What makes us different
Inside the Programme
Session One: Understanding PCOS
Let’s take it back to the basics. We explore the menstrual cycle and the endocrine system through the lens of PCOS. Understand the prevalence, pathophysiology, symptoms and causes of PCOS.
Session Two: Treating PCOS
We analyse the guidance from Monash University and how we can put it into practice. We discover the best resources to refer our clients on to and explore our scope of practice.
Session Three: Supplementation 101
The world of PCOS supplements can feel like the Wild West! We dig through the evidence and understand contraindications so you can provide evidence-based advice to your clients.
Session Four: Emotional Wellbeing
Managing PCOS doesn’t just involve medication and supplements. Sleep hygiene, stress management and overall emotional wellbeing is paramount for PCOS management.
Session Five: Pillars of PCOS Nutrition
The PCOS Collective have a nutrition framework we use with all of our clients. We share our PCOS nutrition pillars and discover actionable, implementable ways to weave nutrition into your management plan with your client.
Session Six: PCOS Nutrition Additions
Now we have the nutrition foundations in place we can discuss additions to the diet, as well as myth-bust common misconceptions.
Session Seven: Moving Intuitively for PCOS
Let’s discover the impact of movement on PCOS symptoms. Weaving intuitive, joyful movement into a management plan can help improve symptoms.
Session Eight: Fertility for PCOS
PCOS is one of the most common causes of infertility worldwide. This session focuses on menstrual tracking (including BBT, ovulation signs) and tools to support conception in people with PCOS.
Hi, I'm Alex Okell
I've worked with hundreds of people living with PCOS and supported them to manage their symptoms and improve their chances of conception.
I am the Founder of The PCOS Collective, a Reproductive Health Nutritionist and the author of Eating Intuitively for PCOS and my clients range from people looking to reduce symptoms of hyperandrogenism to those looking to improve their fertility.
My clients have one thing in common – they are sick and tired of being ignored, spoken-over and preached to about their PCOS. They are looking for compassionate, inclusive care that gets results – and that is where I come in!
I am passionate about supporting other wellbeing professionals to offer inclusive, supportive care for people with PCOS – and I can’t wait to help you too!
