WOMEN'S MENTAL HEALTH

WHY SEEK COUNSELLING FOR PERIMENOPAUSE/MENOPAUSE?

While the menopause transition is a natural phenomenon, the psychological impact is often underreported and unfortunately, undertreated.  Most women have no ideal what to expect.  No two experiences are the same. 

Menopause can also appear at a time when women are dealing with other challenges and life transitions.  Aging, retirement, growing children, grief and loss, past trauma, health concerns and relationship issues to name a few.  It is for these reasons we benefit from taking a Holistic approach, which takes into consideration one's mental, emotional, spiritual, physical and social wellbeing.

 

Some of the challenges associated with menopause are:

  • difficulty coping 

  • anxiety

  • depression

  • irritability

  • relationship issues

  • hot flashes

  • changing body

  • fear of aging

  • grief and loss

  • cognitive changes
