S1E3 From Stigma to Empowerment: Changing the Conversation on Menopause and Mental Health through Private Practice

In this episode, ‘From Stigma to Empowerment: Changing the Conversation on Menopause and Mental Health through Private Practice’ Dr. Becky Quicke and Simona Stokes share their experiences of how working in the public sector didn't work well for them when going through menopausal changes, and how it led them to pursue private practice. They discuss the changes in energy distribution and availability for women going through peri-menopause and menopause, and how to change your lifestyle to better serve this new energy.

The conversation also touches on the dearth of research in women's health, particularly around menopause and mental health. Dr. Becky and Simona share their expertise on the subject and discuss how their innovative approaches to menopause psychology are challenging the stigma and transforming the narrative on menopause and mental health.

Join us as we explore how they are changing the conversation on menopause and mental health through private practice and breaking the mould in their field.
