Period Ready Workshop

Modern and interactive workshop for tweens aged 8-12 and their parent/caregiver

It’s time to rewrite the period story…

Because your tween deserves to have the start you wish you had.

That difficult experience you struggled through during your tween and teenage years? It doesn’t have to be passed on.

We no longer have to ‘tip-toe’ around this topic, speak in hushed voices, and make sure the door’s shut when we talk about our menstrual cycle. Actually, in my workshop, I want us shouting about it from the rooftops!

Is this something you’d love for your tween?

“We loved doing the online workshop with Tara!

Both myself and my 12 year old learned so many things. Tara made sure to explain things thoroughly, kept it comfortable for us to participate and ask questions and we had a lot of fun through out! My daughter and her friends found it a great way to learn about periods in a positive way! Thank you Tara for the workshop and all of your beautiful energy!!"

- Milli and Aryana (12)

“Tara did an amazing job of creating a safe space where girls could ask questions, share experiences and feel supported.

Before signing up, I wasn’t sure whether my daughter was ready for the content as puberty seems a way off for her, but it is wonderful to see how prepared she is now, and how this experience has helped normalise not only talking openly about our bodies, but the idea that we are cyclical beings and all the self-acceptance that comes with that."

This workshop is about to

Transform your tween’s life for the better!

"My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed Tara's workshop. She is passionate about this subject and makes it easy for both adults and kids to understand. My daughter came out feeling really positive about her period and I was happy that she learnt so much in a fun environment. I will definitely recommend it to my friends..."

Poonam and Antayla (10)

"Tara was really welcoming and made everyone feel at ease, both mothers and daughters. She is really open and easy to chat to and my daughter loved the workshop and said she learnt loads. I would definitely recommend it to others."

Lulu and Mimi (12)

"The workshops were simply AMAZING in providing period education and helping smash period taboos!! Although we are open as a family on all things menstruation I was searching for a while for something like this as I felt they needed to hear the actual facts before they were 'taught' it at school! It's helped dispel the fear and shame"

Sarah, Athena (9), Harmonie (7)

We weren’t all told this, but we are CYCLICAL.

Without understanding this part of ourselves, we only know half of what we need to know. And that’s simply not enough.

We spend our time wondering why we feel different each week, why our energies fluctuate, and why we can’t always be in ‘go, go’ go’ mode! We think we’re broken. But that’s not the case. We’re simply cyclical.

The good news?

We’re not supposed to be the same person every day. Instead of looking outside of ourselves to validate our mood swings and to feel ‘normal’ (what does that even mean?!), all the answers we need lie right inside of us.

And that’s exactly what I’m about to teach your tween!

"When I heard about Tara's workshop I was keen for my daughter to attend as I want her to have a good relationship with her period and be empowered to look after her health. It was a safe and supportive environment, where they could share and ask questions without feeling judged. Tara was amazing - she was calm and encouraging. Every girl needs this workshop."

A.R and A.M (9)

I am so very thankful to have had the opportunity to attend Tara's workshops alongside my 8 year old daughter. It has improved our relationship and communication hugely, and has helped me push past the 'awkward' conversations I remember having with my own parents about growing up.

Lucy and Libby (8)

"My daughter and I signed up for Tara’s Tween Period workshop as she had started to get quite anxious about what was going to happen. The course was fun and informative, as a peri-menopausal woman I wished that my younger self had been able to do one of Tara’s courses. Tara teaches with great compassion and she made the course fun and interesting for the girls."

By the end of this workshop your tween will:


Walk away with a fun, shared learning experience that enables them to use that knowledge and power as they navigate the tricky teenage years - and the rest of their lives


Feel more at ease chatting to you about their fears, thoughts, and feelings around their changing body and range of emotions


Understand what is happening with their body and feel confident and prepared when they get their periods WITHOUT the glowing red face of embarrassment.

It’s time to break down the taboo and learn about our cycles and how it really works FOR us!

Who am I and why am I running this workshop?

Hi, I’m Tara. Women's Hormone Coach and Abdominal Therapist, empowering adults, teens, and tweens to take back their power of their menstrual cycles.

Me and all my clients: “Oh, I wish I had known this when I was younger!”

“I signed up for this workshop for my daughter to learn about puberty.

I liked that it would be done in a small intimate group by a trusted and concerned adult where my daughter would not be intimidated to voice her thoughts or questions. The workshop more than met this, as Tara is warm, funny and engaging. My daughter enjoyed it despite not being keen to attend beforehand."

- Nafisa and Mia (11)​

“Tara’s tween workshop provided Millie and I with an invaluable insight into body changes and periods.

Tara made the workshop super fun and interactive, equipping Millie and I with a fantastic level of knowledge and confidence to embrace what to expect in the near future. I feel incredibly grateful that we have experienced this workshop, sharing thoughts, ideas and feelings all helps us to become much more empowered. Any parent with a tween this course is highly recommended”

- Rachel and Millie (10)

“There was lots of laughter and fun during the 4 online tween sessions

Tara made the sessions very interactive and the amount of information these girls have on periods is so much more than I ever knew. My 9-year-old is really well informed and prepared for this next phase of her life. Plus, she loved the goodie bag we received. The caregiver's session was fab - I now feel confident in guiding my daughter through puberty and in my own journey through perimenopause. It was great to learn the tummy massage which I've shared with my daughter and all about the great sustainable period products that are now available for both her and myself. This is truly a brilliant workshop and I highly recommend this to all tweens and their families.

Do you remember when you got your first period?

I bet you remember exactly where you were and how you felt when you first saw the blood. You might have felt surprise or excitement, but for a lot of us it may have been more like fear or embarrassment. One thing’s for sure, most people with periods wish they’d been better prepared or KNEW more ahead of their period making its first appearance (I know I do!)

You see, I only learnt that we are cyclical in my late 30’s!

We have this inner rhythm we can use to our advantage - it’s our SUPERPOWER. But that’s not how it felt for me (and I’m sure, a lot of us) when I was growing up. Nope, we feel we are broken or crazy for not being the same person every. single. day.

But understanding yourself and your cycle from the start can change EVERYTHING. I feel this is the missing piece in women’s mental health. And that’s why I’m so excited to teach your tweens about their periods,to understand how their bodies work, and to feel empowered by this part of them!

“I signed up for the workshop to open a dialogue about periods with my daughter.

I would have really benefited from something like this when I was a tween. I learnt a lot from the mums session - things I wish I'd known years ago! Tara was welcoming, friendly and incredibly well informed, making us all very at ease straight away. I had been looking for a workshop like this for a while and was very pleased with Tara's fun, modern and informative take on it. A good balance between science facts and a natural, cycle based approach."

- Jackie and Tabby (10)

"Along my adult journey I have realised that I didn't know much about my body growing up!

When I came across Tara’s workshop I was excited that finally young girls can understand and be made aware of their changing bodies scientifically and holistically! The workshop was well received by my daughter and her friends and it's amazing to know that they are now mentally well equipped to take on their personal period journeys 🙂 The massage and how to choose products was such a great tip for these girls! I wish someone had told me all this when I was growing up!"

- Bhavana and Lara (12)

It doesn’t have to be the same way anymore.

Periods no longer have to be this gross, embarrassing thing we feel ‘icky’ even talking about. We get to inspire our tweens to think differently, talk positively, and appreciate this part of them that is themselves so they can be better equipped for the rest of their lives!

Are you ready to start this positive period journey?


I’ll be honest, many kids are not keen to attend these workshops when they hear about them, and are gently encouraged (bribed?) by their parents/caregivers to attend! Here are a few ideas that may help persuade them. Perhaps end the workshop with a special treat like an activity they enjoy or their favourite meal. Get a friend of theirs to do the workshop too or if you have a friendship group in mind you can book a private workshop for them. Lastly, this is not a cringey class, like at school. The workshop is fun and interactive (we create models, crafts and do colouring in) and there are plenty of laughs.

Absolutely! The workshop will fill in any gaps in their knowledge about their period that they may not know yet. If they are struggling with their period, they will learn ways to support themselves every month and ease any worries they have. Also, they definitely don’t need to share with me or the group whether they have started

It was great news when menstrual health education was added to the curriculum here in the UK in 2020. However, teachers have very limited time and resources to cover everything in depth. Sadly the teachers don’t cover that people with periods are cyclical (and so it’s normal to have different emotions and energy through their cycle) and what causes common period problems and the easy steps to solve them. Often school teachers only have one 40-min session with a large classroom of kids. Whereas these workshops are for 6-8 kids over 4 hours!

Definitely! Whether it is an in-person or online workshop you are welcome to stay for as long as you like so your tween feels comfortable.

I totally understand why you’d think the price is high for a kid’s workshop. You’re actually investing in a life-skill for you and your tween. The Arvigo self-care massage can ease period pain and digestive issues, whatever your age. You will learn simple ways to support them through puberty and how you can navigate perimenopause. Your tween learning how to track their cycle will give them a skill to understand themselves and plan their schedule better, throughout their life, so they feel happier and avoid burnout. Being confident to use washable period products saves money each year in disposables. Plus, the goodie bag is valued at over £25 and is packed with loads of great things which your tween will be able to use. 

I’d love to answer your questions! You can email me at

"A wonderfully informative session full of all the stuff our teens/tweens should know but no-one is teaching.

What a privilege to learn about being cyclical at such a young age, I wish I’d learnt this!!"

- Kathryn and Skye (12)

When I heard about Tara's workshop, I immediately wanted to sign up my daughter.

Having Tara guide our daughters, and also us mothers, was amazing. We all gained a deeper understanding of our bodies, puberty and perimemopause, and the choices we can make to better manage the whole experience. I would have loved a workshop like this when I first got my period! I highly recommended Tara's online workshop.
