Understanding Menopause Workshop for Wellbeing Professionals, Sat, 15 February 2020 – Milton Keynes
This day is for all wellbeing professionals, if you support women in any capacity in your work, this day has been designed for you.
Menopause is so much more than hot flushes and night sweats, often still the butt of jokes and social stigma it has been poorly understood for far too long leaving many women to suffer in silence. The menopause transition can be a challenging experience for women as many simply don’t understand what is happening to them. This is where wellbeing professionals can play a key support role.
Wellbeing professionals are ideally placed to offer support and guidance through the menopause transition when they are able to recognise these hormonal shifts. Throughout the day we will share up to date factual, evidence based information and insight from both our professional and personal experiences in this area to help you recognise menopause and the potential impact on mental, emotional and physical health and wellbeing.
The purpose of this one day training is to provide wellbeing professionals with an overview of the physical and psychological symptomology of the Menopause. Drawing on real women’s stories to explore the complexity of menopause this workshop will equip you to support clients, patients and colleagues experiencing menopause.
Subjects covered will include
What is menopause? – When does menopause happen? – What are the symptoms of menopause? – What are the choices? -How can menopause affect women? – How can menopause affect work? -How can menopause affect relationships? -How can wellbeing professionals help? -Menopause and beyond -Menopause and self care

Location: MK9 2HQ, Holiday Inn, 500 Saxon Gate, Milton Keynes, MK9 2HQ
This workshop is designed specifically for counsellors and therapists to explain how symptoms of the menopause may be presenting in your client. It is vital that therapists are able to recognise when a woman may be experiencing symptoms of menopause sometimes even before the woman herself has made the connection.
Our group workshops are an opportunity for women to join Diane for an interactive session where we will talk all things menopause. After a presentation and some light refreshment you will have the opportunity to ask your questions. These sessions are supportive, open, honest and fun; often full of laughter and sometimes tears, these sessions are intended to empower women to take control of their menopause in whatever way feels right.
