Nic PendregaustIntegrative therapist
Feeling overwhelmed, stressed & crippled with anxiety? Fed up & frustrated with a fuzzy head, forgetfulness, feeling tired & wired & low mood.
Noticing your confidence has taken a nosedive, your self-esteem at rock bottom? A sense your identity, values & purpose have shifted.
I can support you with your perimenopause/menopause symptoms, issues & challenges. To explore your current peri or post-menopausal experiences, situation, and problems, understand the impact on your emotional health, relationships, self-confidence, self-esteem, sense of identity, purpose & professional career life.
Together, we can explore the impact of your fluctuating hormones on your thoughts, feelings, emotions & behaviours. I can help you make sense of your menopause symptoms so that you are able to feel less stressed, manage your anxiety & overwhelm, feel you can cope better, sleep better, rebuild your confidence & reclaim your identity, so you can re-connect with your strong resilient self.
I can also support you, in looking at how past traumas can raise their heads during perimenopause & menopause, leading to thoughts, feelings & emotions that may leave you feeling like you are going crazy.
I will support you with a ‘toolkit’ of strategies to manage your menopause symptoms & cope with difficult feelings, emotions & anxieties, helping you to better navigate this time of psychological & physical change.
We'll be using the EMBERS® model - based on principles from CBT, neuroscience, positive psychology, and lifestyle medicine, designed to help you get back in the driving seat and start feeling your best. With EMBERS®, you'll discover how to harness the power of your mind, body, and spirit to support your health and wellbeing.
