Supporting Women in Midlife – Are you rocking, thriving and embracing life with passion and excitement? No? Then let me help you explore and deepen your relationship with yourself.

Phew, this is a long enough list but by no means a conclusive one. If you resinate with any of these points and want to make changes then contact me today for a free 30 minute consultation.
Managing the effect of Perimenopause / Menopause / Post Menopause
Do you know the symptoms and effects? Let’s discover the truth and find out what’s really going on!
What’s really going on!
Perimenopause. Menopause. Postmenopause. These are the three stages of menopause as documented by the medical field, but no two women experience the exact same symptoms at the exact same age. However, it may surprise you to learn that from the age of 40+ you are likely to be going through the Perimenopause and as a result you could have or could be experiencing some of the following symptoms:
What fun it is being a women! Is it any wonder that if you are experiencing any of the above the likelihood is your life has been impacted as a result and you are having issues with:
Our quality of life depends on the quality of our relationships, and menopause is often a turning point. Do you need support to work through your relationships (partners/family & friends) to understand which ones add value to your life?
By midlife you have acquired a number of transferable skills regardless of whether you have been formally paid for them or not. I can help you to identify your key skills and experiences to take action to bolster your career in this second half of life?
Career / Work
By the age of 40+, most women have experienced losses: a lost loved one, a miscarriage, a painful breakup or divorce, job loss, children have left home. Have you had the space to process these losses, or for processing the emotions surrounding them. Is it any wonder then that we end up carrying that pain into all aspects of our lives?
Money is a touchy subject for many of us and the source of deep emotions, conflicts, and anxiety. This conflict is likely to be a core belief that we have held since childhood. I can help you to uncover your true beliefs about money and support you to change them.
Does the fear of getting old and death make you feel anxious? Research tells us that women in their 50’s are more likely to be afraid of death than men. This fear is normal and natural but it doesn’t have to stop you from living and aging well. Even minor anxieties have the potential to greatly affect the way we behave, and can result in troubling physical symptoms.
Many women struggle to feel good about themselves in midlife, yet the physical and emotional reasons behind this are rarely explored.
The typical symptoms are:
- weight gain
- aging face
- what should I wear – mutton dressed as lamb
- can I have long hair?
- can I go grey or will I look too old?
- Am I young or am I old?
In the space we create together, you will have the opportunity to see how menopause is affecting your self-image, and take steps to shift your thoughts towards self-compassion.
Dealing with Anxiety & Phobias
Imagine no longer feeling anxious or being phobia free - Let’s go on a journey together to root out your worries and concerns and get your life back on track
What is Anxiety
Anxiety is a general feeling of fear, uneasiness, panic or nervousness.
Fear Vs Anxiety!
Fear is an emotional reaction to specific objects or situations that are maybe linked to traumatic events of the past. Anxiety is a reaction to an undetermined threat, often vague and imprecise – understanding the difference between the two can help in determining a diagnosis and treatment plan in anxiety disorders.
Everyone feels anxiety at some point when faced with a challenging situation, such as going for an driving lesson, performances, interview, starting a new job, or sitting exams. It is evolutionary, how we were created, and the body’s way of keeping us safe.
Anxiety makes us more alert and sends blood to our limbs so we can run away from a really scary situations like a scary predator like a tiger, a car coming towards you. Our bodies were designed to react this way, however we no longer have to deal with the same hungry tiger threats that we once did. Phew!
For some people, the anxious feeling goes away after a short period, when we perceive the threat to be over, and we can begin to feel calmer again. However, for others, we are left with an overwhelming feeling of anxiety and we find it hard to calm ourselves down again. This is then known as an anxiety disorder.
When the feelings are too strong, or too constant, or too overwhelming, we may need tools and techniques to help us. Anxiety can soon spiral out of control and have an impact on our lives, maybe preventing us from walking into crowded places, attending social situations, or preventing us from leaving the house all together.
The pandemic has increased people’s levels of anxiety. Some of us are still able to portray confidence to the outside world, while not able to function behind closed doors. The to-do list may be out of control and it feels safer to start nothing, than fail at something. You may be overwhelmed, stuck in a rut and not able to see a way forward. Some of us will feel anxious all of the time, while others may feel extreme anxiety in certain situations where we feel threatened.
With as many as one in four people experiencing anxiety, it is a very common mental health condition. The good news is I can help you. I have many techniques I can use to help you overcome your anxiety issue(s). I have a proven track record with clients of significantly reducing anxiety for their situation in one session.

What are Phobias? (As described by the NHS)
A phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an object, place, situation, feeling or animal. Phobias are more pronounced than fears. They develop when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation or object. If a phobia becomes very severe, a person may organise their life around avoiding the thing that’s causing them anxiety. As well as restricting their day-to-day life, it can also cause a lot of distress.
A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder. You may not experience any symptoms until you come into contact with the source of your phobia. But in some cases, even thinking about the source of a phobia can make a person feel anxious or panicky. This is known as anticipatory anxiety.

How Does NLP Help Allergies?
The premise of NLP suggests that allergic reactions (an immune response from the body) are directly influenced by the mind and other psychological factors. NLP works by questioning these factors, and teaches the individual on how to have more control over his or her body’s response to allergens.
Through techniques mentioned earlier, NLP practically retrains the immune system to react less, if at all, to allergens. It aims to treat the allergy by reeducating the immune system to react passively instead of actively in response to allergens (and other foreign substances) via techniques of psychological reframing.
Allergies can often develop in times of great change such as puberty, marriage, poor health and with even parenthood. These changes can all affect us both externally and internally at a cellular level. With these changes in mind, NLP aims to help the individual identify how and when the allergy developed, and reeducates the body on how it may have acted differently. In training the imagination, NLP teaches the body what it needed to know to deal with the allergen at that crucial time of development, giving it a new point of reference for future encounters with allergens.
