I’m one of those weird people who enjoys public speaking, especially when it’s about menopause. What I really love though, is giving YOU a chance to have your say, ask the questions, share your experiences and feel less alone in that. 

I’ve been doing this work since 2016. I’ve learned how to talk about “it” in a way that not only makes everyone feel at ease, but also makes them laugh and smile too – while giving out lots of useful advice.

Previous events have included ‘menopause mingle’ get-togethers, speaking at wellbeing events, and workshops for groups of various sizes from 6 to 50+.

More recently, I’m providing consultation services to businesses and organisations. Because menopause doesn’t happen only in the convenience of our homes! It has fast become a topic to be discussed at work, from both an employee and employer perspective.

Just in case that would be useful to you, I’ve given some examples of how this could work below.

If you’re interested in learning more about how I could help you, or those you work with, send me an email (

I’d love to have a chat to see how I can help.

(Don’t worry about your location, I’ll either come to you or we can find a way around it with technology – I have two baked bean tins and a loooooong piece of string!)

I’m currently working on…

Alongside working with one to one and group clients, I’m currently providing consultancy services to a leading Scottish social care charity (Cornerstone) as the menopause specialist for their ‘Menopause Awareness Project’.

This is a two year project in which I’m working with ‘The People Portfolio’ to create and deliver comprehensive online resources to support all staff.


I also provide regular ‘Relaxation Sound Bath’ sessions in the East Lothian and Edinburgh area. Follow me on Eventbrite for details
