About The Seminar

Join us for an informal session for school leaders to look at how you can support employees who are experiencing the Menopause.

The theme this year is cognition and mood and we are lucky to have Margot Clements, Menopause Coach and Dr Rachel Jakeman, a Menopause Specialist Reset Coach hosting the session. They will cover brain fog, coping strategies, support mechanisms, hormonal symptoms and the effect on relationships.

Dr Rachel Jakeman

MBBS MRCGP DRCOG DFFP Member of British Menopause Society

Since qualifying as a GP from Newcastle Medical School in 1994, women’s health and young people’s health have always been at the forefront of my specialist interests. I also have a particular interest in Mental Health and Burnout prevention and recovery.

Throughout my career I’ve pursued my interest in women’s health gaining diplomas from both the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (DRCOG) and the faculty of Family Planning and Sexual Health (DFFP with competence in fitting contraceptive implants). I’m also passionate about helping and empowering women to thrive throughout the menopause.

I am a trained Coach with an emphasis on transformational and wellbeing coaching. I look at the whole person and like to offer bespoke sessions drawing on both my medical and coaching knowledge to get the best outcome for the client. This year I am undertaking further training in the Menopause ,  studying for a certificate in Sexology . I’m also running pilates programmes which will involve health coaching .

Margot Clements

My first career was in the education and training sector, moving from  employment to self- employment. This encompassed work with organisations such as the DfE, the Home Office, the Welsh Assembly, the TUC and the British Muslim Forum. I was passionate about working to bring key stakeholders together to make the most impact; whether it be developing a national policy, evaluating an innovative approach to something or delivering bespoke provision to organisations.

My ‘second spring’ career as a menopause coach has ignited a different passion but still often involves working closely with others to effect the most change for an individual person or organisation. My coaching style with individual clients is intuitive and meets the person where they are on any particular day, providing a combination of support, challenge, information and guidance. My approach to working with businesses is very similar, identifying and working with them from where they currently are with their menopause approach. My tag line is Your Menopause Your Way……

Volunteering has always been important to me and includes: Chair of an Education Business Partnership; governor at a Leeds primary school; and the delivery of Speak Out, Stay Safe workshops for the NSPCC. Currently this sees me working locally with a social enterprise to deliver free monthly menopause talks and cafes.

I love all things visual- as an aphantasic that seems ironic- including theatre, art, cinema. In the spirt of trying to keep my brain active, my 12 year old has challenged me to learn the ukulele, I have enrolled to undertake- and perform at- a stand- up comedy course and, as a family, we are learning British Sign Language.
