How it works

The HypnoMenopause® Approach

If you’re reading this page, it’s likely that you’re at some stage in the menopausal transition (or think you might be). Did you know that the lead up to menopause, known as perimenopause, can last many years? Menopause itself is defined as the time when you haven’t had a period for twelve months or more, after which time you’re in the post-menopausal stage.

Whatever stage of menopause you’re experiencing, you might be finding this time of life difficult for several reasons and wondering how the HypnoMenopause® Approach can help.

For some women, this transitional phase is characterised hot flushes and night sweats, fatigue, aches and pains, sleep problems and a range of other symptoms which make it hard to function. It’s also a time when women may be struggling with life pressures and a shifting sense of their own identity.

HypnoMenopause® was featured in Psychologies Magazine. Following the programme, journalist Clem Felix wrote, “I feel energetic and am looking forward to the future with real excitement for the first time in years. For now, at least, I feel a long way from needing HRT”. HypnoMenopause® creator, Dr. Claire Jack, writes regularly about the menopausal transition for online magazine, Psychology Today as one of their in-house experts.

HypnoMenopause is based on real-world research with real outcomes

How can hypnotherapy help me with hot flushes/ insomnia/ brain fog?

We often think of the brain and body as being separate, when, in fact, they’re completely connected. Everything we think impacts us at a physical level (take a moment to think of something which causes you fear, and notice how your body reacts). Hypnotherapy can help us connect with our body at a deep level and, in addition to changing the messages we offer ourselves, visualisation is linked to physical changes at the cellular level. Whatever physical menopausal symptoms you have, increasing your mind-body awareness has the capacity to help.

Is it guaranteed to help me?

As with any type of therapy, hypnotherapy isn’t guaranteed to help. However, if you are genuinely motivated to create change and are open to exploring hypnotherapy, like many clients it is likely you will see an improvement in your symptoms.

What if I can’t be hypnotised?

We know from research that some people are more hypnotisable than others. If you’ve ever been really engrossed in a good book or spent some time getting lost in a daydream, you have the capacity to reach a state of mind which is just right for you. We also know that the clients who experience the greatest transformations are those who are motivated – regardless of whether or not they’re highly hypnotisable. In addition to that, HypnoMenopause® draws on a range of different approaches, including mindfulness, CBT and NLP and people tend to find that they respond well to this integrated therapeutic approach.

I’m on HRT. Is that a problem?

If you’re on HRT and wish to continue taking it, it’s perfectly ok to use hypnotherapy alongside your medication as a complementary approach.

Can this be used as an alternative to HRT?

Everyone’s experience is unique and whilst some women stay on HRT during their HypnoMenopause® Programme, others seek it out as an alternative therapy. In clinical trials, hypnotherapy has been shown to have an effectiveness rate of up to 74% in the treatment of hot flushes – a similar success rate to HRT. It also helps with mood, sleep and sexual function so, for some women, it provides an effective alternative to medication.

Does it matter what stage of menopause I’m at?

HypnoMenopause® is designed to work with women, no matter whether they’re perimenopausal or postmenopausal. Menopausal symptoms can persist for several years and this programme can help you, whatever your experience.

I don’t have hot flushes. I’m just a bit down…

Some women seek out HypnoMenopause® because of physical symptoms, some women seek out hypnotherapy because of mood disorders and some women seek it out simply because they’re feeling stressed, fatigued and overwhelmed. HypnoMenopause® is designed to help with everything from coping with mid-life career stress to empty-nest syndrome to hot flushes.

How many sessions do I need?

During your initial consultation, we can discuss your needs, including how many sessions you might require. Generally, it is recommended that you have five sessions and complete the full HypnoMenopause® Programme. This allows me to adopt a holistic and integrated approach with you. Unlike a doctor, I’m not just here to treat your symptoms. I’m here to help you pursue the fulfilled life which you deserve. As part of your programme, you’ll receive two recordings and will be taught self-hypnosis so that you can carry the work forwards for the rest of your life.

I am incredibly grateful that I found and worked with Judi and I highly recommend her

When I first approached Judi I felt pretty hopeless day to day, really struggling to cope with straightforward interactions at work and with family. Working with Judi using hypnotherapy subtly shifted how I managed everyday experiences. I became confident and more able to make healthy decisions concerning family and work. This happened without having to delve deep into past upsetting experiences. The focus was on the present and the future. The hypnotherapy brought about a subconscious shift leaving me feeling positive about many aspects of my daily life. I am incredibly grateful that I found and worked with Judi and I highly recommend her.

I would highly recommend Judi if you are feeling lost

I came to see Judi as I was going through a divorce. It was great for me to learn why our brains react in a certain way to stressful situations. Through hypnosis Judi taught me how to remove stress from my life. Her friendly and understanding manner made me feel at ease right from the first session.

I would highly recommend Judi if you are feeling lost , anxious or stressed, if you open your mind to learning then Judi is the perfect teacher for you

My fear of enclosed spaces

I saw Judi to help me with several issues, in particular, my fear of enclosed spaces. Judi put me at ease from the very first session and I like the way she explains about the brain and how hypnotherapy works. I never imagined how much Judi’s sessions would help me and I have the added bonus of a recording I can listen to whenever I need to relax.

I have recommended Judi to lots of people I know.

Thank you so much, Judi, for what you’ve done for me.

Hi Friends! I get a bunch of questions about hypnosis and hypnotherapy. I think it’s shrouded in a bit of mystery, and can sometimes seem a little mysterious or inaccessible, which it absolutely isn’t! The hypnotic state is completely natural and normal, and when used therapeutically can be an amazing treatment modality as well as a way to find balance in this busy world.

Hypnosis, either self-hypnosis or in a therapeutic setting is a gentle process of deep relaxation, where you can release stress, attune to deep inner peace, find clarity, balance, healing, and recharge.

It’s an instant reset where you can feel renewed, centred, and highly capable of navigating your day, your schedule, and your life with ease, flow, and grace.

I think a good starting point when trying to understand hypnosis would be thinking of it as a self-care practice, because when you think about it, it is the ultimate in self-care because it affects the health of our mind. When the mind is feeling good, everything else can fall into place.

Very often, REST isn’t the first thing to come to mind when we think about our overall health. Sure, we think about sleep, and we know to be healthy we need good quality sleep and plenty of it, but what about rest?

I know what it’s like when the momentum of the go-mode has become the default, you feel like if you take the time to slow down it can all fall apart!

But what if, the deeper you rest, the more inspired, energised, and proficient you become? Maybe we just need to press the pause button so that everything can fall into place?

Hypnosis is simply an amazing tool we can use to simply rest and recharge.

Want to learn more? Just ask!

It's true what they say, if you can dream it, you can do it. The problem is, for most of us, we don't think it applies to ourselves. We let feelings of unworthiness get in the way of our dreams.

Subconscious patterns of thought are what limit us and can keep us from being who we really are. Hypnosis changes those patterns and opens your mind to the possibilities you might not have considered before.
