I had never heard of the word peri-menopause until I hit 40! It was a very close friend of mine who advised me a week after my 40th birthday that I had now hit this new stage of my life – I wasn’t prepared and I had no idea what this meant.

I began to notice changes in my body that I didn’t quite know or understand: muscle aches and pains, memory loss, weight gain and hot flushes – all very typical signs of peri-menopause.

Nearly 10 years later and now this is a subject that is slowly being more openly talked about. I am really proud to be part of a movement of women who are supporting, embracing and educating women.

I completed my Menopause Yoga training with Petra Coveney in September 2020.  This was the first course of its time.  It was much more than just training – it has become a brilliant support group.  I now work alongside Petra on these trainings sharing my other passion, Restorative Yoga which plays a very important role at this time in our lives.

I’m very passionate about educating myself and other women in what can sometimes be a lonely, desperate time which is why I have created my menopause workshops. I currently work alongside a local specialist menopause GP and together we run private workshops locally in NW5. I have also created bespoke Menopause in the Workplace workshops for business. Within these workshops we share up to date and evidence backed advice alongside giving practical advice as to how to manage menopause symptoms. I also offer a unique and invaluable service as a Menopause Doula. Working closely with women in midlife, I provide personalised support to help navigate the challenges of this intricate phase of life. I create a safe space for women to share their experiences and help them embark on this transformative journey.

I am a member of the British Menopause Society and the International Menopause Society. I am currently undertaking Louise Newson’s Confidence in Menopause training that has been created for Healthcare professionals.
