When we are menopausal, premenopausal, or post-menopausal we can feel like our mind and body are not our own anymore!
Anxiety, low mood, loss of confidence, low self-esteem and irritability are all symptoms we can suffer from during this time, and it can be very difficult to feel motivated and in control.
While there used to be a huge stigma around menopause and its symptoms, things are different now and most of us will try to do all that we can to overcome these negative feelings and emotions. Reducing stress levels, taking up exercise and eating a healthier diet with a reduced intake of caffeine and alcohol can all contribute to reducing some symptoms.
Usually when seeking help to manage the symptoms of menopause out first call would be to our medical practitioner, and this would be a sensible and appropriate step. Once it has been confirmed that you are menopausal, Hypnotherapy can help.
There is a huge amount of research that recommends hypnotherapy for the management of symptoms, including hot flushes and The International Menopause Society recommends relaxation and mindfulness in the reduction of menopause symptoms.
Solution focused Hypnotherapy uses trance and positive focused talk to enable you to take control and feel confident again.
Dependant on the clients commitment, you would expect to have 8 – 12 sessions but results vary with each individual.
