Confidence Workshop

Confidence is often a huge issue in midlife and particularly for women as our hormones go haywire. We can become susceptible to society’s negative messages about ageing. And without confidence we can find ourselves very curtailed from much of the best stuff life has to offer.

Lack of confidence can cause us to doubt our relevance and leave us questioning our continuing value in the world. It’s a potential nightmare unless we get a hold on our own ability to increase our confidence. Which is perfectly possible to do!

This highly practical workshop is designed to up your confidence levels and turn you back into Wonder Woman!

Menopause Workshop

Welcome to the menopause workshop! This workshop is all about the change that happens to us all in midlife, the good, the bad, and the rather marvelous.

Disclaimer: Rachel is not a medical practitioner but has spent the last decade learning about menopause since going through it early at 41, so she knows quite a lot. While she went on HRT because of early menopause, she came off it at 50. She's a big fan of managing menopause naturally when possible, so this is the main focus of this workshop. Do consult your doctor if in any doubt!
