My name is Kathryn Colas and I created this one-day event, Making Sense Of Menopause because I suffered confusion, distress and depression. 

 You don't have to feel like this.  

The Cycle can be broken and you will go away with the tools to do this. You will leave with a smile on your face :)



Kathryn Colas 

Kathryn Colas

Kathryn Colas is the go-to expert when it comes to menopause. She set up www.simplyhormones.com  as a result of her own distressful experiences; resigning from her job as she felt she couldn’t cope.  “Menopause has been described to me as Emotional Bankruptcy” and I have to agree. If only I knew then what I know now.”

Kathryn now shares that information through public speaking and workshops; creating solutions to train key people to understand the minefield that is menopause. She says “Let’s make sense of menopause”  Kathryn has appeared on national  BBC Breakfast TV, ITV This Morning, Sky TV Real Lives and speaks regularly on BBC radio across the length and breadth of the UK. Her own heartbreaking menopause story has appeared in leading Women’s magazines and the National Press.


Vicky O'Farrell

Victoria’s passion and enthusiasm is contagious and she inspires those around her to help themselves and others. She is a personal coach focusing on career potential, together with confidence coaching through her business: Motivational Voice. 

“I don’t believe one solution fits all. Every business and person has a unique DNA, understanding this make-up is essential before offering a solution.”


Nicki Williams

Nicki Williams is a qualified Nutritional Therapist, speaker and founder of Happy Hormones for Life, helping women to get back to their absolute best – slimmer, energized, more productive and in full control of their hormones!

After failing to find any medical help for her symptoms of exhaustion, weight gain and hormone issues herself in her early 40’s, she discovered that she could turn things around using diet, lifestyle and natural supplements.

She went on to qualify as a nutritional therapist and hormone expert, and now helps women all over the world with her online programmes, workshops and individual and group coaching.



What Women Say...

“Kathryn really knows her stuff and nothing fazed her she was able to answer all questions! No mean feat.  I would highly recommend her to others.  Her presentation is well polished and she comes across as a true professional .  Very impressed”. 

Insp. Lynda Bailey, W.Midlands Police

“Kathryn has supported our employees and clients with expert advice concerning the menopause. She has become a requested guest speaker at our conferences and she is a key driver in supporting staff with their long term well-being and in turn reducing staff absence!”

  Mandy Gallagher, SAS, Notts

“Kathryn’s presentation made such an impression on me. I have now become a champion for this message in my own organization”.

 Angela. Winnipeg Police, Canada 

“I haven't seen anything like this before. It's fantastic, I feel better already.”
