‘Three quarters of women in the UK say that the menopause has caused them to change their life and more than half say it has had a negative impact on their lives. 47% who have needed to take a day off work due to menopause symptoms say they wouldn’t tell their employer the real reason.’ British Menopause Society, bms.org.uk 

A womans relationship with menopause is complicated and often not talked about. This is an opportunity  for women to use the creative arts to explore their feelings around this life changing, off ignored,  part of a womans life. 

Art Therapy is a psychotherapy that uses the art to address emotional and behavioural issues alongside a trained professional. It can help you express thoughts and feelings and can be another way of communicating when its hard to talk. Art Therapy can help with issues including, stress, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, relationship issues, bereavement and low self esteem.

You do not need to be good at art to benefit, this is not an art class. Regular attendance is important.

Fiona Fitzpatrick is a fully qualified, registered therapist with Health Care Professions Council and an EMDR Practitioner.
