Menopause anxiety-taking action Wednesday 16 May 2018 PDF Print For immediate release: 16 May 2018 Menopause anxiety – taking action Anxiety often strikes women at the menopause, leaving them worrying about everything and anything, big or small. It can affect their day-to-day activities, friendships and relationships, social life and work routine. Many women are reluctant to seek help, yet there are various effective ways to keep anxiety under control. In the Spring 2018 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter, specialist counsellor Dani Singer and accredited menopause specialist Dr Jane Woyka, discuss menopausal anxiety. They look at the most common anxiety triggers at this time of life, as well as management options, including HRT, anti-depressants, self help measures and counselling. “The impact of anxiety is often underestimated and many women are reluctant to seek help, instead suffering in silence,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “Emotional and psychological menopausal symptoms are often the hardest ones to tackle, but there’s no need for women to suffer in silence. There are plenty of things they can do to keep their anxiety from controlling their life.” The Menopause Exchange, which was established in 1999, is completely independent and is not sponsored by any companies. It provides impartial, easily understood information to women, healthcare professionals and others responsible for the wellbeing of employees. The Menopause Exchange quarterly newsletter contains articles written by top medical experts, such as gynaecologists, GPs, consultants, specialist menopause nurses, pharmacists, dietitians, complementary practitioners and a specialist counsellor etc. Other articles in the Winter 2017/18 newsletter include weight management, side effects of HRT and osteoarthritis, as well as recent news, Ask the Experts Q&As and information about Norma Goldman’s Understanding the Menopause talks.
