Welcome to my website. My aim is to provide practical, down-to-earth information on how to talk more openly and honestly about the way we age and how we approach the end of our lives.
I do hope you will find the resources and information helpful. Just go the relevant buttons on the main menu and a drop-down menu will appear. You can then choose the topics you want to read about.
Having been through it myself, I have a particular interest in the physical and psychological changes that the menopause brings, and how these changes impact on our relationships. My book Sex, Meaning and the Menopause tackles these issues and is very much aimed at men as well as women.
You may also be interested in my books on end of life, The D-Word: Talking about Dying and Nearing the End of Life: A guide for relatives, friends and carers. You can find further information about all three publications from Sue’s Books, on the main menu.
Please do feel free to contact me. I welcome comments and stories of your own experiences, whether that’s about the end of life, the menopause, or what it’s like to grow older.
To find out more about the work I do, including the workshops I offer, follow the link About Sue. I also blog about the menopause and end of life issues, and about my adventures teaching English to the Dalai Lama’s monks in Dharamsala.
