Some may go through it without a hitch. Others will feel like their life is falling apart. But one way or the other…50% of the world’s population will go through it. So why then, do women know so little about Perimenopause? Join Ava Kanaye, a certified Health Coach with an interest in Women’s Wellness, in a conversation about what is Perimenopause and Menopause and what can you do to support yourself through this roller coaster stage of life.
About the Event
I spent my 20s and 30s like any other young woman… partying, socialising, dating, building a high-powered career. I smoked, I drank, I ate what I wanted when I wanted, I slept very little, and I didn’t have a care in the world. I’ve always been ‘’very together’’ and my friends and colleagues admired me for being in charge of my life.
In my 40s, as a Corporate Legal Executive at one of the Big 4 banks in South Africa, I suddenly started experiencing the worst anxiety ever. The weight started to pile on, I was moody and depressed, and I started feeling completely out of control. My male doctor laughed at me, poo-pooed the idea that I may be entering Perimenopause, put it down to my stressful job and immediately prescribed anti-depressants to manage the anxiety. I forced myself to continue life at full speed, giving 200% to everything that I did.
In the midst of it all, I gave up my career, left my family & friends and shifted countries. I took a gap year and decided I needed to slow down; I followed my passion and became a certified holistic health coach. My life was slowly getting back on track until one day, I found myself in the middle of Albert Heijn with tears streaming down my face and I had no idea why.
WTF was going on with my Body???
Since then, I have been on a journey of discovery and redirecting the focus of my coaching practice to help Women through their Mid-Life Madness.
Join me in conversation as I unpack what is Perimenopause and how can you open yourself up to getting the right support you need to help yourself through this journey.
