WOW- Women of the World Festival Southbank Centre 11th March 2018
The panel will discuss hot flushes, changing moods, loss of libdo… the menopause has a bad reputation. But is the second half of a woman’s life necessarily the worst? Is there a conspiracy of silence over the menopause? Do women of a certain age become invisible? What does how we talk – or not talk – about the menopause say about how society views women?
Exploring the Menopause Workshop
3-4th March 2018
Exacerbated by a lack of knowledge and negative social attitudes, many women find the Menopause a confusing and uncomfortable phase in their lives. This weekend aims to give women a voice and empower them to understand their choices for managing a healthy transition through the menopause.
We will provide information about:
- the physiological process of the Menopause phase
- the impact of Stress on physical and emotional well being
- managing symptoms like anxieties, hot flushes, sleep difficulties
Through experiential exercises and group discussion there is an opportunity to explore:
- beliefs, experiences and myths about Menopause
- your relationship with your own cycle of life
- your thoughts and feelings about sexuality
- ‘The Change’-your goals, dreams, hopes
The workshop is facilitated by Cabby Laffy (Psychosexual Therapist) & Eileen Bellot founder of Reclaim the Menopause.
This workshop accounts for 12 hours CPD
Fee: £150 waged. Concessions are available for low/ unwaged on request
Please call Cabby to enquire 07981 665 917
