Meet Molly

Certified Nutritional Therapist &

Mindfulness Coach

Hi, I'm Molly.

I'm a Registered Nutritional Therapist (DipION, mBANT) and Certified Mindfulness Practitioner (MSc).

I work in Harpenden Hertfordshire and via my Online Clinic. 

 

Since 2019, I have been praised by my clients for having a compassionate approach that often impacts their wider life, beyond improving their physical health.

I am dedicated to helping women find relief from debilitating period pain. My journey to becoming a healer in this field was deeply personal. After enduring excruciating periods for over a decade, I realised that my monthly pain was not just a temporary inconvenience but a barrier to living a fulfilling life. Feeling like I couldn't pursue a traditional career due to the unpredictability of my pain, I left University and built my life around my menstrual cycles.

Through my experiences and training, I have gained profound insights into the impact of chronic period pain on physical and emotional well-being. Recognising the universal struggle faced by many women, I embarked on a journey to uncover the underlying causes of menstrual difficulties using the powerful combination of nutritional therapy and mindfulness techniques.

 

By exploring the intricate interplay between diet, lifestyle, and mindset, I identified key factors contributing to my own pain and discovered effective strategies for alleviation. Now equipped with this comprehensive understanding and a passion for holistic wellness, I am dedicated to empowering women by sharing my expertise and guiding them on their own paths to relief and vitality.

 

Working with me involves embodying balance, embracing self-compassion, and having a non-judgemental acceptance of where you currently are in your journey.

 

This path is for you if you have been feeling disconnected from or frustrated with your body, and you are ready to prioritise your health.

Understanding
Period Pain

Period pain, medically known as dysmenorrhea, is a common yet often misunderstood experience that many women face. It's not just about feeling a little discomfort; for some, it can be debilitating and significantly disrupt daily life.

Types of Period Pain:

  1. Primary Dysmenorrhea: This type of period pain is caused by natural chemical compounds called prostaglandins, which trigger contractions in the uterus. These contractions help shed the uterine lining during menstruation. However, when prostaglandin levels are elevated, they can lead to stronger and more painful contractions, resulting in period pain.

  2. Secondary Dysmenorrhea: Unlike primary dysmenorrhea, secondary dysmenorrhea is usually associated with an underlying medical condition, such as endometriosis, fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), or adenomyosis. These conditions can cause inflammation, scarring, or structural abnormalities in the reproductive organs, leading to more severe and persistent period pain.

 

Common Symptoms of Period Pain:

  • Cramping: A dull or throbbing pain in the lower abdomen that may radiate to the lower back or thighs.

  • Heavy Bleeding: Excessive menstrual flow that can contribute to feelings of fatigue and weakness.

  • Nausea and Vomiting: Some women may experience gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhoea.

  • Headaches: Hormonal fluctuations during menstruation can trigger headaches or migraines.

  • Emotional Changes: Hormonal changes can also affect mood, leading to irritability, anxiety, or depression.

  • Fatigue: Period pain and heavy bleeding can disrupt sleep and leave you feeling exhausted.

 

Impact on Daily Life:

Period pain isn't just physical; it can also have a significant impact on mental and emotional well-being. Severe pain and discomfort can interfere with work, school, social activities, and relationships. Many women are told their pain is "normal" and feel forced to "power through" their symptoms, often at the expense of their own health and happiness.

Finding Relief:

While period pain is common, it is not normal if it is getting in the way of your ability to participate in daily life. And it is not something you have to endure silently. By addressing the underlying causes of period pain and adopting a holistic approach to menstrual health, you can find relief and reclaim control over your well-being.
