Can Bodywork and Counselling work well together? I’ve been pondering on this one for a long time as a therapist and as a client and wrote about it for Counsellors Cafe.

When I was ill last week and I realised it wasn’t going away my response was to
1. Freak out
2. Start asking my fave experts what to do.
I tried loads of stuff, not much shifted really .... resignation... followed by surrender... until I started to look for inside answers. In my case this is body meditation, journaling and drawing and that’s when things started to shift.

Reflecting on it now, I can see that the panic reaction is to look outside, the growthful reaction is to look within. This is why Menstrual Medicine Circles are such a valuable resource, we ask a question and the answers just float up from within. Magic!

Hi, do you have a friend who could really benefit from a day retreat to rest and find out where she is in her menopause process? Perhaps she wouldn’t take time for herself, maybe she’s struggling and things are getting rocky in her journey. You can pay it forward by nominating her for a free place on Love Your Menopause All you have to do is email me with her name and contact details before 8th October. kate.codrington@gmail.com

Menstrual cycle awareness has wonderful benefits for creativity, especially in perimenopause.

More feedback from my brilliant Menstrual Medicine Circle clients...
“When Kate mentioned that she was looking for volunteers for the menopause medicine training she was undertaking, I was somewhat intrigued, so put myself forward.

It needs to be understood that I am not really a red tent kind of woman, I don’t chart my cycle despite the fact that I am still experiencing bleeds, whilst eager for this whole peri / menopausal phase to be completed.

With this in mind, I had no idea what to expect other than Kate being briefed that I wouldn’t be discussing menstruation!

Kate would guide me through a seasonal landscape after a few moments of focusing on the breath and I was then invited to choose where I needed or felt drawn to start.

At no point was anything imposed on me and as a result, an interesting array of insights, metaphors and possibilities arose each time from the seasonal landscapes we visited (with me narrating whilst deep in a meditative place).

Kate would capture all I shared and then reflect this back to me – we would discuss it and again, she did not press meaning on my experience. It was left for me to draw my own conclusions or course of action from each experience, perhaps even to sit with it for a few days to see what unfolded.

Initially, I was unsure yet I was expertly navigated by Kate and always felt that firm boundaries were created which allowed for a feeling of confidence and safety.

It has given me a wider perspective of meaning – a map of sorts, and even now, the notes taken from our sessions still provide much to reflect upon.

I would recommend this to any woman who feels the need to create a fresher outlook on the changes she is experiencing within body, mind and emotions due to peri / menopause. It’s a challenging phase and support like this is precious.”
