An essential book to help women to live well through the menopause and to cope effectively with menopausal symptoms, using a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approach.
Living Well Through the Menopause is based on a wealth of research, including randomised controlled trials of the MENOS intervention with over 1000 women, that has demonstrated the effectiveness of this approach specifically for menopausal symptoms - hot flushes, night sweats and also their impact on daily life. CBT is proven as an effective alternative for women who do not want or are unable to use hormone therapy (HT).
Written in an accessible and interactive style, with case examples and quotes, this guide will empower you and, specifically:
· Help you to understand and cope with your physical and emotional reactions to the menopause
· Clarify your key goals, thoughts and feelings using interactive questions and homework sheets
· Enhance your self-care through behaviour change
· Help partners and loved ones to support you through the menopause
Living Well self-help guides use clinically proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical.
