Why do this course? – ‘there is so much out there now for women of this age’, YES! isn’t it brilliant that there has been a huge surge of awareness and information in the mainstream about the challenges women face at this stage of life.

The difference in this course is that it has been designed with the busy woman in mind. Instead of having to wade through all the information out there, what is shared has been chosen as it provides you with the core basics of wellbeing, you will be able to create your ‘wellbeing foundation’, be in a supportive group, connecting with other women, receiving effective information from experts in their field, have lifetime access to the recordings and get an opportunity to ask questions to the specialist teachers.
