My menopause story is also a COVID story. As the world was taken over by a pandemic, I was taken over by hot flashes, emotional flare-ups and heightened anxiety. And because I was wearing masks and there was a lot of anxiety and anger around the pandemic, I initially didn’t connect my symptoms to menopause. Maybe you had this too?

Or you might experience a similar confusion around your symptoms, if you’re going through a family trauma, a relationship break-up, or a big work change. Everything is amplified and so your menopause symptoms get mixed in with the life-stuff.

I was doing all my normal self-care practices to manage the anxiety, but I was still feeling very sensitive and emotionally charged. So, I was looking at other possible options when I found my Chinese Medicine doctor. They focused on resetting my gut and soothing my anxiety. It was not until I was complaining about being overheated in the mask that we realised I was having hot flashes. Aha! That explained the extreme anxiety and anger too. And once we switched up the Chinese herbs to specifically address the menopause – everything changed. Yay!

And it occurred to me as I lay on the massage table that my life coaching clients, who are mostly 45- to 60-year-old women, have all been going through menopause and honestly, I’d not been able to fully understand the intensity of their experiences until now.

They’ve been feeling anxious, out of control, like their body is betraying them, getting angry over the smallest things, sweating through their sheets, feeling confused, foggy mind, irregular cycles, taking clothes on and off all day long, overwhelmed, grieving their youth, not comfortable to share their pain and honestly, feeling like they are going crazy. I’ve caught up now ladies!! … I really get it now!!

Are you feeling these strong emotions too?

On that … did you know that there are 34 possible menopause symptoms? I didn’t.

Menopause symptoms can include: hot flashes, night sweats, irregular periods, mood changes, breast soreness, vaginal dryness, headaches, tingling extremities, burning mouth, changes in taste, fatigue, bloating, digestive issues, joint pain, muscle aches, electric shock sensations, itchiness, sleep disturbance, difficulty concentrating, memory lapses, thinning hair, brittle nails, weight gain, stress incontinence, dizzy spells, allergies, osteoporosis, irregular heartbeat, body odour, irritability, depression, anxiety, panic disorder.

Holy Moly! It is no wonder we are all feeling overwhelmed, am I right?

So, it took me a little while to work out, what I call, my MenoRecipe™. It’s the menu of self-care ingredients of actions and services that will deeply nurture and support you through this transition. It could include complimentary therapies, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), exercise, counselling, and a list of other support services. Menopause can be overwhelming. Every woman needs their own unique MenoRecipe™ to take back control of their life.

My menu has included a combination of Reiki energy healing, Acupuncture, Chinese medicine, Bowen Therapy, meditation, Kinesiology, Chiropractic, yoga, journalling, tennis, moon cycle harmonising, crystal therapy, and most recently … cold water immersion (eeek  YES– it’s AWESOME!).

But how do you work out the recipe for you?

How do you know where to start?

That’s where I come in …

I’m a menopause mentor and life coach, who specialises in creating MenoRecipes™ for women to manage their unique mind-body-spirit symptoms in the best way for them to thrive, so they can feel less overwhelmed, alone, crazy, and out of control and more confident, connected to their soul and emotionally realigned.

Having a MenoRecipe™ is essential for every woman, because you are a divine unique being and your experience of menopause will be different from your mum’s, sister’s, and friend’s – so the self-care ingredients of your MenoRecipe™ will be unique too.

My expertise in heart-storming, psychology, 20+ years of working with divine guides, creating self-care programs, and lived experience of menopause are invaluable resources.

I’ve always worked with women going through menopause, but now that I’m going through it myself, I’m even more perfectly positioned to help you to collate the overwhelming list of self-care actions that are right for you, so you can relax. I’ve got your back. We can do this together! A problem shared is a problem solved.

Qualifications-wise – I have a degree in Psychology, I’m a Reiki Master Coach, an Advanced Angel Intuitive, Meditation Teacher and creator of the Divine Alignment Code™ coaching program.

It’s nice to know that your coach has some legit qualifications, skills, AND experience of your condition, it gives you more confidence in their ability to support and advise you, right?

I want to remind you that you’re not just this mind and this body, you also have a spirit … and if you are not nurturing all the elements of your whole being then you can become disconnected, hopeless, lost, and feel like your life has no meaning.

Menopause is the perfect time to be doing this spiritual development work. It’s in the name … it’s the time to pause and review your life, while answering the important seeker questions like “is this all there is?” and “what’s the purpose of my life?”

All my focus is on offering simple skills to improve your self-care and expand your connection to your soul.  I only work with clients that I know I can help. So, if you’re a fun, open-minded person who is willing to try new things, prepared to take action to learn how to heal yourself, that’s perfect!

So, ladies if you’re going through menopause too, then I’m sure I can help to support you … I’d like to offer you a complimentary ‘What’s my MenoRecipe™?” 60-minute coaching session, that includes getting clear on your specific menopause symptoms, heart-storming how you’d prefer to feel, and creating a simple MenoRecipe™ for you to use immediately … just click on the calendar link here to book a time OR send me an email
