A BIT ABOUT ME...

Hi There, I'm Vivienne,

I'm not just a certified nutritionist, but a 53-year-old Certified Menopause Coaching Specialist who's living the perimenopause journey.

Hot flashes, joint pain, weight gain, anxiety, mood swings. Trust me, I’ve been there.

My own experiences with perimenopause fuels my passion for helping women who feel they've 'tried everything'.

My approach? It's not just what to eat; it's learning your body’s new language, managing symptoms, knowing what to ask your doctors, and finding the right natural supplements.

MY STORY

How it all started

With over 20 years of expertise in healthcare as a Registered Nurse and Midwife, along with a BSc (Hons), I've been dedicated to guiding women through their unique health and nutrition journeys across various life stages.

My extensive experience has been centered around empowering women with knowledge and care, helping them navigate through major phases of their lives.

I always thought I'd sail smoothly through perimenopause, escaping the symptoms

I'd heard so many women talk about.

But when I turned 50, everything changed.

I was hit with joint pain - a symptom I'd never known before. Increased anxiety & I felt like a stranger in my own body. I felt isolated and alone, looking for answers.

With over 20 years of expertise in healthcare as a Registered Nurse and Midwife, along with a BSc (Hons), I've been dedicated to guiding women through their unique health and nutrition journeys across various life stages. My extensive experience has been centered around empowering women with knowledge and care, helping them navigate through major phases of their lives.

I always thought I'd sail smoothly through perimenopause, escaping the symptoms I'd heard so many women talk about.

But when I turned 50, everything changed.

I was hit with joint pain - a symptom I'd never known before.

Increased anxiety & I felt like a stranger in my own body, and I started looking for answers.

And that's where my story takes a turn...

I immersed myself in research and perimenopause nutrition, dedicating many hours to sorting through conflicting advice that’s out there.

This journey was sparked by my own personal experiences, leading me to seek deeper knowledge in this area.

Driven by these experiences, I pursued further education to become a Certified Menopause Coach Specialist.

Now, equipped with both personal understanding and professional training, I am dedicated to helping other women navigate their way through perimenopause and menopause.

ARE YOU READY FOR CHANGE?

Learn How I Can Help You Navigate Perimenopause and Menopause Easier

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED...

"Why am I gaining weight during menopause?"

I understand firsthand how eating needs have to change during perimenopause. We are worth so much more than the oversimplified notion of "calories in versus calories out".

It's more complicated now!

"Why do perimenopause symptoms come and go?"

Now, more than ever it's essential to recognise your individual needs with diet, stress, sleep & exercise to help with perimenopause & menopause symptoms.

"Are menopause supplements safe?"

NO, they are NOT always safe. I'll give you the truth behind supplements. You'll stop wasting money on products that promise weight loss and symptom relief but do NOT deliver.

"What supplements can I take for perimenopause?"

The supplement industry is NOT regulated and these "magic" supplements are often targeted at us. I'll share which supplements are actually safe (especially if you're on prescribed medication) and help with perimenopause.

"Why do perimenopause symptoms come and go?"

Get a clear explanation of how hormone changes in perimenopause cause your symptoms to shift.

"what to ask & how to talk to my doctor about menopause."

Furthermore, I'll help you to engage in informed conversations with healthcare providers.

20-Minute “Ask Vivienne” Session

This is an ideal chance for us to connect and get a clearer picture of your current situation, especially as it relates to your perimenopause or menopause journey.

We'll use this time to understand the unique challenges and changes you're experiencing and explore how I can best support you with tailored nutrition and lifestyle guidance.
