Or maybe you know it’s perimenopause or menopause, but you’re confused about what to do to get your hormones under control.

Join our group sessions with one of our doctors from The Menopause Consultancy to find out how to balance your hormones after 40.

Waitlist now open for our first session on Thursday 29 April at 7pm! BOOK NOW

Katie Taylor, Founder of The Latte Lounge, spent four years being misdiagnosed before she finally received her perimenopause diagnosis. 

During that time she visited around half a dozen different medical specialists who sent her off for a variety of investigations for her seemingly unrelated symptoms including; heart palpitations, brain fog, low mood, aching joints and anxiety. She ended up taking antidepressants for two years because doctors wrongly diagnosed her with depression. She also quit her job when her symptoms became too much.

The reason Katie set up The Latte Lounge was to help other women educate and empower themselves about perimenopause and menopause so that they would not have to go through the same experience that she did.

Join our first Menopause Lounge

Katie has been where you are so she knows exactly how you are feeling.

She draws upon five years of ‘on the job’ knowledge, gained by working with, and alongside, a vast array of medical specialists and experts in the field of perimenopause/menopause and really understands the affect that fluctuating hormones can have on women’s health and wellbeing.

Katie wants to save you time and heartache, by helping you get the support and answers that you need NOW. 

That’s why we are partnering with the team at The Menopause Consultancy to offer you the chance to have all of your questions about your hormones answered by a doctor in a confidential, virtual group setting.

We are now opening places to our very first session, limiting numbers to ensure all of your questions can be answered in the time available.

Why join:

  • Direct access to a doctor from The Menopause Consultancy at a fraction of the cost of a 1:1 appointment.
  • A small group session in a confidential, virtual environment.
  • An expanded run time of 90 minutes providing plenty of time for discussion and Q&A’s with our doctor.
  • Tailored content – you’ll have the opportunity to complete a pre-event questionnaire to share all of your questions, concerns and the help that you need in advance.
  • Connect with other women who are going through the same experiences as you. 
  • Direct email support pre and post session with Katie Taylor and her team

Each session will be facilitated by Katie, who will bring her own experience of debilitating perimenopause symptoms and deep knowledge of the topics discussed to the group.  After 5 years of leading The Latte Lounge community, supported by a medical advisory team consisting of dozens of menopause specialists & women’s health experts, Katie has pretty much seen and heard it all.

In our first session we will be joined by Dr Roisin McHugh, Associate Doctor from The Menopause Consultancy, and member of the British Menopause Society.

About Dr Roisin McHugh:

Dr Roisin McHugh completed her medical training at the Imperial College London (St Mary’s Hospital) with an Intercalated BSc from University College London in 1998. She did her post graduate GP training in Derry, gaining MRCGP, along with Diplomas in Care of the Elderly, Child Health, Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Family Planning.

Dr McHugh then worked as a GP in Townsville, Australia for 2 years. On her return to London in 2005 she joined Dr Tina Peers working in the family planning clinic in Surrey, providing contraceptive advice and inserting contraceptive implants and coils.

Dr McHugh has completed the Diploma in Practical Dermatology from Cardiff, and has maintained a strong interest in Dermatology by working in a skin clinic. She continues to work in online medicine and as a GP in the NHS and to further develop her interest in female health by becoming a member of the British Menopause Society and she has completed their Special Skills menopause course.

What topics will be discussed? Is it right for me?

If you think you might be struggling with some, or many of, the so-called 34 symptoms of menopause such as; low mood, brain fog, weight gain and a lack of libido, then we will be able to help you during these sessions. 

And if you’re trying to decide whether HRT or other lifestyle/treatment options might be right for you, but you’re just not sure what to do, then this is the place to ask our expert!

The exact topics at each Menopause Lounge session will be determined by you through the pre-event questionnaire that you complete. Our doctor will share information, offer advice and explain more about some of the most common topics surrounding our hormones especially during perimenopause and menopause.

Topics might include:

  • how to deal with brain fog, low mood & anxiety
  • the myths and facts about HRT
  • alternatives to HRT
  • how to manage sleep
  • how to improve libido
  • what’s happening to my hormones after 40?
  • what treatment options are available for those who have had cancer?
  • what can I do to protect my bone health, heart health and brain health?

 

Reserve your place at our first Menopause Lounge on Thursday 29 April at 7pm for £49 today

 

Once you have booked onto the session you’ll receive a Zoom link which you’ll use to join on the evening, as well as a link to our questionnaire so you can let us know exactly how we can best support you.

About this session:

Sorry, no refunds or exchanges once booked onto this session.

Please note that The Menopause Lounge does not replace personalised medical advice and our doctors will be unable to give tailor-made advice to any one individual woman. We are also unable to prescribe medication or write to your GP with any specific recommendations.

However, if after the session, you feel you may still benefit from a private 1:1 session with one of the team at The Menopause Consultancy, we are more than happy to arrange this for you. They will then be able to arrange prescriptions/ letters to your doctor, if this is something that you both decide is the right course of action, after that appointment.
