Menopause doesn’t need to feel like an ending. Armed with knowledge, a constructive plan for the future and with the support of each other we can see this as a positive new chapter.
A Holistic Approach to Womens Health
Changing hormones throw many challenges our way in the lead – up to menopause and can make us long to feel ‘like our old selves’ again. Improving health at this time can feel like a battlefield. But rest assured. With tailored strategies for supporting our bodies and brains we can take back control and work towards being happier and healthier, now and in the future.
We will evaluate your health goals together and make a constructive plan of how to proceed to give you the best chance of achieving these goals. This could include boosting energy levels, improving confidence and body image, feeling more physically capable for everyday activities, improving mood, losing weight, becoming stronger, boosting health through nutrition, protecting bone health, reducing stress / anxiety and a focus on wellbeing.
Smart Nutrition for Menopause
Our bodies are changing and will respond differently to what and how we eat. This requires a new approach to nutrition from one we might have used in our twenties and thirties. On the positive side you can say GOODBYE to restrictive diets and hunger! Now is the most important time to support yourself by working towards a sustainable, enjoyable healthy diet that optimises your chance of maintaining a healthy weight and feeling great!
I will work with you to come up with an eating plan that fits around your life and routines with consideration of all the elements that support our bodies through this challenging transition including adequate vitamins and balance of protein, carbs and fresh veg, blood sugar control, reduction in processed foods and supporting good gut health and bowel function.
Exercise Strategy for Menopause
There are many barriers to exercise for women in peri – menopause and it can be hard to prioritise our wellbeing ahead of many other demands placed on us. But as our bodies and brains desperately need movement to deal with the stress they are under and to safeguard our future, I’m passionate about helping women find activities to get them moving regularly, feel better and perhaps even enjoy themselves along the way! With consideration of your previous exercise habits, likes and dislikes, any injuries, time, commitments and health goals I will help you come up with a plan for building exercise into your life in a sustainable way. Would you like to try something new to rekindle your interest in exercise? How about boxing? Or wild swimming? My true passion is strength training for women which is an empowering way to keep your body healthy as you age – and feel amazing! I’d love to get you started on your way to better health 🙂
I've been doing Soph's circuit sessions which have recently morphed into remote sessions via Zoom! I'm not a sporty type but her sessions are always fun and relaxed, and she always shows variations of each exercise so you can work to the right level for you. Each session has a musical theme too which gives good variety. I'm toning up rapidly and improving my cardiac fitness, all within a 5ft square space in my bedroom!

Really enjoy Sophie's Ab Attack classes. Not only is it a fun work out, its really effective too - my riding instructor has commented on the improvement in my core strength in just a few weeks. Have also just started Sophie's early morning Circuits class which was a great way to start the day. Thanks Sophie!
