This short course will take a holistic look at the menopause and explore natural ways of support yourself during this time.
This course is for anyone who is looking to find out more about what happens during the menopause and the various symptoms that can arise during this time. It aims to help people find ways to support themselves or others around them, and ways to manage symptoms during this time of change.
The course will look at ways to support yourself through the four pillars of health: nutrition, exercise, stress reduction and sleep. It will consider ways you can adapt to your body’s changing needs. The course will also look at symptom management and the option of HRT as well as alternatives.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
· recognise what happens at menopause
· identify the four pillars of health and how to use these to support yourself or others through the menopause
· recognise symptom management options available

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.
Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.
