A 12-week high-level 1:1 programme for menopausal women who want to lose weight, fix their hot flushes and stop feeling knackered, and instead start feeling confident and in control so they live a life they love

Does this sound familiar?

  • Your weight keeps creeping on even though you’ve tried “all the things” like cutting out calories, and doing more exercise.​

  • Your bloating is making you feel really uncomfortable. You don’t know what to eat to stop it and there are piles of clothes in your wardrobe that no longer fit you​.

  • You feel physically and mentally exhausted even when you’ve had a decent sleep.

  • Everything feels like such a colossal effort.

  • You're waking up at 3 o'clock every night and can’t get back to sleep.  You lie there thinking about all the things you need to get done.

  • You feel like you’re losing your mind. You can’t remember names for toffee; you’re stumbling over words, and can even lose your train of thought mid-sentence.

  •  Your days are filled with hot flushes, and your night sweats leave you waking up soaking wet. 

  • You’re anxious and irritable, angry and teary. Everything annoys you - sometimes for no reason at all - then you feel guilty for shouting at everyone. 

  • You’ve lost your confidence and you’re wondering what the hell happened to you.

  • You can’t stand to see yourself in photos and avoid having your picture taken at all costs.


  • You’ve stopped socialising as you just can’t face it any more.

This was me too. I've been exactly where you are right now 😩

Menopause hit me like a wrecking ball when I hit 47 thanks to a combination of long work hours, stress, divorce, denial, and not actually doing many of the things I knew to do.  

I felt fat, frumpy and overwhelmed. I looked middle aged, and felt achy and creaky like an old lady. There were probably only a couple of outfits in my entire wardrobe I looked OK in and there was no photographic evidence of my existence for years.


My children found my hot flushes hysterical. It was off and on with the cardigans all day long - like the hokey- cokey but a lot less fun. Wine o’clock became a  coping mechanism, which meant too many compensatory coffees the next day.  

I hit rock bottom.  It was time to get off my comfortable arse, get my mindset, diet and exercise back on track. I began focusing on me.

I ran a few tests to find out what was going on under the bonnet and started making small but consistent changes each and every day. 

I did nothing extreme. I ate regular food, pretty much identical to the food I was cooking for the kids. No kale involved or joining a running club! 

Within a couple of months, I had shifted the weight I wanted to and had reversed many of the niggles that had crept in - blood glucose had strayed into the prediabetes range without warning and my blood pressure (which had always been great) was ‘under observation’. 

I continued to eat well, exercise and always get a good night's sleep and soon my friends were asking what my secret was.

Now imagine this...❤️

  • You’re back in your favourite jeans and looking fierce.  In fact, your whole wardrobe is full of possibilities.

  • The bloating you’ve had for years has gone.

  • Every night is a good night now you’re sleeping better and waking up rested.

  • Your hot flushes have disappeared and you can’t wait to go shopping for jumpers.

  • You feel calm and confident, focussed and clear-headed.

  •  You’ve found a way of eating that suits you and it’s easy to eat well, whether you’re cooking at home or are out for dinner with friends. 

  • You feel ‘normal’ - like the old you but a better, upgraded version. 

  • You know exactly how to set up your day so you can make the most of it. You love your life. 

“I cannot have more energy than I have. This is more than I ever had.I am never too tired to do something. I like the shape of my body better. I look in the mirror and think, that's how I want to be. I feel my body can cope with anything - physically and mentally. I feel like I am strong."


"I’ve lost 15lbs and gone from 16 to a comfortable 14, sometimes a 12. I've been wearing things I haven't worn in years. I still need to lose but this is a lot more than I've lost for many years. The people I saw at Christmas were staggered by how much I'd lost."
