Mindfulness and Relaxation for Menopause – FULLY booked

This course is now fully booked but please email Ruth if you would like to register your interest for future courses (details below).

“I feel more accepting toward my body and what’s happening to it. Before it was like all these barriers were up. And it was frightening experience. Now, those hot sweats have become less prominent and I feel okay when they do come…”

A new, online, pioneering course aimed at peri-menopausal, and menopausal women.

Mindfulness and relaxation for menopause will be a FREE 8 week course, focusing on using mindfulness and relaxation techniques to help manage the psychological impacts of this life transition. For many women, the physiological symptoms can be difficult to cope with, while others see a deterioration in mental health with increased levels of anxiety, or a drop in mood.

This course will allow women to support each other, while also teaching mindfulness techniques which are already proven to help stress, anxiety and low-mood. Instead of being a ‘pure’ mindfulness course, we will also include relaxation techniques specifically aimed at increasing capacity to manage anxiety. It is hoped that these techniques will also help women cope with the impact of the physiological symptoms as well.

“Having had a very difficult past 18 months, exacerbated by/ caused by (I will never know!) the menopause, this course has been very grounding for me. It has helped me to manage and cope with the stresses and changes of this time of life at a time when I thought I might not get through it. It has given me brain space, an ability to accept what is happening, and choices in how I respond to life’s ups and downs.”
