I'm an accredited health and wellness coach for women who want to thrive in midlife. As a specialist menopause and sleep coach, I can help you explore lifestyle strategies to help balance your hormones, improve your sleep, and embrace an empowered & positive mindset during this significant life transition.

Are you feeling burnt out, overwhelmed and sick of battling with the following...

  • Night sweats and sleepless nights
  • Exhaustion and brain fog
  • Sudden weight changes, especially around your midline
  • Emotional rollercoasters, stress and anxiety
  • Nagging headaches
  • Aching joints
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Loss of libido and...dry spells?

Navigating these challenges, sometimes you might feel you're playing catch-up with life.

  • Juggling family, love, work, and leisure and feeling your patience waning?
  • Always ensuring everyone else is alright, while your own needs take a backseat?
  • Drowning in a sea of advice and unsure who to trust?
  • Searching for the right support?  

I'm here to tell you that you don’t have to suffer - and you definitely don’t have to work it out on your own. 

Let's journey through this together, and get you back on track towards a thriving, fulfilling life.

Youna Angevin-Castro, accredited health & wellness coach. 

Location: Face-to-face sessions offered in Melbourne, and virtual coaching from anywhere.

The Thrive Over 40 Framework

Women in their 40's and 50's have complex, busy lives, 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 menopause.

  • Sleep: 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, hiking in nature, or dancing in your living room.

  • Stress Management: Stress has the capacity to derail your sleep, nutrition and excersise. 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 support groups, social activities, and communication skills to foster deeper connections with loved ones and peers experiencing similar life changes.

  • Purpose: 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.

“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, 32 yo

“Youna was very warm and supportive. She really took the time to listen to me and understand me. Youna asked lots of really interesting questions that really helped me to get to the bottom of what changes I wanted to see in my life and why. She came up with some great strategies to move things forward. 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, 46 yo

“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.”

Carolyn, 60s
