The session is being facilitated by Kirsty Dixon, Pause for Thought Consultancy
Kirsty is a postmenopausal woman, who had 12 years of perimenopause with day to day life impacting symptoms. Without doubt, the support she had from friends, family and in the workplace, her line manager and colleagues, has been crucial. Her journey, which she will talk about very openly (no question is too embarrassing, and she will talk about anything!) has been a very testing one but she is now coming out the other side a stronger, positive and more confident person. Her experience has given her a passion for raising awareness and helping people to understand what can help. Also, to give the people who can raise awareness and provide support to others, the confidence to do so.
