Menopause can be overwhelming. Sleeplessness, hot flushes, irritability, low mood, brain fog, loss of libido, headaches, joint pain, poor memory and concentration, exhaustion and loss of confidence are all very common symptoms.

I hold the British Menopause Society Faculty of Reproductive Healthcare Special Skills certificate in Menopause care (Advanced) - meaning I am a registered menopause specialist and have provided independent menopause clinics since 2012.

At Menopause Expert Ltd all women can be accommodated – including progestogen intolerance, post cancer and early menopause/POI.

Browsing Kathies website on a laptopMenopause can be devastating for some women. It often occurs at a time in life when they are juggling lots of competing roles – elderly parents with failing health, teen/adult children worries, possibly caring for grandchildren as well as doing their own job.

I’ve met many women who simply stop coping. Through fatigue from sleeplessness and anxiety about severe flushes they lose a sense of self and become withdrawn…isolated….depressed. Libido disappears.

Relationships suffer, and breakdown. Many women walk away from their career.

Some women are plunged into menopause overnight – possibly after cancer treatments. As well as the significant menopause symptoms and treatment side effects, they have the emotional rollercoaster of their cancer diagnosis to contend with.

And younger women, who may not have started, or completed, their family, can enter early menopause. Their situation is complicated by the emotional burden of adjusting to a different future. Long-term heart and bone health can be another worry. Menopause Expert Liverpool supports all women to make fully informed choices about their menopause.

All women can be accommodated – including progestogen intolerance, post cancer and those diagnosed with early menopause/premature insufficiency.

After being undiagnosed and feeling helpless and low for so long I almost lost hope. I felt that I would just have to put up with this life changing event and get on with it because the advice I was given was “it’s natural to feel like this at your age, all women go through menopause, just get on with it”. Trying to get HRT was an uphill battle, nobody would listen to me, and I found it so hard to advocate for myself as my confidence was so low. Then I found Kathie. Kathie is a bright light at the end of a very dark tunnel, and I can’t thank her enough. She listened, without judgment, and she understood how I was feeling and what I was going through. Her calmness, gentleness and compassion meant I came away from my appointment filled with confidence that I wasn’t going to have to deal with this on my own anymore.

The prescription was sorted the same day and at a very reasonable cost. Kathie also sent a comprehensive report to myself and my GP, again straight away. This means going forward it’s there in black & white, a detailed & easy to follow treatment plan that my GP will understand and know exactly where I am up to. I haven’t even started with the treatment yet, but I already feel like I have taken back control of my life. Going forward I know Kathie is there to help and guide me through my menopause journey and going forward Kathie will be the person I consult as I know I can trust her, she’s amazing and her knowledge and expertise is so reassuring.
Thank you Kathie!
