Hypnotherapy and the Menopause

Menopause is something that can affect nearly EVERYONE! Either because they are female and their bodies will undergo this change or because they are related, close, live with or work with a female who will undergo this change.

Menopause is actually only one day in a woman’s life before this day and potentially for many years before she is peri-menopausal.  During the peri-menopausal years a woman’s oestrogen and progesterone levels fluctuate and when these hormones are out of whack, the body can go haywire both physically and emotionally.  Even after the menopause symptoms are still very common affecting more than three-quarters of post-menopausal women.

A symptom associated with the menopause are hot flashes however these can be the most manageable as they are expected.  What a lot of people are completely unaware of and which comes as a bit of a surprise is ANXIETY and just to throw in a few more gems there’s panic attacks, weight gain, low mood, exhaustion, brain fog, depression, insomnia, lack of confidence, low libido, aching limbs and joints.

Other glorious symptoms include heart palpitations, irritability, hair loss, memory loss, dizziness, incontinence and bloating.  The list is seemingly endless and therefore the menopause can be quite a tough ride for all concerned!

The prescribing of hormone replacement therapy is still considered controversial and many women opt not to choose HRT for health and personal reasons.  Even on HRT women often still struggle with their symptoms.

Clinical hypnotherapy has been shown to be effective in reducing many of the symptoms of the menopause and can support you to gain control of your body and emotions.
