of menopause care for the future.
The doula’s goal, and role, is to help the client feel safe and comfortable, complementing the role of the healthcare professionals who provide the client’s medical care.
Menopause is not optional, neither is it linear. Sometimes you will be full of clarity and confidence, and others the predicable unpredictability will sit you down with a bump. An early intervention conversation with a Menopause Doula will enable you to not only navigate the transition period, but also optimise your long term health. Many people do not realise that the long term consequences of menopause are the far bigger picture than the symptoms alone.
During a guided, 60 minute conversation, you will be able to rest & digest, taking on board the guidance in your own time. I will provide access to a selection of videos, plus a work book, and I’m also happy to facilitate conversations with partners, friends and family to give you the whole person approach you deserve.
