WRC - Turning Meno-pause into Mega-Pause; Menopause Awareness Raising for Therapists

Presenters Bio:

Breeda Bermingham is a social entrepreneur, founder of the MidlifeWomen Rock Project and Cafes (2019). She is on a mission to disruptthe way menopause has been constructed for decades and spotlightthe opportunities, second chances, access to deep creativity, personalgrowth, self-actualization, courage, and confidence that are allavailable to women, once supported at Midlife.Having worked with women for years as a midwife and public health nurse, Breeda returned to fulltime education completing a psychology degree in 2018 followed by a sociology masters in 2020.Herresearch interest is Midlife Women, Menopause and Leadership.

Perplexed by the massive lack ofeducation and information she set up the Midlife Women Rock cafes in 2019 in Ireland to gatherwomen in safe spaces to discuss menopause and share stories.

She coaches women individually and ingroup settings focusing on symptom management along with the positive aspects of menopausetransition. The taboo around menopause continues to limit and disempower women in their middleyears. It It has to be removed in order to enable women to thrive.
There is NO shame in being amenopausal woman in 2021.
