Challenging the Myths on Menopause

“We cannot solve a problem we cannot see, thus the need to create public spaces to open conversations”

Breeda Bermingham

Menopause is evolving! We have brought it into the public domain...Governments, the media, workplaces and greater society are helping break the silence. Normalising conversation along with education and supports changes the lived experience at this life stage

                                       Our  Mission

To ensure all of society are educated and supported around menopause by providing cafes, workshops, presentations, podcasts, e-learning and continue being advocates for change in Ireland.

                                         Our  Vision

Our vision is for every woman globally in and outside of the workplace to have equal access to menopause education and support.

I am a former midwife and public health nurse, a psychology(2018) and sociology masters graduate (2020) . My dissertation was titled “Silence, Taboo and Midlife Women” which involved in depth interviewing of women here in Ireland on their experiences and understandings of menopause.

I am on a mission to tell a new story about menopause as the old story has not served women’s best interests. The silencing and shaming of menopausal women has to stop. It’s time to speak up!

Book a free 20 minute call with me to explore if I can help.

I work with women transitioning through perimenopause and  menopause. The first consultation explores where the client is at and how best we may be able to work together.

A detailed questionnaire is completed prior to our first consultation. A collaborative plan is then outlined taking account of the clients lifestyle, past history, and symptoms.

All available options to manage symptoms are discussed and clients are signposted to relevant providers if needed.

During initial consults many women tell me they want to get their old self back. I tell them I am not the person who can do that. However, what I can do and what I am good at doing is assisting women find a new woman within, a woman who is stronger, more powerful, creative and self- aware. If you are curious and would like to find that new woman, I would love to hear from you.
