The methods I use have a proven track record in helping reduce hot flushes, insomnia, stress, and anxiety, all of which can make this time of life particularly challenging. Either during my workshops, or in one-to-one therapy, the techniques I use can reduce the myriad of problems caused by the menopause and help women to feel like themselves again and get their old sparkle back!
How can menopause make you feel?
“It’s the most horrible time of my life. It comes at the same time as all other horrid stuff, parent’s death, children leaving home. I simply don’t feel myself.”
“Anxious, constant feeling of nerves and stress for no apparent reason. Sudden bursts of feeling very angry for no real reason. My body has changed shape, my skin is dry and it is very hard to keep weight off.”
“I have a constant niggling yuk-ness. Always something not quite right, I never feel completely well.”
How would you describe hot flushes?
“I started off 5 to 6 years ago with a hot feeling in the pit of my stomach, which developed over a few minutes until I thought I was going to burst into flames. This was accompanied by nausea. The last year or so, they have been more sweaty type of sweats, with the sweat sometimes pouring down my face. I have also had some horrible BO smell that isn’t directly linked to the sweats.”
These are just a few of the comments made to me by women in their menopause! If any of these comments resonate with you don’t despair! There are skills that you can learn and practice that will help you deal with the impact of the menopause on your life.
My treatment methods incorporate hypnotherapy, relaxation, EFT/tapping and stress management to enable you to overcome the challenges of the menopause.
Using hypnotherapy you can learn how to reduce the number and impact of hot flushes, find ways to sleep better, gain motivation for improving your exercise or reducing weight and reduce stress and anxiety.
Because of my science background I strongly believe in offering techniques that are proven to have real benefit. Hypnosis has been shown, in properly conducted clinical trials, to be as effective at treating hot flushes as conventional hormone treatment (HRT) and has a wealth of evidence for its effectiveness in reducing anxiety and treating insomnia.
Each session includes a hypnotherapy practical that can be recorded for future use at home.
