The years leading up to menopause, known as the peri-menopause, can be scary, confusing, anxiety provoking, exhausting and a time of change within our bodies, home, work and social life. No wonder we can feel like we are losing our mind!!
I can offer counselling, coaching and CBT that will help you navigate these years of your life and give you back a sense of control, passion and purpose. The peri-menopause can start at any age but is more common from age 40 onwards.
Sessions for counselling and coaching cost £40 per session (one hour)
I can offer a 6-week CBT programme that specifically helps you to manage hot flushes and night sweats, but that has also been shown to reduce anxiety and depression. Each session costs £75 and lasts up to 90minutes - total cost of the programme therefore being £450. Worksheets than can be used and referred to again in the future are provided as part of the course. If you want to do this with a friend or small group of friends to reduce the individual cost please contact me and we can discuss this option.
If you are considering HRT, or any other prescribed medication for peri-menopause symptoms, I have been a British Menopause Society trained specialist since 2011 and this is my main medical work in the private sector. I’d be delighted to help you if you have been unable to get the necessary help, support or advice from your NHS GP, or if you simply want the luxury of a 45minute holistic assessment, review and plan.
Due to insurance purposes my medical menopause work is currently done through RoC Private Clinic Aberdeen, both remotely and in-person... for further information and to book please go to https://rocprivateclinic.com/clinicians/samantha-whiteside/
