Menstrual Cycle Coach. First Moon For Girls Facilitator. Trained Teacher in Natural Fertility Education.
Naturopath. Registered Nurse.
Hi, I’m Sharon, a Period/Menstrual Cycle Coach, Registered Nurse, Naturopath, Trained Teacher in Natural Fertility Education, and First Moon Circle Facilitator. I love talking about menstrual health, all things menstrual cycle related, and feel passionately about getting everyone involved in understanding these incredible inner cycles.
I teach and coach young girls, their parents and women about puberty, periods, cyclical living, hormones, fertility, and nutrition, so that they can understand their bodies, find connection to themselves, unearth the potential and wisdom within their menstrual cycle, build healthy hormones and generate greater comfort and less struggle in their lives.
When I’m not punching squares on the keyboard or in clinic, you'll find me mucking about with my 2 kids, in a cafe with my girlfriends, hiking in Tassies’ amazing wilderness or walking my dog in the bush. I enjoy staying fit and healthy: anything outdoors will do but my steady favourites in addition to those above, include bike riding, running, gardening, and beaching. I also enjoy a cuppa, a good book, playing my guitar, and the odd red wine.

MENSTRUAL CYCLE COACHING
As a period coach I can help you to connect with, embrace and discover your cycle from as early as menarche, through your early adult years, pregnancy, during IVF, into menopause and beyond.
I can help you discover the potential within your monthly cycle and teach you easy and practical ways to use these natural and normal hormonal shifts to optimise your life, including better ways to experience your period.
Coaching can enable you to live in harmony or in sync with your cycle, to understand the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual (whatever that looks like for you) and feminine aspects of your menstrual cycle, to increase health and wellbeing, productivity, creativity, sports performance, confidence, self-esteem, relationships, connectedness, and the amount of pleasure and rest you can experience.
Menstrual cycle coaching incorporates many principles such as lifestyle, nutrition, self care practices, daily connection to your monthly menstrual cycle and other life cycles (lunar, seasons, circadian), stress management, exercise, ritual, and more, so that you can thrive and get more out of life.
Cycle coaching embraces the practices of cycle charting and menstrual cycle awareness to connect you deeply and firmly to yourself and to the cycles in nature which influence the human body. Being connected to your shifting thoughts and feelings and understanding how the female hormones influence this, helps you to find patterns and rhythms, and allows you to work with these shifts rather than against them. Being cycle aware and connected to self enables you to discover your own unique 'manual' and to start using your menstrual cycle to optimise your life.
FIRST MOON CIRCLES FOR GIRLS
First Moon Circles are period positive sessions that provide girls aged 9-13 with an holistic, empowering and inclusive education on the menstrual cycle, puberty, and cycle self-care. First Moon Circles provide space to celebrate the rite of passage of menarche (the first period) which reduces cultural menstrual shame and improves a girl's self esteem.
These once in a life time circles gift girls with wisdom, confidence and tools to support their happy, healthy entry to puberty and menstruation. This is a beautiful, empowering alternative to traditional period education and expands significantly on the mainstream school curricula, featuring craft, conversations and a special parent-daughter celebration.
First Moon Circles are sacred, beautiful, love-filled and most important of all FUN spaces for young girls and people identifying as female to gather in circle to receive knowledge and tools to start their periods with ease, flow (pardon the pun!) and comfort.
