MIDLIFE COACHING

I believe menopause is a time when women’s power, wisdom and creativity push to the surface, calling for her attention.

(Dr Christiana Northrup) 

How we would work together

One to one coaching to take stock of where you are now, help you take some control back of your wellbeing.

3 sessions, plus a free introductory assessment, to boost your midlife nourishment and self-care.

I am here to listen, guide, support you through transformation.  And these transformations don’t need to be big.  Sometimes it is the small simple habit changes that can make such a difference, rippling out to other areas of your life.   Or perhaps you are doing great but are just looking for reassurance that this is the case.

Think of it a bit like an MOT.  A midlife MOT.

And of course there is the option to book more sessions, at a reduced rate, should you need them.

Unsure or have questions?  Please get in touch.

Session 1 - Nourishment

When the mind and body are well nourished, everything works better. What  you are putting into your body (and how you do this), can help balance hormones, provide energy, help the brain work, and boost mood.  I can give you an overview of the role of hormones, brain chemicals, and blood sugar balance.   This is not about the perfect diet though, nor dieting, or miracle cures.  We will look briefly at what you are eating and drinking now, see what could be improved, and how to implement this.

Session 2 - Calmer mind

All the broccoli in the world won’t help you through the midlife years if stress, anxiety or depression are taking over.   Life is stressful at times, but its how we perceive and manage that stress that is crucial.

The menopause can increase anxiety  for some. We want to lessen anxiety about the anxiety, and focus on how to live in a calmer way that is important to you.  We will also take a brief look at your inner voice – a friend or enemy?  Awareness, acceptance, change.

Session 3 - Life balance

The last session is outward looking – how do you spend your time?  Do you build in time for you, without guilt?  Are you moving enough, and in the right way?  Is your work life balance OK?  Is something missing from your life that we can do something about?

Are you a ‘rushing woman’?  You might squeeze in all the right things but if it stresses you out this will be detrimental.  And don’t forget about sleep and rest – so important for balance in our lives.

The package

After a free assessment (with no obligation) this package offers 3 x 1 hour sessions.  All about you.

Above is my suggested session format.  However, what each client needs is the priority so if you would like 2 or 3 sessions on one area that is absolutely fine.

We can go at your pace – weekly, bi-weekly, monthly.

At each session we will focus on areas to boost midlife healthiness.  We will be careful not to overload you with changes, this is about being manageable and sustainable.

You will receive relevant information, resources and support, by email, following each session.

And one month after the last session I will check in with you to see how you are getting on.

Support, listening, guidance, motivation, accountability. 

How we approach midlife varies enormously between women. A blessing, a curse, or a non-event?
I want women to experience these years in the best physical and mental health they can, particularly if they are having symptoms already.  I want women to Blossom in midlife, and prepare for later life in a positive and healthful way.
For some, the symptoms of the peri-menopause, start up to 10 years before the menopause, this can be a shock.
So, if …….
your body is changing,
you don’t feel quite right, different, not like the old you,
your mind can’t quite be relied on in the same way,
something feels out of balance …….
it maybe that the peri-menopause has started.  And if so, you are not alone.
According to the NHS8 out of 10 women experience peri-menopausal symptoms.  These can start up to 10 years before the menopause.  You can read about symptoms hereall 66 of them!
1 in 10 women experience symptoms for up to 12 years after their last period.
So this ‘midlife’ could last quite a long time.  Too long to ‘just put up with it’.  Positive action can be taken.

I am a regular writer for the quarterly ‘Menopause Matters’ magazine.  

This package will not give a medical diagnosis of the peri /menopause or associated symptoms.  Instead it is intended to sit alongside any current medical supervision and medication you may be receiving.    I will not be making any recommendations for medical treatments such as HRT, nor perscribing foods to ‘cure’ symptoms.   There is, some would say, unfortunately no magic pill to make all the symptoms of the peri-menopause disappear, however I do know that how we live our lives can help many of us women.
If I feel that other members of my network can assist you more than I can I will signpost you on.  I work with Nutritional Therapists, Counsellors, Energy therapists, Personal Trainers etc who each excel in their own area and may be of interest to you.
I am an Integrated Nutrition Health Coach, a Culinary Medicine Coach, and an Eating Disorder Practitioner.  I am not a medic, Dietician, or Nutritional Therapist.  Please see here for a full list of my qualifications.
Ts & Cs – clients are welcome to purchase the package more than once.  Sessions will begin after signing of my agreement and payment received in full.  No refunds are available, however sessions be can be deferred should client circumstances change.  Session pace will be determined by the client and the above package content is a suggested format, time allowing in sessions. 

“My coaching is designed to bring benefits to you in a way that will make them sustainable, through gradual changes, that will become part of your daily routines.”
