Maybe you think or know peri-menopause has started for you, but you feel confused about what to do now?

Perhaps you’re unsure where you’re at with it, but you’re fearful of what you’ve already heard about mental and physical symptoms, and want some supportive advice?

Perhaps you are at post-menopause, and you thought it would all be fine by now, but you’re still not quite feeling yourself?

You’re not daft, you know there’s no magic bullet. But if someone could just give you the support you need, you’d feel less alone and more reassured that menopause isn’t going to derail you.


  • Need more information or different approaches
  • Confused with all the information around
  • Need Manageable strategies that work for you
  • You want to gain more insight into your personal experience.
  • You are looking for ways of being well that are easy to do.


Now is an excellent time to gather knowledge and confidence and take empowering strides towards a heightened sense of wellness within this time of your life and the BEST thing is that you do not have to do this alone.


Join us at The Wellness Barn, Swanston for a small group one day retreat that will:

       Give  an opportunity to learn with  an experienced Menopause Coach who will  guide you through her Whole Woman Wellness method. Developed from 8 years of working with women at menopause, this method will help you to feel more confident and in control of your physical and mental wellbeing now, and for the future. Session will be delivered by Angie Garton. 

–  Introduce you to acupressure points and a tapping practice plus an insight to how acupuncture and visceral manipulation can support the body mind relationship. This session will be supported by take home information for home practice to reduce anxiety and stress. Session will be delivered by Man Yuen.

      Offer a talk about natural remedies that can provide support with the various symptoms and experiences as you transition to your new state of being. This session will include the opportunity to make and to make home your own blend of plant essences.  Session will be delivered by Gillian Robartes.

–     Offer a yoga and mindfulness practice to help support the mind body connection. The practice will be one for all levels and delivered in a way that you can take it home to work with elements that arise from being in or approaching menopause. Session will be delivered by Emma Heald.

      To conclude the day retreat you will be offered a soothing Relaxation Sound Bath using a range of singing bowls and instruments. This is intended as a gentle way to let your mind and body rest, to soak up the calming energy before returning home.
