How do we deliver?
First, we provide expert independent advice and education on medical, nutritional, exercise and lifestyle interventions to take your health to the next level. We're able to offer this 360° service because of our specialist backgrounds and many years of experience helping individuals in mid-life.
Our advice is not only theoretical, but also highly practical, so you can benefit from ideas that you can get working on straight away.
We also provide a safe, enquiring and nurturing community of women in mid-life who want to share their stories, ask questions of each other and offer mutual support.
We deliver all this through our community groups - you can sign up to our online interactive community courses - and through the training we provide to organisations and their employees.
We believe it's important that women in their 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond are empowered to live life to the full, both at work and at play.
We would love to hear from you. If you have any questions regarding our programmes or our workplace menopause training.

Nutrition & Menopause
Many of us move into perimenopause and menopause wanting to lose some weight and so it’s all too easy to enter mid-life with a feeling of mild dread that we’re somehow going to have start eating less.
If this is you, you may be relieved to learn that often it’s about eating MORE, not less, that will improve your health during the menopause transition. It’s about WHAT you eat - not about trying to get by on so few calories that you’re always hungry, always thinking about the next meal.
Food and nutrition are your friends during perimenopause and menopause. They are powerful tools for making our minds and bodies more resilient in our 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. Eating a healthy diet optimises our: mood - cognition - sleep - energy - libido- digestion - bowel comfort - hair, skin, nails and gums - muscles, bones and joints - immune system and blood sugar stability.
We love nothing more than chatting about the fabulous power of food and giving practical tips to make a healthy diet accessible to EVERYONE in mid-life. Much of our programmes focuses on using nutrition to make mid-life some of the healthiest years of our lives - come and join us to share in the learning and discussion.
