What women are saying:
Just wanted to give you feedback that the latest herbs you mixed up for me are AMAZING. I have felt so much clearer mentally the past two weeks than I have in months and months.
I think your little bush flower remedy is working also because I don't feel quite as directionless.
I always saw money and career opportunities as something that I have to work super hard for, but now I'm seeing that this might just be a belief that I was raised with, and that maybe some things in life can actually be easier (or even easy)."
Tanya, business owner, Sydney
Before I engaged with Simone, I was feeling helpless and hopeless. I had seen numerous GPs, a couple of gynaecologists and one naturopath about significant PMDD and other symptoms I had been experiencing for over 4-5 years.
I was told by two GPs that I would just have to learn to live with the symptoms.
My quality of life continued to deteriorate, impacting my work and personal life. I would wake up most days struggling to find energy, feeling no joy or pleasure in things, hating my body – the complete opposite to how I had felt in my 30s and early 40s.
The hidden cost of perimenopause
Why am I so passionate about helping women THRIVE in perimenopause?
Because these statistics make me mad!
"Recent research conducted by the Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees found 45 per cent of women under 55 years were retiring early due to sickness, injury or disability, costing a woman on the average wage more than $500,000 in lost earnings and more than $50,000 in superannuation."
Investment Magazine, January 2023
TUESDAY MAY 30, 2023: New data published today by health fund, HCF, has revealed more than 70% of Australian women aged 45 and over do not feel well informed or prepared for menopause.
“Our research clearly shows women are still not feeling well informed, educated or prepared for the changes they might experience during perimenopause and menopause."
HCF report "Managing menopause"
"Women going through the menopausal transition are at a higher risk of mood changes and symptoms of depression and anxiety."

The benefit of Thrive
When you work with me, we will discuss
your personal experience of perimenopause
you're unique and you deserve a unique style of treatment
No two women experience perimenopause the same way. Even your mum and sisters will have different experiences. Have you tried following advice from an online group? Tried a treatment recommended by a friend? Followed expert recipes in a magazine?
The reason these treatments don't work for you the way they worked for someone else is because you are different and will experience perimenopause differently.
Your experience is different because of your
work and family commitments, busyness
daily eating habits (this is a big one!)
exercise (are you fast paced, moderate or sedentary)
weight (fat cells produce estrogen!)
metabolism (energy metabolism and estrogen metabolism)
health history (previous surgeries, allergies, hormone or IVF treatments)
stress levels (work, family, money, past trauma)
gut bacteria (did you know we have an estrobiome?)
other health conditions (thyroid, diabetes, endometriosis, fatty liver disease)
During the course of our time together you will be able to work out how to modify your diet and lifestyle to make a remarkable difference to how you feel.
You will learn about the pattern that perimenopause takes and what to expect over the coming months and years.
It's YOUR time to THRIVE!
How this program works:

(because that's about the right amount of individual consultations to help you see big changes)
1 initial consultation in week 1 or 2

8 watch at home videos about perimenopause
(so you can fit them into your busy life at a time that suits you)

Within a week of trying Simone's suggestions I noticed a huge change - no bloating, feeling lighter, less irritable and less hot flushes.
6 weeks later I have no headaches, no migraines, no hot flushes or night sweats and a better nights sleep. I also have less brain fog, more energy and I've lost a few kilos.
My heartfelt thanks are with Simone for her care and listening and gentle guidance. I would strongly recommend Simone.
