Download Inna’s new FREE ‘Healthy Happy Hormones’ ebook by clicking here: https://www.subscribepage.com/healthyhappyhormones

Learn all about perimenopause. What is it? How do you know you are in it? And how can you feel good throughout the process? You will also learn about why your hormones need help and what to eat and what to avoid. Why dieting and extreme exercise may not work for you anymore.


Inna Wearn is a registered Nutritional Therapist, Functional Medicine Practitioner, and Health Coach.

After years of living a hectic London life, working in a demanding corporate environment, and struggling with a multitude of various symptoms, she decided to take control of her health. Her passion for food and curiosity about supporting health by natural means led her to the decision to retrain as a Nutritional Therapist.

She has undertaken rigorous training at the well-known Institute for Optimum Nutrition, qualifying with a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy. She is a full member of the British Association of Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine and registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.

She has a special interest in women’s health, particularly perimenopause. She provides evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle advice that centres around your health and wellbeing.

Inna helps women fix their relationship with food and eat the ‘right’ things for them – which is more important than ever after 40. The truth is there is no magic pill. You have got to deal with your chemistry (your symptoms and what is going on inside), your lifestyle, and how you feel about who you are. When you work on all these elements together, the results can be truly astonishing.

As a woman in her 50’s, Inna is passionate about supporting women just like you. Women who want to lose weight, regain vitality, have more energy, find confidence, and restore hormonal balance.

Inna offers a variety of services including hormone balancing, weight loss, and health coaching that are designed to help women in perimenopause and menopause, escape from hormone turmoil, and feel amazing in their body.

'Leveraging Diversity by Inclusion' with guest speaker Awin Tavakoli

Thursday, 9 July at 20:00 CET (20:00 Zurich, 19:00 London, 14:00 New York)


Join Awin Tavakoli, Lawyer and Business Advisor and Founder & CEO of the Tavakoli Advisory, as she examines the topic of Diversity & Inclusion and the business around it. 

This Webinar will be moderated by Ariane Tavakol, Personal Reinvention Architect and Blog owner.

In the past few years the business around diversity has been booming, but not the diversity itself. In 2019 US companies spent over 8 billion USD on diversity training, which shows the relevancy of the issue but not necessarily the results. As a part of ASW - a global community, how do you experience and handle diversity?

Everyday in the world millions of decisions - at work and at home - are being made based on automatic preferences and prejudices; the so-called Biases. This is not always happening intentionally and consciously, but most of the time the unconscious biases guide us towards decisions with unfavourable outcomes. As long as we have a brain, we also have biases. Our brain seeks survival and safety, and being near people who think, look and act like us. Fact is though that innovation and diversity do not go in line with safety, similarity or sameness. Innovation likes risks, but safety doesn't!


Born and raised in a large Kurdish family in Tehran, Iran, Awin experienced the Islamic revolution in 1979 and grew up during the brutal war between Iran and Iraq. As a Kurd she had to cope with being labeled and excluded as ethnic minority in her own country. Also growing up to an ambitious rebel young girl aiming for the stars under the authority of an Islamic male dominated suppressive regime wasn’t easy!

With age of 26 Awin moved to Europe to start a new life but again it was about fitting in and adapting to other types of rules and clichés. After going through numerous challenges in her private and professional life, she ultimately decided to focus on building the new instead of fighting the old. In the meantime she is running her own boutique advisory firm in the heart of Zurich City and has built a powerful global brand around her person and her mission. Awin has helped and inspired tens of thousands of people by sharing her story and her mission on international stages and summits around the world and she is disrupting the legal industry by establishing a brand new way of practicing law.

Join Catherine Sanderson, the Manwell Family Professor of Life Sciences (Psychology) at Amherst College , as she examines what is the science about happiness and what role do money, friends, children, weather, age and religion play in making us feel better.

This talk presents both surprising and not-so-surprising information on the science behind happiness. What role do money, marriage, friends, children, weather, age, and religion play in making us feel happier? Is happiness stable over time? How can happiness be increased? Dr. Catherine Sanderson will describe cutting-edge research from the field of positive psychology on the factors that do (and do not) predict happiness, and provide participants with practical (and relatively easy!) ways to increase their own psychological well-being.

About Catherine Sanderson

Catherine Sanderson received a bachelor's degree in Psychology, with a specialisation in Health and Development, from Stanford University, and received both masters and doctoral degrees in psychology from Princeton University.

Her research has received grant funding from the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Health. Professor Sanderson has published over 25 journal articles and book chapters in addition to four college textbooks, middle school and high school health textbooks, and trade books on parenting as well as how mindset influences happiness, health, and even how long we live (The Positive Shift). In 2012, she was named one of the country's top 300 professors by the Princeton Review.

Professor Sanderson speaks regularly for public and corporate audiences on topics such as the science of happiness, the power of emotional intelligence, the art of ageing well, and the psychology of courage and inaction. These talks have been featured in numerous mainstream media outlets, including The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Atlantic, CNN, and CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley. She also writes a weekly blog for Psychology Today - Norms Matter - that examines the power of social influence on virtually all aspects of our lives.

Her latest trade book, published in North America as Why We Act: Turning Bystanders Into Moral Rebels (Harvard University Press) and internationally as The Bystander Effect: The Psychology of Courage and Inaction (HarperCollins), examines why good people so often stay silent or do nothing in the face of wrongdoing. For a preview of the topics addressed in this book, watch Catherine’s TEDx talk on the Psychology of Inaction, which describes the factors that contribute to inaction and provides strategies we all can use to help people act, even when those around them are not.

Building resilience with speaker DR PATAPIA TZOTZOLI

Tuesday, 26 May at 19:00 CET (19:00 Zurich, 18:00 London, 13:00 New York)


Join Dr Patapia Tzotzoli, for an interactive webinar to explore resilience and emotional well-being.

It’s inevitable that we’ll all be affected somehow during the coronavirus crisis, either by getting infected or by experiencing disruptions and facing unprecedented challenges in our daily lives. The situation we find ourselves in offers us a unique opportunity to learn some new skills. Adversity helps us build resilience so we can better cope with life’s inevitable difficulties – which is an invaluable attribute to nurture.

We can begin to do our part by tuning in our mindset and consciously committing to do what it takes, however uncomfortable that may be. We must accept the challenge to learn and avoid shirking the responsibility, running away, or turning a blind eye. We can achieve this by taking control of our mind, body, and emotions, and by believing in our abilities to see this through. In the end, our efforts will benefit ourselves, as well as our whole community.

About Dr Patapia Tzotzoli

Dr Patapia Tzotzoli founded My Psychology Clinic where she gained her reputation working as a clinical psychologist with clients on a one-to-one basis in London, and worldwide via online therapy. She specialises in adult mental health and couples therapy. After studying at the University of East London, Oxford, and Cambridge, she trained at the Institute of Psychiatry where she worked across world-renowned NHS Trusts. Dr Tzotzoli is also the CEO and founder of iConcipio Ltd, a digital mental health company that aims to enhance students' resilience and improve their experience in higher education institutions by supporting their mental health, wellbeing, and study skills.

On both a personal and professional level, Dr Tzotzoli has been advocating that we embrace adversity. Our past influences how we think and feel as we face everyday challenges and life’s distressing events and transitions. But by choosing to learn from adversity, we can reclaim the freedom and power to behave as we wish today. Adapting well in the face of adversity is known as resilience; an invaluable attribute to nurture as it empowers us to grow and helps us efficiently navigate a more rewarding life. Dr Tzotzoli strives to study, practice, and build resilience daily. This is how she mindfully endeavour to take care of her mental health. For her, it's a lifetime goal and she finds meaning in helping others make progress on their path to resilience and mental health.

About Danielle Brooker

Danielle Brooker. Joy Coach. Coffee snob. And positive thinking enthusiast.

Danielle spent over a decade building a career in economics and policy, working in the Australian government and the UK charity sector – only to keep finding herself in great jobs she didn’t feel great in.

Reaching a burnout from stress and always being “on” she had to start questioning herself in a whole new way. Which led her to follow her dreams to London and (eventually) establishing her business, The Daisy Patch.

She now works with highly ambitious, stressed-out women in their 30s globally, who are stuck at a crossroads. She takes them from questioning “should I or shouldn’t I quit my job?” to living a joyful life regardless of what job they’re in.

Through her private coaching programmes, group sessions, digital courses and podcast she guides women through phase-of-life transitions (like big career changes or starting a family) to reclaim their lives from busy and finally feel like themselves again.

A Credentialed Practitioner Of Life Coaching and Certified Meta Dynamics Practitioner (an integration of NLP, positive psychology and other modalities)—Danielle uses a blend of tools and techniques from years of her own self-discovery, integrating both strategy and heart-led work. She believes sustainable success and a joyful life comes from asking yourself the right questions and allowing what feels good to lead the way.
