The Retreater

The Menopause Retreat

About The Retreat

The Menopause can feel like a daunting time  where everything that was certain becomes uncertain. With the hormonal changes taking place emotionally it is a difficult time for so many, lack of sleep and bodily changes exacerbate the sense of uncontrolled change taking place. There is so much information online with conflicting advice, not knowing where to turn or who to listen to is exhausting. We bring the experts to you, in a safe and honest environment, tackling embarrassing symptoms and bringing a sense of sisterhood and togetherness. You are not alone on this journey, we are all on the same page, self immersion and workshops designed to put you back in control, taking back your feminine power. From the moment you agree to being a part of the New Beginnings experience, you are putting yourself, your health and your menopause journey onto the right track.
