Fundamentally open conversations and visibility are the fastest way to explode taboo subjects.
I was very happy to present my research on menopause “Silence Taboo and Midlife Women”(2020) to the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy(IACP) at Trinity College Dublin this summer.
The massive vacum in education and signposting for supports, leads to a grave misunderstanding of the menopausal transition.
The IACP in including menopause in their annual conference programme, are leading the way for other organisations.
Normalising the menopause conversation in society is where we need to be moving towards.
