Menopause can be a time of great change and frustration to a lot of women
Weight gain, hot flushes, sleepless nights etc. can combine to make life less than fun but it really doesn’t have to be that way. There are many ways you can help the changes your body is going through to improve symptoms and eating well now can make a big difference to your health in later life.
Come and listen to a talk from qualified nutritional therapist Maggie Thorpe
Maggie will talk about the many ways that food can contribute to helping you through and after menopause. Understanding the process that your body is going or has gone through can be very helpful in accepting the changes.
Knowledge is very empowering and can help you feel in control of what is happening. There is so much conflicting information given that it can be useful to have someone give you clear and concise guidelines that are evidence based.
After menopause is also a time to be knowledgeable about the foods you need to maintain bone health and a healthy hormone level.
Numbers will be limited to allow time for questions.
It can also be great to let off steam with a group of other women who understand exactly what you are going through or can let you know there is life after menopause!
I trained and qualified in 2002 as a nutritional therapy practitioner with the Raworth College of Natural Medicine and the Centre for Nutrition Education. I have worked in private clinical practice since qualifying and attend regular courses and workshops to ensure that my practice knowledge is kept up to date with the latest research.
I have worked closely with the nutritional therapy professional body, BANT, on their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Committee and chaired the committee for 3 years. I also worked on the BANT Supervision programme, as part of the project team that researched and put forward the proposal for the Supervision Programme which is now running successfully across the UK.
I am a qualified college and university lecturer completing my Masters Degree in Higher Education in 2016 where I researched the student experience of blended learning in Nutritional Therapy clinical training. As an educator, I have held a number of roles in lecturing and assessment, clinical and research supervision, module and year leadership and personal tutoring on Diploma, BSc and MSc programmes in Nutritional Therapy. I am also an external assessor for nutritional therapy clinical practice qualifications. Alongside my nutritional therapy role, I also develop and run workshops and training sessions for Adult & Community Learning providers on all aspects of healthy eating and nutrition.
I am also a registered Reflexology practitioner.
