Are you grappling with changes that you don’t understand or feel powerless to control?
Our three day Happy Healthy Hormones programme is designed to help you understand the biological equilibrium and the psychological effects of your hormonal cycles.

The programme’s structure
Combining the latest research on hormonal health – with a psychological exploration of balance in the feminine body, bio-identical hormone advisor and Functional Medicine Doctor, Dr Elaine McQuade together with Dr Bea Paszthy, will educate and empower you to find a more harmonious balance.
Working with a small tribe of like-minded women in a supportive and nurturing environment, you’ll explore female potency. Leveraging everything from educational talks, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to mindfulness visualisations and Heart Rate Variability training (HRV), our intellectual wellness workshops help you address the impact of shifting hormones at different stages of your life.

Targeted therapeutic workshops are the focal point of your day, but our holistic approach extends into every part of your stay, gently empowering you with the knowledge and confidence to obtain a new perspective and make permanent changes in your life.
Dr McQuade’s expertise on nutrition and diet is put to practical use in the delicious, organic food prepared in-house to match your hormonal requirements. Balancing your gut microbiome, you’ll enjoy gluten and dairy free meals that combines superfoods and healthy proteins together with fresh and fermented vegetables. Chat informally to a member of our experienced team on continuing these healthy changes to your diet at home.

The programme also involves core-strengthening exercise in the form of gentle yoga or Pilates, chi or nordic walking and you’ll be encouraged to explore the beautiful, secluded surroundings at your chosen venue, to embrace the power of nature.
