How can we help

It is roughly estimated that over our lifetime, women have 450 periods. Towards the end there is a gradual decline.  Due to hormonal changes at this time, in particular a reduction in estrogen, menopause can be accompanied by symptoms such as hot flushes, insomnia and irritability. It can be an very extremely challenging time that affects your relationships, work efficacy, and all over life quality.

During menopause, it’s really important you get support and guidance to help minimise the impact this time can have on your life. By preparing for the transition and managing its onset through discussion, diet and lifestyle advice, we can help.
