Menopause – How Menopause Effects Mental Health
Are you suffering from symptoms of the menopause? Hot flushes, anxiety, depression, weight gain, heart palpitations, etc? Is it getting you down? Do you wish that there was another way to deal with the symptoms without taking medication?
If yes, then read on as there is lots you can do naturally to recover from the symptoms you are feeling. Sadly menopause isn’t well recognised by employers or supported well by the NHS which is leaving lots of men and women in despair feeling dreadful and without hope. There is lots you can do to reduce or eliminate your symptoms, and it involves taking a more holistic look at your life and becoming much more self aware about your life, your emotions and your behaviour.
There are many holistic and talking therapies which can be offered to you, to help you understand what you are going through. You may also need relationship coaching if you are finding it difficult with your partner at this transitional time in your life. It can be a very challenging time!!
You may be needing to resolve trauma, learn some anger management skills, build confidence, self worth and self esteem following abuse or bullying, or to change negative habits or patterns which are sabotaging your success. Together I will help you to deal with stress, depression and anxiety which arises due to the menopause and whilst you are figuring out your life direction. I can work with you to improve your communication in your relationships, use counselling/coaching skills with you to resolve issues which are concerning you as well as reducing your stress and anxiety.
