Menopause - How to support women in the workplace

Lucy Atkinson

Although nearly 8 out of 10 menopausal women are in work, 10% of them will leave their jobs due to the menopause.

Women in their 40s, 50s and 60s have so much to offer; still a way to go before retirement but with all that wisdom, knowledge and experience built up over the years. What a font of skill and capability; mentors, leaders, the backbone of a company’s support, and role models for younger team members.

59% of women say it has a negative impact on their work; nearly 80% experience hot flushes and/or sweats. Many women will be struggling with disrupted sleep and the tiredness and associated stress that accompanies that.

What many people don’t realise is that these symptoms start with the perimenopause; the period of time that can last years as a woman’s hormones are changing, and that lead to these symptoms. This usually starts between the ages of 45 and 55 for most women.

In this seminar Lucy will cover

  • Stories about menopause
  • What is it even for?
  • Signs, symptoms and diagnosis
  • Overview of treatment
  • Dealing with anxiety and mood swings
  • Sleep
  • Support in the workplace

Lucy is a hypnotherapist, life coach, speaker and author with a passion for supporting women to be the best they can be, and make the changes that will lead to a more balanced, harmonious life.
