212 - How to thrive at work during the menopause

This episode looks at how hormone changes impact women in the workplace and in their personal lives – and why do many women put their own needs last? Dr Louise is joined by Dr Claire Kaye, an executive career coach and former GP specialising in perimenopause and menopause in the workplace. Dr Claire explains how career coaching can help bring about clarity and focus, particularly when you’re dealing with physical and psychological symptoms during the perimenopause and menopause. And both Dr Claire and Dr Louise offer advice on how to navigate these changes and overcome negative emotions to prioritise your own health and wellbeing. Dr Claire’s top three tips for building self-esteem: Recognise what it is that you’re feeling, take a few minutes to work out what it is that’s an issue for you at the time and label it Ask yourself ‘what might help here?’ or ‘who might help here?’ Pick one really simple thing that will help and feels really comfortable: and do it.
