1. Workplace training
Who it’s for: Colleagues, line managers, HR
Delivery: Face-to-face, E-learning (or a combination)
Our workplace training aims to educate and support everyone – the menopausal women, colleagues, line managers and HR staff too.
Menopause really is the elephant in the room, the thing we tip-toe around, and don’t want to mention in case we upset someone, but by facing it and addressing it, everyone involved is empowered; they have what they need to understand, empathise, cope and support.
People we’ve worked with have breathed a sigh of relief – because everyone knows what’s going on. What’s happening, why it’s happening, what to do, what to say and how to offer support.
Knowledge through training prepares and empowers everyone involved, providing confidence, respect and dignity in the workplace.
2. Coaching & Mentoring
Who it’s for: Individuals – men or women, line managers.
Delivery: Telephone, Skype, Zoom or other online service
Tell us what you’re going through, what you need help with and we’ll give you some instant help but also a plan to take forward too.
Sometimes, you just need to speak to someone, offload concerns and reach a workable solution.
Line managers, men and women – we can support you with home life and work life.
You can trust us with your innermost thoughts and challenges – whatever is on your mind, there is nothing you can’t say to us in a secure environment.
Together we will develop your Menopause Action Plan.
3. Online learning
Who it’s for: Individuals – men or women, workplace (staff, line managers, HR)

4. The Book: How To Survive Menopause Without Losing Your Mind
Who it’s for: Everyone!
Delivery: A paperback book delivered to your home
This is the book that’s never been written – until now. All you need to know, chapter by chapter, drawing on Kathryn’s experiences, research and knowledge.
It’s a collection of anecdotes, research and personal recollections exploring Kathryn’s personal experience of ’10 years of menopause hell’ with special focus on HRT, mental health, The Men’s Room and so much more.
The book will guide and help you understand so much.
“It is a book that every women needs to read, every doctor needs to check out and men need to get a handle on it too. It has the potential of saving marriages, lives and sanity!”
5. HR support (collaborations – workshops, policy help etc)
Who it’s for: Human resources professionals
A fully interactive training, workshop for your staff or business associates, plus help with your company employment policies too.
Menopause support needs to be held in the same regard as sickness, pregnancy or bereavement; but all too often it isn’t.
Performance can be affected by menopause but there are solutions. The workshop will take you through the process.
When you understand menopause and its effect on you and your staff, it will contribute to increased productivity, better morale and retention.
We work with HR teams to review current working practices and how to incorporate the new knowledge in an efficient manner.
Are you an SME with no Menopause Policy at all? We can help you create a comprehensive set of policies.
Whether you are an in-house HR department or rely on outsourced services, we can help.
As working practices change (post Covid-19) we will be relying, more than ever, on workplace support.
Who it’s for: Men
Delivery: Telephone, E-learning, Book
Menopause affects the men too and we are here to support them to better understand and support them.
Menopause isn’t just for women and the clue’s in the name – men are right there in it too! The men we speak to say the same things – they don’t know what’s going on, find it unpredictable, feel pushed away, not sure how to help or what to do, don’t recognise their partner any more, want them back and feel like they’re on the outside looking in.
The trouble is, many women are in menopause but don’t even know it – so how would the men know?
It would be great if women and men knew the early signs, were prepared for them and knew how to cope when it all gets quite intense.
This is what we’re working towards and our telephone consultations, workshops, online course and book are all great tools for men to use to start their research so they know what menopause is all about, how to cope and help and what to expect.
7. Workplace research
We undertake research to find out what the menopause landscape looks like – so that we know which direction to take our services and support in.
Here at SimplyHormones, we are keen to know more about views, perceptions and realities of menopause, so that we have the evidence behind us to facilitate change.
For example, past research revealed that that 72% of women feel unsupported at work and 50% are too embarrassed to even talk about it to their boss.
This led us to really focus on workplace training to make sure more women have what they need at work, from colleagues and managers confident in supporting them.
Our current research is looking at what help and support is available in the workplace, what understanding there is and what training and learning can be delivered to make improvements.
