ABOUT MEHi there, I'm Youna.

Does the sound of your alarm each morning feel like a rude awakening, leaving you groggy and unrested? If you’re a woman in the midst of midlife, chances are you’ve experienced those frustrating nights of tossing and turning, desperately seeking sleep, and getting to the end of the day with nothing left in the tank. Believe me, I know the struggle firsthand.

I too have juggled the demands of a busy career, family, and the hormonal rollercoaster of perimenopause. My lack of sleep affected everything – my mood, energy, weight, relationships, and even my ability to think clearly.

That’s when I discovered the transformative power of lifestyle change. I dove deep into the science of sleep, learned the importance of managing stress, and experienced first hand the benefits of nutrition and exercise in managing my energy levels. The fog lifted, my energy returned, and I felt like a new person.

Now, my mission is to empower other women to reclaim their energy levels and rediscover the joy of waking up refreshed and ready to take on the day.

MY APPROACHThe Thrive Over 40 Toolkit

Your 40's and 50's can be complex and busy, so my approach is a holistic one, addressing the following 6 key dimensions of health - sleep, nutrition, movement, stress, connection and purpose. Together, we will explore each of these dimensions, and formulate a tailored strategy for thriving through midlife.
Sleep and recovery

Sleep is a non-negotiable. Poor sleep can trigger hot flushes, increased anxiety, weight gain, and more. We’ll prioritise sleep so you can optimise your hormones, and start regaining control of your wellbeing.

Nutrition

We’ll focus on reducing inflammation, and eating nourishing foods that give you more energy, improved mental clarity, and help you maintain a healthy weight for your body.

Movement

Safeguarding our cardiovascular health and mobility is vital as we get older. We’ll focus on moving your body with joy and intention. Whether that means working out in the gym, or dancing in your living room.

Stress Management

Stress has the capacity to derail your sleep, nutrition and exercise. Together, we’ll focus on stress reduction, including techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises, mindfulness practices, and time management strategies.

Connection

Meaningful social connections are essential for your emotional and mental health. We explore ways to strengthen existing relationships and forge new ones, including communication skills to foster deeper connections with loved ones.

Mindset

Together, we’ll work on cultivating a positive outlook, self-compassion, and resilience. You’ll learn techniques to embrace the changes that come with menopause as opportunities for personal growth and transformation.

TESTIMONIALSPraise for Youna

Youna helped me to look at things from a new angle and came up with some new ways of making some positive changes. Most importantly she helped me to understand the value in prioritising my health and wellbeing.

Kylie K.

Youna was great at helping me figure out some of the roots of my anxiety and overwhelm, she helped me set up achievable goals that I could integrate into my life in a sustainable manner.

Carolina F.

I found the sessions helpful and supportive. I was a little afraid that I could feel intimidated but it wasn’t like that. Youna always made me feel like it was about me rather than just about the program.
