This framework draws upon evidence-based principles from various psychological approaches, including elements from third-wave Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) methodologies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Emotion Efficacy Therapy (EET).
The EMBERS® Menopause-Informed framework aligns with the bio-psycho-sociocultural model, is underpinned by the principles of Lifestyle Medicine, and is informed by a neuroscientific understanding of how menopause impacts both the brain and the mind.
This model aims to target a range of psychological processes that can become imbalanced during the menopausal transition which when addressed, women will benefit from improved emotional regulation, enhanced psychological flexibility, and increased day-to-day functioning.

What professionals are saying about EMBERS®
I feel the EMBERS® model is incredibly thorough [....] and this is exactly the type of process/framework women need to guide them back to feeling restored and a new version of themselves.
The course provided a wealth of knowledge about the menopause, and I thoroughly enjoyed learning about physiology, neuroscience, and the body. Also, it provided a wealth of tools and a very intuitive framework for working with clients.

I found the EMBERS® PTP extremely valuable. My knowledge has increased greatly in understanding many aspects of impact of menopause and the key strategies that can manage many of the difficult symptoms that can be present. I also enjoyed that this course was rich with evidence-based information.
Suzanne - CBT Therapist
I found your in-depth knowledge very impressing - I liked the neuroscience approaches very much and also the more informational parts were very profound.
I found the EMBERS® PTP to be an excellent course - the training was well-structured and comprehensive for an introductory training on the menopause and mental health topic.
