Kirby Taylor | Head of HR
Sovereign Group

I attended your Menopause and Wellness presentation a little while ago at Sovereign, may I say I thoroughly enjoyed (is that the right word) the session and it certainly got the point across.
 
Having gone through the menopause with my wife a few years ago whereby she could be the wicked witch of the west and east all on the same day (she could probably say the same thing about me), I wish I had been able to attend an awareness presentation and had the knowledge that you shared as I got pretty close to jumping on a plane back to the UK at one point.  I would advise everyone to attend.
 
I hope that I have expressed myself in the right way and as a ‘bloke’ thank you.

About my journey through the menopause...

As I turned 50, I was embarking on a new life, heading to Spain when I was diagnosed with the Menopause. This event turned my life around.

I have worked for years in the financial services industry both in Jersey and Gibraltar. I am a qualified trainer and workshop coordinator and set up my own training company and in 2010 decided to requalify as a Master Personal trainer specialising in women and children’s fitness and obesity. However, at no point did the word “Menopause” ever enter my vocabulary. I thought my 50-year-old ladies who couldn’t lose weight were not doing what they were told!

Now I understand the whole issue!

My work commenced in 2020 whilst in lockdown in Spain but the return to Jersey and through the instigation of writing an 8-week course on the Menopause, really cemented my step into the perimenopausal world.

Further collaboration with a local female GP, who specialised in women’s health, lead to the Menopause Forum and further FB support groups. Since starting on this personal journey I have worked with Carolyn Harris MP, a leading figure and Co-chairperson of the Menopause Task Force in the UK and Heather Currie, MBE, who leads the Scottish NHS Inform.

The final step in the journey is to now share my material and knowledge to every lady globally! By packaging everything together using my knowledge as a trainer, obesity specialist, life coach and latterly menopause ambassador, I hope to be able to incorporate all of this with my passion of listening to other people’s stories, in the form of podcasts that sit under my four pillars of health plus general well-being.

Welcome to the world of Menopause and Well-being!
