This revised edition of Managing Hot Flushes and Night Sweats offers up to date and evidence-based information about the menopause and about hot flushes and night sweats, which are the main reason that women seek medical help.
The four-week self-help guide uses cognitive behavior therapy providing information and strategies for managing hot flushes and night sweats, as well as stress and sleep. The guide is interactive with exercises and homework tailored to women's individual circumstances and lifestyles. It challenges myths about menopause and aging and provides better understanding of flushes which in turn reduces stress and improves post-menopausal wellbeing. The various chapters discuss processes of identification and modification of triggers of hot flushes and offers tips to women on dealing with hot flushes in social and work situations.
The guide was as effective as eight hours of group CBT and would help women who want to try a non-medical treatment that is brief, effective without side effects, or just want to be better informed.

"CBT helped me a lot. I was able to focus more on the areas I was struggling with. The breathing techniques helped me to manage my anxiety levels when they came on. I made more time for myself and changed my diet. By doing this I was able to stop the triggers for symptoms of menopause - I feel in control again" Nicolina Reynolds
"The CBT process was a turning point in managing my menopause experience. Not only did it help me to manage my symptoms and get them into perspective, it accelerated the psychological acceptance of menopause. I went from feeling old and miserable to feeling better about myself than I have in years. It feels really good to finally be happy in my own skin." Rebecca Berry
