Menopause and CBT

Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for menopausal symptoms is an evidenced-based and non-medical intervention to introduce coping skills and useful strategies to help manage and reduce the impact on daily life. The intervention is a practical skills-based training course developed by clinical psychologists to be delivered by health professionals.

The intervention is appropriate for women who are experiencing symptoms due to:

  • Natural pre and post menopause.
  • Surgery or treatment that induces or emphasises the symptoms.
  • For whom HRT is not appropriate.
  • Diagnosed premature menopause (those under 40 years of age).

Our small, group CBT intervention is delivered by our menopause associates. Each session lasts one-and-a-half hours and takes place over four weeks. In addition, you will receive a CBT handbook with guidance along with the option of a follow-up support session to discuss and assess the strategies in your everyday life.

The four-week course is delivered on Tuesday evenings between 19:15- 20:45 in Wilmslow, Cheshire.

For businesses or menopause/special interest groups we are able to deliver a course overview onsite, arranged on request.

Menopause and Family

The menopausal transition is not just a women's issue. In our experience the partners of women suffering moderate to severe symptoms feel at a loss of what to do or how to help due to overall lack of knowledge or discussion on this issue.
