Pain to passion 

When I began to track my cycle using a menstrual cycle journal instead of an app, I noticed specific patterns throughout the month. I got curious about these patterns because I wanted to manage my endometriosis more sustainably and naturally. 

I decided to train as a professional menstrual cycle facilitator because I wanted to learn about my own menstrual cycle

During my training, I gained a deeper knowledge and awareness of myself, my emotions and my energy throughout the month. I enjoy my monthly cycle now and the dread of my period is gone!

This journey inspired me to provide access to useable education about periods and foster an understanding of the menstrual cycle. Menstrual literacy is not just for people with periods, it’s for everyone. With the support of Social Entrepreneurs Ireland, I have created The Mindful Cycle approach to learning about the menstrual cycle for individuals, schools, and parents.

Why work with me? 

I work with groups and individuals in a diverse range of settings

Mostly, my work involves women and girls, who want to learn more about periods and menstrual cycles.

I also provide talks for parents and professionals who may require support around understanding the menstrual cycle.

I believe that period pain and PMS are rooted in the resistance to cyclical living, the lack of understanding about how to live in tune with the monthly rhythm of the menstrual cycle and the stress response that this activates in you. 

Society has conditioned females to ignore their internal guidance system. Your period can tell you so much about your overall health and wellbeing.

What about you? 

If you've answered yes to any of these questions then The Mindful Cycle is for you. Trying to be the exact same every month is detrimental to your self-care and wellbeing because you are a cyclical being. Trying to maintain the same routine day in and day out is ultimately going to cause you stress, maybe overwhelm and even burnout. 

Benefits of working with me 

1:1 coaching 

As a period coach I can help you to discover what you need to better support yourself and understand your monthly menstrual cycle. The coaching is personalised to you. 

Menstrual cycle coaching sessions include a lifestyle audit, discussion around your concerns, space to ask questions, mindful practice, self-reflection and support tailored to your needs. It is a process, developing a set of sustainable skills and habits, not a quick fix

Coaching for teens also available. 

I advise booking a discovery call to see if we are a good fit to work together.  

Testimonials

I am so glad that I participated in the mindful cycle coaching with Paula over the past few months. It has been a great way to learn about myself and my experience of my period and what it means for me. I have found it a really helpful space to reflect on my health and self care and I have made some really positive changes to my daily routine. I am more aware of reading my body's signals throughout my cycle and I am more able to meet my own needs. This has helped me reduce anxiety and feel better in general. Paula has such a lovely, fun, caring presence and has made the learning journey so personal to me. I can't recommend Paula's coaching enough, I am telling all the women in my life about it and the positive effect it has had on my health and happiness.

I've always had painful periods and I had always thought that it was part of being a woman and that we just had to suck it up. But after attending your webinar I decided to get it checked out and it's fibroids. I never would have gotten it looked into if you hadn't said that level of pain isn't normal. So it just goes to show how important the work that you're doing is and not just for young girls. Women of all ages need to be educated on menstruation. So thanks so much Paula for all that you're doing. It is really important work that is empowering women about their health.

A very helpful talk so that the girls know what is happening during the month and how to listen to their bodies in the different stages of menstrual cycle.
