What makes Menopause Mind Coaching different?
When we work together on a one-to-one basis you will experience a nurturing, empowering, multi-faceted, step by step approach to change.
The work we do together will combine effective therapeutic interventions, coaching and practical steps with a consistent focus on creating balance and strengthening your phenomenally powerful mind-body connection.
The occurrence and intensity of menopausal problems and symptoms are frequently the results of several internal and external influences all impacting together and on one another, so this is what we work with, creating positive change wherever that change is needed.
It is imperative, for the best possible outcome for us to consider every aspect of your menopausal transition experience so you can step forward and embrace a life you love.

What is the difference between perimenopause, menopause, and post-menopause?
The process of menopausal transition happens slowly over three stages:
Perimenopause. Your menstrual cycle may become irregular, heavier lighter, shorter, or more prolonged. You might start to notice some symptoms such as itchy skin, headaches, hot flushes, disturbed sleep, mood swings and more (see list of symptoms in the FAQ’s).
Some women experience extreme symptoms, some very mild and some women are unaware of any change apart from their periods.
Most women hit this stage around age 45. Some women will go into early menopause, some will have induced menopause or surgical menopause due to surgery or treatment of a disease or illness.
Menopause This is one day only, the day when you have gone 12 months without a period. The term menopause is commonly used to describe the whole transitional process of peri-menopause through to post-menopause.
Post-menopause. This is the time after menopause. Women can continue to experience symptoms during post-menopausal years. If you have any vaginal bleeding at all during this stage, it is essential that you contact your G.P.
I don’t know if I am in peri-menopause, do I need a diagnosis?
Peri-menopause is usually diagnosed through history taking of changes to your periods and the symptoms you are experiencing.
Due to the fluctuations in hormone levels a one-off blood test is an unreliable way to confirm whether or not you are in perimenopause.
If you visit your G.P with symptoms they will usually request a blood test to rule out other health issues such as thyroid function, blood sugars, kidney function, liver function and more.
It is a good idea to keep a record of what you are experiencing and take this with you to your health provider/consultation appointment.
If you choose to work with me, I will ask you to rate the severity of your identified symptoms and problems, on a scale of 0 (non-existent) to 10 (completely debilitating) over a period of time.
If you are over 45 and experiencing symptoms (or not) it is highly likely that you are in peri-menopause.
What are the symptoms of Menopausal Transition?
Menopausal transition is a term used to describe the time when women move from perimenopause to menopause to post-menopause.
As you read the menopause symptoms list what I would love is for you to put aside any fear or trepidation (I know this list has evoked fear and worry in many) and instead read this list with curiosity and intrigue.
Because whatever your experience is, or is to be, every single woman is beautifully unique and so will experience their own transition through menopause in their own individual way.
Whether you are experiencing a few or many of these symptoms, whether they are mild or currently debilitating, know there is help at hand and there are many things you can do to create more balance and harmony in your mind, body, and life, leaving you free to live your best life on your terms.
This list includes just some of the possible symptoms.
In my mission to ditch the fear I have renamed the menopause symptom list and called it:

ONE OF THE KEY SYMPTOMS OF MENOPAUSE
The time in a woman’s life where her mind and body demand that: she takes care of herself, reduces her stress load, stops carrying everyone else’s burdens, learns to say no, ditches the unwarranted guilt, puts personal boundaries in place, steps away from the chaos and seeks out the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual balance. A time when a woman reflects upon her life gone versus her life left and says “it’s my time”
