You don’t have to do it alone

Maria was well dressed when she arrived for her appointment.  I knew very little about her, other than she worked in a management role and had just come from her office to mine. She appeared a little cautious and hesitant as we chatted about the easy stuff, like life...

Things we wish our children knew

I was filling out the census form recently (I'm based in Ireland) and right at the end of the form, on the very last page, I spotted a new section entitled Time Capsule. It was such a simple, yet brilliant idea! An invitation to jot down a few words for future...

Getting old sucks! Or does it?

When I was 18, I thought everyone over 23 was old. It turns out that 'old' is always an age a few years out in front of me! These days, I like getting older (I'm 56 at the moment). Sure, it comes with challenges (do you know how long it takes to lose a few lbs after...

Not another Covid Stone

Brenda (not her real name), sat opposite me last June, feeling fed up and upset at how she’d let things slip. She was heading into summer and none of her clothes fit her anymore. She felt fat, frumpy, and frustrated because she’d never been this heavy before and she...

A letter to my 40’something self

I’m 56 years old and finished with menopause a long time ago. I had an early menopause, although I didn’t know it at the time! In my early 40’s, I felt crap. My energy was in my boots and my motivation wasn’t much better, despite pretty good health and decent...

It feels like I’ve been run over by a bus most mornings!

I hear this phrase a lot from women in the clinic and it’s not a great way to start your day! One client, Anne (not her real name), told me she feels exhausted every day and drags herself out of bed most mornings. “I feel stuck to the bed and as though every part of...
