A Stranger In My Own Skin

This book/workbook was put together for women who are entering the ‘change’ in their life, hopefully bringing equilibrium to your body, mind and soul before you enter into the passage of rite. It is of course something women have been facing for thousands of years, although back in times gone by a woman’s life expectancy was much shorter and therefore they had probably passed away before the onset of this stage in their life. So what is a very normal process in a woman’s life can sometimes be a very challenging time, as it was for me. A combination of stress and hormonal imbalance caused me to have a ‘breakdown’, so I hope that through my experience of these peri-menopausal years in my life, I can share with you some of the challenges I faced and how I coped with these, using simple and practical solutions.

Apr 15, 2016What a lovely read. This book is great company for someone going through not just the Menopause but any stressful time in their lives. Sue lets us realise that we are never alone in our troubled state and that as human beings we can all feel the same. She then goes about explaining how we can help ourselves to a remedy. She nurtures our journey. She understands the affect of this journey on the people around us. She asks us to question ourselves along the way reinforcing our understanding. More than anything Sue has inspired me to take on my life again. Not a mean feat. Thank you.
Jun 24, 2014This book continues to enable me to connect with my femininity ; or perhaps I should say to reconnect, as it is something I've tried to deny or suppress for most of my life (through anorexia and not having had children). The book affirms the feminine and since reading it I've allowed my periods to return through weight gain. The author is very self accepting and courageous and her own story encourages me ; it is as if my body itself has received her message because my periods flow now, whereas before there was resistance ; I am sure the message is being 'heard' at a cellular level ; I am very grateful to Susan for writing this book ... thankyou!
Apr 8, 2014What a lovely, warm-hearted book. For anybody looking to understand more about the menopause, but also to feel understood whilst going through it… this is the workbook for you. It's easily accessible, friendly tone makes it a quick, comforting read for anybody who is struggling with their hormones, particularly those affected by the menopause. It's not full of science, nor is it necessarily based on much more than the author's own opinion, but she's experienced an awful lot and remains a beacon of hope to anybody suffering. Thank you to Susan for writing this book and sharing her very personal experiences, with the aim of helping others.
Mar 14, 2014This book is big on heart and exposes parts of the perimenopause and menopausal years with touching insights and compassion. It is also lovely to hold and read and easy to carry in a purse for quick reflection time for busy women. I consider it unique in its simplicity and direct approach to issues many women face. I am happy to include it in our Menopause Self Care library.
Jan 6, 2014My mum wrote this book and i cant tell you how proud i am. The menopause was tough for mum like it is for many other women and for her to come out the other side and write this to help others well what can i say she is AMAZIING! This book can help all not just women going the the 'change' but it highlights many issues and speaks on many methods that we all forget in our daily life. We all run around being hectic and forget the simple things which we all must have to be healthy in body and in mind. Worth a read for everyone! x
