Interviewing both men and women for Sex, Meaning and the Menopause made me realise how few couples talk about the menopause in any depth, especially when it comes to sexual changes, or, indeed, understand how the menopause brings unresolved issues within the relationship to the surface.

My most recent blog is on Counsellors and Psychotherapists: Alarming lack of knowledge about the menopause.
Please note that this page is not about medical symptoms related to the menopause. If you are looking for this, or general information on the menopause, please click on recommended websites, or recommended books.
