Menopause

I am on a mission to help you, as a woman, to bust the distress of perimenopause; supporting you to find your power and purpose, to not settle for second best, but to focus on what you value most and achieve what you want out of life. To feel happy, confident and fulfilled, so that you have a spring in your step and joy in your heart, so you can be present with your family, enjoy time with friends and have a fulfilling career..

Do you think you might be experiencing perimenopause?

Have you come to that time in your life when you’re noticing changes? Do you feel trapped in a dark place with no way out? Do you feel like you are losing your mind and your sense of self?

Maybe you can relate to how Louise is feeling?

For generations, menopause (let alone perimenopause) wasn’t mentioned at school when we learned about periods and reproduction.
Your mother probably didn’t mention it either, but you may remember finding her hiding in the kitchen, secretively mopping the back of her neck!
Let me tell you, that this isn’t a time to fear, be worried or hide in the kitchen like your Mum did.

I believe it’s a time to embrace, feel empowered and prepare yourself for a future that is bright and fulfils your values and needs. It may take a little work to get there, but the journey can be healing and cathartic.

What are the different stages of menopause?

PREMENOPAUSE
The time in your life before any symptoms start to happen.

PERIMENOPAUSE
The time leading up to menopause, when hormones levels fluctuate and reduce and you start to experience symptoms.

MENOPAUSE
This is just ONE day in your life! It is when your periods have stopped for one year.

POSTMENOPAUSE
The time in your life after menopause.

It is likely that Menopause won’t even be on your radar until you start to experience some of the symptoms (due to your body’s natural decline in reproductive hormones); but the earlier you learn about what to expect, means you can be fully prepared and put actions in place to prevent issues from arising.

What are the symptoms?

There are 34 recognised symptoms of Perimenopause, but there are many others that are often reported. These symptoms can affect you physically and psychologically and they can change from one day to the next, or the same symptoms may remain for some time and then change.

It will all depend on your reproductive hormone levels, which can fluctuate massively on a daily basis and start to reduce over time. These include Oestrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone (which is not exclusive to men!).

Why is it important to understand the perimenopause transition?

  1. Education is power. It brings about awareness of self and arms you with information to make changes and to seek help.
  2. Perimenopause is a window of opportunity to maximise your wellbeing, for the post menopause period, when various risk factors increase. If you are starting to experience symptoms, they are a sign that you need to make some changes now.
  3. Preparation is key to a healthy and happy life.

I offer a complementary approach to treatment
I support Perimenopausal women to bust symptoms of hormonal distress; helping you to take control of your mind and body, so you can live life to the full again.
Complementary treatment approaches can be extremely valuable to help manage your symptoms through balancing your lifestyle factors.
Even if you decide to take Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), making changes to lifestyle factors are still vital to implement, to ensure you maximise your health and wellbeing for the longer term.
Everyone is different, so finding an approach that works for you and a practitioner that you can connect with, is the most important thing.

I spent years researching, trying out various therapies and then training in the ones that helped me, so I could help you painlessly and easily, saving you precious time, to get to the root of the problem.

For example:

  • Occupational Therapy to help with sleep, stress and fatigue management, pelvic health and coaching conversations
  • Aromatherapy to improve mood swings, stress or low libido
  • Massage to aid relaxation and reduce pain
  • Meditation to ease a racing mind and increase focus
  • Remedial hypnosis to experience freedom from trauma, unhelpful habits, low self esteem or even hot flushes.

I will marry together mind and body therapies, to ultimately create a safe space for you to share your inner thoughts and concerns, without any judgement, so you feel cared for and nurtured. It’s important to me, that you feel heard, are seen and are given a helping hand to maximise your wholeness as a woman.

The MOTH Therapies 7 pillars of focus include:

Stress management, Sleep, Nutrition, Movement, Pelvic health, People and Purpose.
