Brook is proud to announce that the FREE 1:1 programme for those experiencing menopause in the workplace is now available for self-referral.
Women and other people experiencing menopause can now self refer for support in retainment in or return to the workplace.
DID YOU KNOW...?
Roughly 80% of women experience symptoms related to the menopause, with 25% having severe symptoms that detrimentally affect their family, home and work life.
Menopause can be a challenging time for many women and people with vaginas. It's often reduced to hot flushes, but for the majority of women it’s a lot more than that. Other symptoms may include anxiety, brain fog, overactive bladder, insomnia and vaginal dryness, to name a few. In fact, it's often the emotional effects, which are less talked about, that are more debilitating than the physical effects.
HOW CAN BROOK HELP?
This year we’re launching a Menopause Wellbeing Programme in Cornwall called MyLife.
Through a series of one-to-one sessions with one of our trained Women’s Health Specialists, you will be equipped with the knowledge, skills and values to understand what the menopause means for you and ways to self-manage your symptoms and changes to relationships, work and self.
Each session is tailored to exploring your personal and unique experience of menopause; your symptoms and ways it’s affecting your life. Our Brook specialists, trained on the topic of menopause, offer advice, guidance and a listening ear to help you develop support mechanisms that suit you best.
At the end of the sessions, you will come away with:
- An improved understanding of the menopause and how it affects you
- An understanding of the importance of self-care and getting support, including recognising and seeking professional support when it is needed
- A plan of positive actions to improve your symptoms that draw upon your strengths
- Access to a range of tools that will help monitor and support your mental health and wellbeing
