Support Programme

Balancing Hormones after 40
Recorded Online Access


The years before menopause can be be challenging for women. It can be a rollercoaster of heavy periods, migraines, anxiety and fatigue. If you are dreading the days and weeks before your period, this course is for you.  

Menopause is not a disease - it is a natural life change - but sometimes the transition can be a little rocky!

Welcome to a comprehensive programme designed to support women naturally through the years before menopause - aka perimenopause.

Designed by experienced Nutritional Therapist, Claire Clerkin, the support programme is your starting point to balancing hormones in a safe, natural and sustainable way. 


This is a 4-week group programme for who are looking to achieve healthy hormones.
The content of the course will focus primarily on healthy hormones after 40 - easing the transition into menopause and ensuring that you future-proof your health for the physical changes after menopause.  

The programme is split into two parts:

1. Weekly group learning sessions (via Zoom)
1 hour group sessions for four weeks.
This is an opportunity to discover the connections behind hormonal symptoms and the recommended lifestyle and dietary changes.  
This also provides a forum for the group to ask questions, share successes and keep on track with your diet and lifestyle changes.

2. Hormone Balance Lifestyle Plan
The programme will introduce you to a the principles of natural hormone balance. You will be provided a Hormone Balance Lifestyle Guide which includes dietary recommendations, recipes and worksheets on the nutrition and hormones.
The plan also includes lifestyle advice on sleep, movement and stress management.

Extra Modules
Need extra support? The programme also includes options for in-depth stress monitoring, additional hormone mastercalsses and discounted 1:1 consultation and supplement advice.  


Discover greater overall physical and mental health and wellbeing. 
Learn the proven tips to help reduce the symptoms of hormone imbalance.

Use nutrition and lifestyle interventions to balance all your hormones. From progesterone and oestrogen, to cortisol!


Knowledge is power. Each week you'll learn more and more about what's happening in your body and how you have control over your health.


Reconnect positively with your body and discover how to manage the normal hormonal transitions with poise. 

Hi, I am Claire, a Registered Nutritional Therapist and Functional Nutrition expert.

After more than 10 years helping women navigate through the frustrating symptoms of hormone imbalance, I decided to design a programme that pulls together the simple and effective ways you can balance your hormones in the years before menopause.

Menopause gets a lot of attention, but many women struggle with the often dramatic hormone imbalance that precedes the final period. 

In fact, some evidence suggests that supporting healthy hormone balance in the years before menopause can reduce the severity of the transition.

This programme is designed to provide a mix of education and practical advice that I know works - I have seen it time and time again in my clinical practice.

Shifts in hormone balance can affect many parts of your health, in ways that might not seem obvious!

Period Problems

Heavy, flooding periods // Irregular periods // Painful periods

Mood and Mind

Feeling angry or frustrated // Unexplained Anxiety // Low Moods
Brain fog // Poor concentration // Loss of Confidence

Body Changes

Headaches or Migraines // Sore Breasts // Aches and Pains 
Unexplained palpitations // Vaginal Infections (frequent)

Fatigue and Sleep 

Low Energy // Insomnia // Night Sweats // Low Motivation

The Perimenopause Support Programme uses safe, evidence-based approached to naturally balance hormones.

The programme is not a replacement for medical advice, nor is it designed to diagnose any condition. 


The reality is that women’s bodies shift and recalibrate throughout their lifetimes, and particularly in the 5-10 years before menopause.
This programme is designed to address the root causes of hormone imbalance after 40. The diet and lifestyle advice reflects this. 

The first step is to understand what is happening in your body. Then, it all makes sense and the diet and lifestyle changes become easy! 

Drawing on the principles of functional medicine and applying my proven method for success, the programme will offer participants a chance to get reconnect with their bodies, develop positive diet and lifestyle habits and ultimately feel good! 

The easy-to-follow, interactive programme includes:

  • Weekly Group Sessions
  • Comprehensive Programme Guide
  • Delicious Recipes 
  • Video Lessons of bite-sized online learning
  • Home Assessments and Questionnaires
  • Practical Lifestyle advice
  • Convenient Meal Plans
  • Stress evaluation and support
  • Weekly Mindfulness practices, focused on female hormone balance


It's not just about what you eat. How you sleep, exercise and manage stress is essential for healthy hormone balance.

I have partnered with Firstbeat Technologies to include a Lifestyle Assessment in the programme.

Firstbeat is the most advanced technology to help balance stress and recovery for better health.

A Lifestyle Assessment over four days will track your stress, sleep, and exercise, and reports your individual results in a visible and powerful way.

This is an optional element, available to participants in the UK and Ireland.
