This structured and progressive approach ensures a systematic development of menopause-informed CBT knowledge and skills.

This can be accomplished by successfully completing our EMBERS® Professional Training Programme (PTP), encompassing both Level 1 and Level 2. 

EMBERS® PTP - Pre-Enrol for 2025

Redefining CBT for Menopause Care

EMBERS® Menopause-Informed CBT model, is rooted in the recognition that harnessing the full power of CBT for women navigating menopause requires a deep understanding of the hormonal shifts occurring during this life stage and their impact on the body, brain, and mind. By acknowledging these nuances, mental health professionals can tailor their approach to effectively address the unique challenges posed by menopause. This specialised approach, represents an adaptation of traditional CBT methods specifically designed to align with the context and complexities of menopause

I’m Simona Stokes, Menopause Counselling Psychologist and the Founder of the Menopause CBT Clinic®. 

Menopause CBT Clinic, Simona Stokes

The Menopause CBT Clinic® was born out of my deeply held belief that all women who enter the peri/menopause stage of life should be prepared and equipped to embrace it with confidence and self-belief in their own strength and wisdom. 

My mission is to help women overcome their emotional difficulties caused by the menopause transition, by combining my over 20years experience in mental health with the latest knowledge in the field of menopause, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, neuroscience and behavioural science. My menopause work is infused with learning from my own personal peri/menopausal struggles, melded with my clinical and life experience.
