The menopause sessions I had with Jane were tremendously helpful. I have been struggling with hot flushes, night sweats and other symptoms that I did not even realise were caused by the menopause. Working with Jane helped me focus on my symptoms and what I could work on to improve how I was feeling. Jane put together a detailed action plan to help me manage the symptoms and move forward. Thank you Jane; if I had not attended these sessions I would still be struggling, but working with you has given me the push to make the needed changes.
I really enjoyed your presentation, it certainly helped to focus my mind on what steps we all, as individuals, can take to try to help ourselves.
I do share my menopause journey with my close friends, it has helped me and I’m sure also helped them. Well done for founding Hot Women at Menopause and also for all your ongoing time and hard work in promoting it. It is a very important topic not only for Women but I feel Men also. If we are ignorant about the changes that can and do affect our bodies and the impact these changes bring, it’s an almost impossible ask to expect our men folk to be supportive and understanding. Or for that matter, others close to us

I needed to write to say thank you. I have been struggling with my symptoms for a long time, some of which l didn’t even realise were symptoms, the worst ones for me being the flushes/night sweats, migraines and especially joint pain. Some mornings l wake feeling like I’ve gone twelve rounds with Tyson Fury, having to literally peel myself out of bed and crying out in pain. Today you provided the information l needed to understand the symptoms I’m experiencing in a knowledgeable, sympathetic yet fun filled and light hearted way… You were a true breath of fresh air! I never thought l would be laughing out loud at what has always been considered such a taboo subject… Thank you for that. It was so nice to leave feeling almost ‘normal’, I’ll never be that!, but to feel more positive than l have felt since my hysterectomy two years ago was liberating. Anyway, l just wanted to say thank you so much for your amazing talk today, you’ve truly changed my outlook on life and surviving the menopause! With heartfelt thanks.

I feel privileged to have worked with you, Jane. The coaching you have provided has enabled me to develop my own professional leadership skills, while also working collaboratively towards whole school improvement. Your experience, guidance and coaching approach has been refreshing and motivating, during an otherwise challenging term. You have been a welcome asset who has made significant changes and positive impacts to me as an individual and to our school. It has been a pleasure to work with you, learn from you, and you have provided inspiration. Thank you for all your support, encouragement and for enabling me to further develop as a leader, it has been great to have such a role model to look up to, too!”

What a fantastic experience. I met with Jane because I wanted to explore how I was feeling about my job, my future career and how my home life fitted in with both of these things. At the beginning of the meeting we agreed the aims of the session. Jane helped me to evaluate and prioritise what is really important to me as I enter the next stage of my professional life. She asked the right questions, and gave me the space and guidance to focus my mind and arrive at my own answers. By the end of our time together I had a clear set of actions to help me to achieve my goals. I would highly recommend Jane to any professional, in any industry who needs clarity on what they really want from their career and needs a push in the right direction to achieve it.

Thank you Jane for all your expert help. You listened to my personal experiences of the menopause, and were able to advise me of the different options I could take to make my menopause journey smoother. There was no pressure to take a particular route, which I really appreciated. The wealth of information you shared with me and recommended was fantastic. Your time, patience and understanding has enabled me to feel so much more confident and positive at this time in my life.
