Liverpool expert personal trainer will host a day dedicated to empowering women to take control of their bodies at every stage of life, from their twenties to post-menopause.
Harriet McGuffie, a personal trainer, created the Women’s Wellness Day to help women understand the physical changes they are likely to face as they age.
On Sunday, November 12, the event at Hope Street Hotel will feature a wide range of experts covering every aspect of wellness, from gynaecological and sexual health to skin and hair care.
Harriet has worked in the fitness industry for over 25 years, owning a fitness studio in Woolton and co-founding Get Pregnancy Fit, which provides prenatal and postnatal support.
Throughout her career, she has worked with female clients of all ages, assisting them in achieving their personal objectives.This one-on-one training experience has given Harriet insight into the changes that women’s bodies go through, particularly during pregnancy, post birth, and menopause.
She is passionate about providing women with the awareness and knowledge they need to navigate the changes that occur in each decade.
Women’s Wellness Day aims to combine education, self-care, and empowerment into a single inspiring session.
Dr. Nicola Mullin, a sexual and reproductive health consultant, will be speaking about all things sexual health. She is a Sexual and Reproductive Health Consultant and the Clinical Lead for Sexual Health in Knowsley, which is part of the Royal Liverpool University Hospital Trust.
Dr. Nicola Mullin has had an interest in women’s health and menopause care since she was a trainee in obstetrics and gynaecology and ran the community menopause clinic in Chester Sexual Health Service for several years. She is passionate about menopause education, is involved with the Wirral Menopause Community CIC, and helps run their menopause cafes. In her spare time, she is a forensic doctor at SafePlace, the Merseyside sexual assault referral centre, and a brownie and girl guide leader.
Breathwork expert Samantha Flynn, who runs I Breathe with Sammy workshops, will also be sharing the power of breath and techniques to harness it. Having worked extensively with mums-to-be and new mums, and being a mum herself, women’s health physio Sarah Norris from The Physiotherapy Centre will be talking specifically about hormone-related and pelvic health.
Dr. Lorraine Dinardo will discuss post-natal pelvic health and how to prevent perineal trauma with those who are planning a pregnancy, expecting a baby, or have recently given birth.
Skin specialist Nicola Harris and hairdresser Tanya Scott will also both be drawing on more than 25 years’ experience in their industries.
Nicola, who is a holistic facialist and educator, will focus on skin changes and concerns at different times in women’s lives, while Tanya will be talking about hair issues and especially the effects of ageing.

There are 30 tickets available. Tickets are £100 per person and can be purchased here.
Harriet McGuffie explained:
“I work with women of all ages and have seen first-hand how the different stages of life can pose challenges when it comes to female health and well-being. I truly believe that knowledge is power; if you know what to expect and how to deal with the different stages of life, you’ll be better equipped to face them head on and come out a stronger version of yourself.
“Topics like menopause or postpartum don’t need to rule you – you can navigate these life changes with effective tips. We’ll also be delving into skin health, nutrition and fitness to help our guests feel their best from the inside out. Tickets are limited so please book in advance to secure yours and we very much look forward to seeing you there on Sunday 12th November at Hope Street Hotel.”
