Exacerbated by a lack of knowledge and negative social attitudes, many women find the Menopause a confusing and uncomfortable phase in their lives. Some have fears and concerns about the impact on their libido, self-esteem, and mental wellbeing, and feel reluctant or embarrassed to speak about the subject directly, often affecting relationships with partners and children. Many GPs also feel uneducated and feel they have little to offer, especially if HRT is unwanted or contraindicated.

    Eileen Bellot, Writer, Health Professional, Speaker & Workshop Facilitator. Eileen founded the Reclaim the Menopause programme in 2012 My work is inspired by the things that make me curious: in 2012 I became curious about why women were embarrassed talking about the Menopause, so started the Reclaim the Menopause Project to allow women the opportunity to start having a dialogue about this important subject. Eileens work creates space that allow people exploration of their mental, physical, spiritual and emotional selves. In 2018 she produced a peer review paper with Emeritus Dr Myra Hunter (Kings College), called Reclaim the Menopause: A pilot study of an evidence-based menopause course for symptom management and resilience building, (Bellot et al), published in Post Reproductive Health a journal for health professionals in Jan 2018. Eileen is currently developing a play called Blood Rites exploring womens rites of passage and the menopause. This email address is being protected from spambots.
