RELAX & RECHARGE - FEEL HEARD AND UNDERSTOOD PLAN FOR A HAPPIER YOU & A HEALTHIER MENOPAUSE
All women are going to go through the Menopause. Some women experience early menopause due to illness or surgery, other women go through naturally in their 40’s and early 50’s. But too often women are unprepared, unaware of what to expect or the symptoms.
Not only do our bodies change, but often during our 40’s and 50’s we experience emotional shifts and “Life Laundry” - Empty nest syndrome. Relationship issues – divorce, changes in sex life, grief, dating, being widowed. Serious illness. Challenges helping elderly parents or losing our parents. Changes in Work or redundancy. Your retreat hosts have personal experience of all of these life laundry challenges and this puts them in the perfect place to support you.
Whether you are early 40s and peri-menopausal, early surgical or medically induced menopause or right in the middle of those mood swings, hot flushes and sleepless nights - Our Menopause Retreats will help you to understand your symptoms, helping you to manage them and take control. Learn coping mechanisms to deal with the stress of every day life laundry and put future life goals in place.
Join Catherine, Cat and The Menopause Tribe for Time to Breathe and Time for You!. A safe nurturing space, where you can be open and honest, feel heard, understood and supported.
Discover how to alleviate your Perimenopause & Menopausal symptoms naturally, how to feel happier more often, live a healthier positive life and be YOU again!
Remove yourself from the Stresses of every day life
So often as women we put others first – Work, The kids, the partner, our colleagues, and even the dog! Our lives are so busy and hectic, multi-tasking with little work/life balance. This all puts pressure on our physical and emotional health. It’s time to put ourselves first and stop neglecting our mind and body!
Nestled away in beautiful surroundings from the stresses of every day life, you can rest, rebalance, take time out to focus on you, deal with any physical or emotional issues and rethink your life.
Choose from our 1, 2 or 3 day stay where you’ll enjoy delicious and nutritious food, gain expert advice, meditate, practice mindfulness and learn simple tools that you can put into your daily routine when you get home to continue your journey to a healthier mind, body and you.
You will leave our Retreat feeling relaxed, grounded and recharged – and positive towards the Menopausal phase with a plan for a brighter and happier future you.

Relax and Unwind in our hidden Gem!
Our bespoke retreats in January-March are held in a wonderful 17th century manor house in Bedfordshire.
The magic of Tofte Manor is held in its 50 acres of beautiful gardens, with its grass labyrinth and fire pit. During our overnight stays you’ll enjoy cosy girly chats around the warmth of open log fires during the winter and fun in the sunshine relaxing by the swimming pool during the summer. What makes Tofte Manor different is the harmonious holistic environment the owner has created, as well as the fact that the Manor House still retains its purpose as a home. This gives it a unique atmosphere of privacy and comfort whilst still delivering top quality service, accommodation and catering. Tofte Manor is within easy reach of London, Heathrow, Luton and Cambridge with regular train and taxi services.
