Menopause & Relationships

Taking the pause out of Menopause

Great relationships are at the heart of every success story

Reclaiming work and relationships during and after the Menopause

Relationships are at the heart of every success story, whether they be at work or at home. Our ability to seek, develop and nurture relationships is a critical part of being human. Yet during Menopause, our ability to interact can decrease significantly.
This book shows you how to identify and use your resources to successfully create, nurture and sustain effective relationships during your transition through Menopause to the second phase of your womanhood – with yourself, at work, with family and with your partner – present or new.
Are you ready to take control of your future?
In an ever-connected world, our ability to create, develop and maintain relationships has never been more critical, both at work and in our personal lives. They offer a network of support, inform our perception of the world around us and generate opportunities.
The Menopause can be all consuming, changing our sense of self and affecting our ability to identify, maintain and develop relationships just at the time we need them most. Yet it needn’t be that way.
Your Second Phase is about defining who you are now and who you will be as you become a post-Menopausal woman, where you want to be and who you want to be with. This transition phase of your life is an incredible opportunity. Let’s take the pause out of the Menopause.
