I wonder how you are using your New Year break? (that’s if you get one!). Are you resting from the incredibly stressful year that you’ve just experienced, or are you still rushing around and/or because you are working from home, you are still on your computer or taking your Zoom meetings in between everything else you […]
Life was already pretty overwhelming and exhausting for women going into menopause. Then along came the pandemic and for Teachers, such as Martina in Ireland, life became a lot more complex.

“Are you writing a novel?” he enquired standing next to my table at the cafe. An elderly man in his 70’s whom I hadn’t met before. He had noticed my concentration and hands flying across the keyboard. I looked up. “No, but I used to in the past” I mentioned. “A few years ago I was […]

I’m so thankful to Taryn and Claire from FitRight Physios in Perth and Anita, from Curves in Canberra, for hosting me for my Masterclass on Menopause seminars in Australia this week.
