Kathryn's Story

Kathryn Colas is a hugely respected voice for women going through the menopause.

The founder and chief executive of the women’s advice and support service SimplyHormones, she has become a sought-after media commentator and public speaker, recognised for her work with NGOs, public and private sector organisations in improving understanding of menopausal symptoms; empowering women with better information while influencing policy and practices in the workplace.

Kathryn became the first and only lay person to be appointed to the medical advisory committee of the British Menopause Society.

In 2015, the Government’s official Business Champion for older workers Ros Altmann observed in her report ‘A New Vision for Older Workers’ that “currently, there is no training for line managers to deal with this issue [of the menopause]”. Kathryn responded by developing the first and so far only work-based programme for key personnel and delivered by qualified professionals.

Kathryn’s media appearances include the BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour, BBC Breakfast TV and numerous national newspapers and magazines.

What Some of Our Clients Have to Say

The course was very informative and well written. It has been very useful to me and I know that the knowledge that I have gained will be beneficial to the force.

I haven’t seen anything like this before. It’s fantastic, I feel better already.
Kathryn has supported our employees and clients with expert advice about menopause. She has become a requested guest speaker at our conferences and she is a key driver in supporting staff with their long-term well-being and in turn reducing staff absence.
