Hi, I’m Kerry
I live in a beautiful hamlet in South West France after relocating from the North East of England. Now I’d love to tell you that I exercise every day, eat a vegan diet, meditate daily, blah, blah, you get the picture. However, that’s not me. I do aim to do those those things but I’m just a normal woman with an imperfect life where shit happens and I’m also navigating perimenopause. There’s so much negativity about menopause and it’s almost seen as the end of a woman’s life. She’s dried up, old and useless now right?? Fuck that. Menopause doesn’t have to be a complete shit show and it also doesn’t have to rule your life. It’s all about knowing what works for you, altering your mindset a bit and sorting through the metric shit ton of conflicting information on the internet. (And that’s before everyone and their aunty you bump into says you absolutely have to try the thing they tried).
Here I share balanced and relevant information on my blog as well as offering services to help you get more personalised support and advice such as 1:1 and group coaching. So grab your beverage of choice and have a browse. Drop me a line if you want more info or to set up a call to chat about how coaching could help you.
My blog can help you explore menopause and the different aspects of it such as managing symptoms. So, you know, how to not be a sweaty mess at work, or how not to cry when the woman at the checkout asks you if you want to redeem your points!
There’s also a ton of info on different treatments and how to decide what’s best for you, lifestyle information, nutrition and fitness as well as how to go to work every day without menopause ruining your career. I aim to help you with practical and sustainable support that will support you to continue to do the things you want (and need) to do.
This is what I do. I’m sick of the negativity about menopause and the perception that it’s something old women go through. I don’t know how old you are, but I’m 45 and I feel far from fucking old! This is a new chapter in our lives and we can choose to see it as our death knell, or we can embrace the fact that we can actually now be the no-nonsense, sassy beetach we’ve always been deep down but much more confidently! I’m making no excuses for the times when I feel a bit shit so want to binge-watch Queer Eye with a bottle of wine instead of meeting friends for dinner. This is often a long journey and you’ll be bloody exhausted by the end of it if you try to pretend it’s not happening, don’t seek support or act like your life is the same as it’s always been. Change can be hard but hopefully, I can make it a bit easier.
Dive into the blog and follow me on social media (links at the bottom of the page). I hope you find some useful stuff. Maybe though, you need a bit more help with understanding how menopause is affecting you personally and what sort of things you can do to help and make changes. This could be physical symptoms, relationship issues, your mental health, work issues or all of those things!
That’s where some help with navigating it all might come in handy and having a plan and a listening ear can make all the difference. You can pop across to this page to find out more.
