    Can hypnotherapy help with menopause symptoms? with Sally Garozzo

    What comes to mind when you hear the word hypnotherapy? Relaxation, a deep sleep, or perhaps you're more of a sceptic and imagining being taken into a trance like state? Well in this episode, I'm joined by experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist, Sally Garozzo, and we're going to explore the practice of hypnotherapy and hear about how it could ease menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, anxiety and sleep disturbances. Sally will help us to bust some myths about hypnotherapy, help us understand the benefits and learn exactly how it can help during the perimenopause and menopause years. 
    As well as being an award winning clinical hypnotherapist and an advanced rapid transformational therapist, Sally Garozzo is also the founder of the Menopause Mindset Hypnosis collection, the world's only powerful set of hypnosis recordings, specifically for menopause symptoms. She also helps people with insomnia inside her Sleep Superpower Academy.

    Going through menopause with a disability, with Emma Livingstone

    Going through menopause with a disability, with Emma Livingstone

    Too often women living with disability are left out of the menopause and midlife women's health conversations, and as a result put their symptoms down to pre existing health conditions, not realising that they could be entering perimenopause or menopause. 
    In this episode, I’ll be talking to Emma Livingstone about navigating the menopause with a disability.
    Emma Livingstone was born with cerebral palsy and had to give up work having seen a significant decline in her mobility in recent years, leading to several surgeries. It was her frustration at the lack of knowledge and understanding of cerebral palsy as a disability affecting adults that spurred her on to begin campaigning. And she founded Up, the adult cerebral palsy movement, to campaign for better support and services and give a voice to the adult cerebral palsy community.
    In this episode:
    01:46 Why Emma founded Up
    08:09 The impact of aging on Emma’s health
    12:56 Experiences of the CP community with menopause
    21:48 Untangling diagnoses
    25:43 Recognising CP as an adult condition

    How to manage pelvic prolapse in menopause, with Kim Vopni

    How to manage pelvic prolapse in menopause, with Kim Vopni

    Your pelvic floor is an incredibly important part of the body that very often doesn't get the attention it deserves. Incontinence, painful sex and constipation are all embarrassing symptoms of a weak pelvic floor. But on occasion, poor pelvic floor health can result in more serious issues such as prolapse. All of these issues are extremely common, particularly after pregnancy and childbirth. And they're absolutely treatable, but aren't openly discussed often enough. And many women suffer unnecessarily in silence rather than seek help. So I'm delighted to be able to speak today to author pelvic floor specialist and creator of the ABS system Kim Vopni. 
    Kim Vopni is a speaker and women's health educator known as the Vagina Coach. She is a certified fitness professional who became passionate about spreading information on pelvic health when she was pregnant with her first child. 
    In this episode
    01:32 What is pelvic floor prolapse?
    6:24 How hormones affect your pelvic floor
    10:22 Pelvic floor exercise
    16:50 Pelvic floor therapy
    20:59 When is surgery the answer?

    Why resistance training is so important during midlife and menopause, with Kate Oakley

    Why is resistance training so important as we age, and how can we fit it into our busy lives? 
    In today's episode, I’m talking to personal trainer Kate Oakley, about how we can increase strength and protect our bones and joints and midlife, as well as finding ways to fit it into our day. Even if you only have five minutes to spare, we'll find out how the right kind of training can do more than just help you get through the challenges that come with menopause, but also be empowering and totally change your outlook on life. 
    Kate Oakley is the founder of Your Future Fit. She's always loved fitness and training, but it was a passion. She only turned into a career at the age of 50, after a 25 year career in HR, to help peri and postmenopausal women who are going through similar challenges to her. As a fully qualified personal trainer, Kate focuses on encouraging women to start with small habit changes to their exercise, gradually building up the consistency that is sustainable for the future.

    Looking after our bones in midlife and menopause with Dr Kate Bunyan

    Bone health and osteoporosis is often one of those forgotten symptoms of menopause.

Joining me is Dr. Kate Bunyan.

    Can you slow down ageing in midlife? with Dr Alka Patel

    Can you slow down ageing in midlife? with Dr Alka Patel

    Is it possible to slow down ageing? And how can we give ourselves the best possible chance to live a long and healthy life? 
    That's the topic I discuss in this episode with TEDx speaker, GP, lifestyle doctor and coach Dr. Alka Patel. 
    I first met Dr Alka two years ago when I interviewed her for our first ever Midlife Festival. What stuck with me is her mantra that our health is a ‘skill’ - she explained to me that health is not something we’re just given, it’s something we have to work at.
    Join me as we dive into that more closely and hear Dr Alka’s tips for how we can all make compassionate lifestyle changes for a happy, healthy and long life.

    In this episode
    00:00 Intro
    5:27 What does it take to be healthy in midlife?
    13:21 Lifestyle factors that contribute to long life
    23:28 Diet and supplements
    28:16 Building good habits
