Perimenopause is affecting women in business in a major way, leading to lower productivity, feeling overwhelmed and uncertainty as your body becomes unpredictable.

Learning to thrive through perimenopause means higher profits in your business, putting the spark back in your marriage and being the best mum that you can possibly be.

Peri is a normal reproductive phase that women in their 30s and 40s go through, so you’re guaranteed to experience some of these symptoms at some stage of your reproductive development.

Through this podcast, I share the experiences and symptoms of perimenopause and some practical things that you can start implementing so you can feel heard and seen, but also find solutions to move forward.

I’m honoured to have you!

    100: Big Announcement: Why I'm Changing EVERYTHING After 100 Episodes

    100: Big Announcement: Why I'm Changing EVERYTHING After 100 Episodes

    In this monumental 100th episode of the Perimenopause Podcast, I'm sharing some really exciting news of why I'm changing EVERYTHING about my podcast AND business after 100 episodes.
    Having seen numerous women business owners suffer severe burnout due to hormonal imbalances caused by perimenopause, I've decided to narrow down my focus specifically to female entrepreneurs
    The upcoming episodes will introduce a brand-new, rebranded focus on the lifestyle factors affecting women's hormones, and less of the specific hormonal physiology. The podcast will provide insights on topics such as self-worth, family, past trauma, and how they impact women's hormonal health and wellness. I'll be bringing on some of my most loved experts to help you build your business in a holistic way, from health and wellness, to business strategy and everything in between.
    While this change may not be a perfect fit for all my current listeners, this hub will focus on high-achieving women to find comprehensive information and support during their perimenopause & entrepreneurial journey.
    This episode marks the beginning of a new era for the Perimenopause Podcast (soon to be rebranded), as well as my continued commitment to reaching and supporting as many women navigating these challenges as possible.
    I hope you'll enjoy this episode and hang around for the next 100 episodes!

    98: Is HRT The Answer To Perimenopause

    98: Is HRT The Answer To Perimenopause

    While HRT offers substantial health benefits, there are some key considerations in determining if this is the right step for you. 
    I've recently had a few questions around the use of HRT (yes, there has been a massive hype on social media about this) and I think it's important to see it as a short-term solution, not the ultimate fix, to hormonal imbalances. 
    In this episode I discuss the important steps to consider when you think about 'fixing' your hormone imbalance during perimenopause and the key, foundational steps to take FIRST before considering any pharmaceutical drugs (which includes Hormone Replacement Therapy - HRT).
    I also mention some pretty helpful herbal remedies that I've used with my clients and on myself and that you should try also BEFORE considering HRT.
    If you would like to talk through your personalized health strategy, including supplements and herbal remedies, I'd love to help you determine what the best next step is for you.  So book a free discovery call here.
