just your friendly neighbourhood period pal
I’m a menstrual cycle awareness coach who helps people with periods to understand and navigate the emotional ups and downs of having a uterus.
So, what exactly does that mean…
I support people with periods who are struggling with the less-than-desirable side effects of going through their monthly(ish) cycle.
I help people to
calm their premenstrual anger
cope with premenstrual anxiety
increase their self esteem
set healthy boundaries
deal with negative thoughts
find effective coping strategies
It almost feels like I fell into this work by accident
I used to be a person who really didn’t understand themselves. Why did I feel great one minute then anxious the next? Why did I feel so confident, then have some kind of nervous breakdown? Why was I so up and down all the time? Was there something wrong with me?
I was listening to a podcast one day (way back in 2015) when I heard about this thing called menstrual cycle awareness. As I listened I felt so seen. It was as if my whole life was being described to me. For the first time in my life I felt like there wasn’t something wrong with me. I wasn’t crazy or broken – I was misunderstood.
In that moment everything fell into place. My existence suddenly made so much more sense. And so, I practiced this thing called “menstrual cycle awareness”. Within a few months I was able to pinpoint a pattern. A really fucking predictable pattern! One that I wished someone had told me about years before.
that’s when I knew I had to start shouting about this life changing stuff
Since then I’ve had dozens of conversations with people who also wished someone had taught them what it means to have a menstrual cycle from the very beginning.
After monitoring my cycle for the last couple of months… I know where I am with it now.
