Menopause training

Equipping you with the skills to create a menopause-friendly workplace where everyone feels heard and supported

As a society we don’t talk about menopause enough. Especially not at work.

But things are changing… and at AV Wellbeing we believe this can’t come soon enough. Because, let’s face it, 50% of us will experience menopause at some point in our lives and, even if we’re not directly affected ourselves, our friends, family members and colleagues will be.

We offer a range of training and support, from a half-day comprehensive overview of all things menopause-related, to bitesize sessions on specific topics such as nutrition and health.

All of our courses are accredited by the Menopause Experts group and are perfect for those wanting to gain knowledge and skills to support themselves or others.

Menopause in the workplace (half-day)

This half-day course is the ultimate menopause overview, covering everything from exactly what menopause is to workplace legislation surrounding the subject.

It’s designed not just for those experiencing menopause but for anyone who’d like to be armed with the facts and skills to effectively support their colleagues.

Topics covered include:

An introduction to the biological processes involved

Menopause symptoms and the impact they can have on people’s lives

How to support people to have open conversations, and the importance of this

Practical changes that can make things easier within the workplace

Legislation - what legal obligations exist? What protections do those experiencing menopause have in the workplace?

The benefits of developing a menopause policy for your organisation

Through interactive discussions and real-life case studies you’ll develop an understanding of the huge difference a supportive workplace can make and why it’s about so much more than policies and procedures.

The course is licensed by the Menopause Experts group, and businesses who complete it will receive Menopause Expert Approved status. CPD points are also available for all attendees.

Health and the Menopause

The chance to study the reproductive system, hormones and the impact they can have on everyday life.

The session focuses not just on oestrogen and progesterone but the other hormones that also play a crucial part at this time of life.

It will also focus on ways to alleviate symptoms, exploring the different types of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) as well as natural alternatives, and the impact of looking after your health and wellbeing.

The sessions are designed to provide a safe space for open discussion, with a chance for people to share their own experiences if they feel comfortable.

You’ll leave armed with all the information you need to have open, productive conversations about the menopause, whether that’s with friends, family, colleagues or health professionals.

There’ll be an introduction to phytoestrogens and the foods that contain them, as well as information on midlife weight gain and how to manage it.

Psychology and the Menopause

The menopause can have a huge impact not just on physical health but also on your emotional health.

This session will focus on the psychological impact of hormones, exploring the chemical changes that are happening in the brain.

From anxiety and depression to sleep deprivation and loss of self-confidence, participants will begin to understand why they feel the way they do and be able to share their experiences with others.

You’ll learn how to menopause-proof relationships and explore self-help methods like mindfulness and thought-balancing. There’ll also be information on who to reach out to for further professional help if needed and how to broach these conversations.
