Are you experiencing perimenopausal symptoms such as irregular periods, hot flushes, night sweats, brain fog and mood swings? Perimenopause is a term that describes the years leading up to, and the year after, the menopause (the point at which we haven't had a period for a year.) The average age for menopause is 51, but women may experience troublesome symptoms for several years before this.
Perimenopause is a time of huge transition and change in the body and can be the first time in our lives that we have to consciously work on health and wellbeing. For some, this can come with other life changes and questions around career, relationships and family, which all contributes to stress levels.
As with any transition, there are mental, emotional and spiritual aspects to perimenopause and it can be a time when women take stock of their lives and gradually come to embrace the unfolding of this next chapter and enjoy the power that comes from female experience, strength and wisdom! But sometimes, before we reach this stage, we need a little help while we are feeling overwhelmed and exhausted.
As an holistic therapist, I offer guidance at this time by helping you identify the areas where you could most benefit from support, and with a full understanding of YOUR personal situation and needs, we will devise a plan to help you feel more in control.
During a Menopause Wellness session we will discuss sleep, diet, exercise and stress and explore some of the medical and natural approaches available. We will also explore your current values and sense of purpose as this is central to finding meaning in this life transition. Each session is tailored to you as an individual. It begins with a 90 minute one to one consultation with me online or in person, and we follow up a couple of weeks later with a phone call to see how you're getting on. Further calls/sessions can be arranged as you need them.
It's really important that you are motivated to make some changes before you have your first session, even if you're not sure what these need to be, so that we can make the most of our time together and you can take any agreed actions forward with commitment and courage.
As a Reiki therapist, naturally I also offer a session where you can incorporate Reiki into your appointment, and enjoy a gentle, supportive and relaxing treat as part of the process!
