Your Experience

During our 1 Day Menopause Retreat, you will meet experts qualified in all aspects of the menopause and have the opportunity to share your experiences with other like-minded women, so that you leave feeling empowered and positive about this significant life transition!

Come alone, or bring your sister or friend also going through menopause or perimenopause.

What to Expect

  • An introduction from your host and an opportunity to meet your fellow retreat participants.
  • A Yoga class suitable for all levels with our yoga expert, who will explain how yoga can benefit you during the menopause and beyond.
  • A discussion with our menopause nurse about the physiology of menopause and medical symptom management, with plenty of time for Q&As.
  • A session with our nutritional therapist where we explore the impact of food and diet during our menopausal years and learn how we can make simple positive changes, to ensure that we feed our body what it needs during this time. 
  • An introduction to the psychology of menopause, and  how you can manage your symptoms using psychological techniques.

In addition to lunch, refreshments will be provided throughout the day.

About the Venue

From the moment you catch a glimpse of the wonderful 1693 Georgian façade, you know you are somewhere special. The Blackwell Grange Hotel is a stunning 17th Century mansion, which enjoys an enviable setting in the beautiful County Durham countryside.

Nestled in wooded parkland on the outskirts of Darlington and located between the North Yorkshire Moors and the Pennines, yet only forty-five minutes from the historic cities of York and Newcastle, Blackwell Grange provides a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and makes an ideal location for our retreats.

Further details about the venue location and programme for the day will be sent to you after registration.

Retreat Franchisee – Gwen Swinbank Wiltshire

Gwen SwinbankGwen is young at heart and a menopausal mother of two daughters rising to the challenges of the inevitable ageing process. She hails from the scenic and historic county of Durham though she started her working life in a busy Accountancy office in Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh. She moved back to her home county after falling in love and thus the beginning of a 30-year-long marriage still going strong!

Once her girls had started school she embarked on many years of study gaining qualifications in counselling skills, business, communication, and teaching, in order to get her back into a career and provide a much welcome break from Barbie’s and Disney movies. Always ready to listen and support wherever she can, this exciting adventure seems like the perfect next step.
