Our menstrual health can have a big impact on our lives, and our busy lives can have a big impact on our menstrual health. The challenge is to find some balance; easier said than done when we're dealing with PMT and menstruation is erratic or painful.
I can help you find your own individual balance through cycle literacy, mentoring and massage.
I also offer group workshops on menstrual health, reclaiming menarche (first bleed), and holding circles for women and girls. My mentoring service is for women who wish to explore and heal their menstrual cycles, either in person in Frome, Somerset, or via Zoom and email.
Please contact me to find out how I may serve you, and sign up for my newsletter to hear about future workshops and events.
Well Woman Massage
Well Woman / Fertility Massage is a nourishing, beautiful and profound treatment that aims to bring balance and harmony to the reproductive, digestive and sacral areas.
This wonderful abdominal and sacral massage is helpful for women of all ages and stages of life for increasing optimal hormonal and reproductive health.
I am really excited to be offering this service to women as I feel this deepens my practice and brings me back to my beloved roots of being a therapist and bodyworker.
Please get in touch if you would like to book a treatment.
Menstruality is a term coined in 2001 by Jane Catherine Severn (a psychotherapist from New Zealand) to refer to the life journey from menarche (first period), through the menstruating years into menopause and beyond. The psychospritual development of women can be expressed by the "4 M's" of Menarche, Menstrual Cycle Years, Menopause and Mature Life. Each of these stages of development are brought about by hormonal changes and bring with them unique challenges and gifts.
If you are struggling with aspects of your cycle (physical symptoms and/or feelings of unease or disconnection) or you would just like to explore how your cycle affects you personally on an emotional/spiritual level, then working with this concept of menstruality is a key to unlocking your potential and deepening your understanding of your own unique rhythms and gifts. I have completed the year long Women's Quest apprenticeship training (now the Red School) with Alexandra Pope, an intense and transformational journey into menstruality, and am now able to offer other women support on their own journey.
Journey of Young Women - Mentoring and Circles for Girls
The Journey of Young Women offers fun and informative mentoring circles for girls to enable them to explore important topics in an enjoyable, nurturing and guided environment with their peers.
Along with an experienced teacher colleague of mine, I offer a series of regular girls circles focusing on topics such as assertiveness, emotional intelligence, puberty, menstruation and sexual health.
Please get in touch for more details, or sign up here for my newsletter to keep informed of events and workshops.
In 2015 I travelled through the Four Seasons Journey with the School of Shamanic Womancraft. This course is a healing journey in itself as well as training women to 'midwife' others through their own process of healing and rebirth using shamanic practices. I now offer assistance to women with exploring their journey through the various trials and challenges of life and honouring the potent initiation points of menarche (first bleed), birth and menopause which are of vital importance to our emotional development .
Please get in touch if you'd like find out more.
Shamanic Womancraft is the art of midwifing transformation. The School of Shamanic Womancraft creates the opportunity for women to find within themselves the skills and abilities needed to midwife transformation for others on their journeys.
