Hello, I'm Soraya Sheikh.

I'm a Medicine Woman, Women's Coach and Menstrual Mentor, and I advocate that a healthy menstrual cycle is the foundation of a woman’s physical, psychological and spiritual well-being. I teach women how their body’s natural, cyclical rhythm can empower them to make informed decisions about their health and well-being, and how it serves as a portal to heightened states of consciousness. By embracing feminine consciousness, women can approach their bleeding years as a rite of passage, celebrating the evolution of this life phase. If you want to be empowered with insights and tools to improve your well-being, helping you to live a life of vibrant health, I welcome you here.

You deserve to feel at peace, whole and comfortable in your body

A Paradigm Shift


We are being called to embrace a more holistic approach to women's health - one that recognises the foundational role of our sacred menstrual cycle. Menstrual Cycle Awareness is not just about understanding reproductive health; it's about recognising its profound implications for women's physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being.

By acknowledging the unique complexities of female biology, listening to and respecting women's voices and experiences, we see huge improvements in women's health and well-being. By honouring the rhythmic fluctuations of our menstrual cycle, we can better tailor our approach to how we care for ourselves, empowering us to achieve vibrant health and vitality.

Most haven't been taught the nuances of our menstrual cycle, forcing us to live out of alignment with our cyclical nature which has detrimental effects on us, on our communities and on Mother Earth. Your menstrual cycle is a blessing and a healthy cycle is the foundation of your physical, psychological and spiritual well-being.

Together, we can rewrite the narrative from Periods = Pain to Menstrual Cycle = Magic.  

The women I’ve mentored have learnt how to live in harmony with their body’s natural cyclical rhythm, helping them reverse issues like depression and anxiety, PMS and PMDD, bloating and cramps, endometriosis and PCOS, which has afforded them the opportunity to reconnect with the power and wisdom of themselves.

Understanding our menstrual cycle is the foundation for a thriving life. It allows us to experience joy, to achieve our potential, to cultivate feminine leadership skills and contribute positively to society. I'm here to guide you on a journey of vibrant health, self-discovery and empowerment. Together, we will explore the intricate rhythms of your menstrual cycle, uncovering the wisdom and healing potential within and introducing you to the magic of your menstrual cycle.

Your Womb is the Source of Life.

Your Menstrual Cycle is Magic.

Your Blood is Medicine.

Discover Yourself Course

Discover Yourself is a 7-week, self-paced, Menstrual Cycle Awareness Course. It teaches you how to live in harmony with your body’s cyclical rhythm, how reconnect to your inner wisdom and can:

🩸 Enhance Self-Awareness: By tracking your menstrual cycle, you can become more attuned to the changes and patterns in your body and emotions. This heightened self-awareness can lead to better self-care and a deeper understanding of your health.

🩸 Improve Physical Health: Understanding your cycle can help identify irregularities or potential health issues early on. Regular tracking can alleviate period pain, heavy bleeding, bloating, an irregular or missing cycle, mood swings, low sex drive, depression, anxiety, uterine fibroids, endometriosis and PCOS.

🩸 Improve Mental Health: By recognising patterns in mood and behaviour linked to your menstrual cycle, you can better manage mental health conditions such as premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) or premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

🩸 Create a Sacred Feminine Connection: Cycle awareness can help you connect with your sacred feminine energy, honouring the natural cycles of creation, maintenance, and release. This connection can be spiritually empowering; reconnecting you with the Divine. 

🩸 Reduce Pain: Tracking your cycle helps in identifying patterns related to menstrual pain, bloating, headaches, and other symptoms. This can lead to better management strategies, such as increasing self-care, adjusting diet, and exercise during specific times of your cycle.

🩸 Empower You: Understanding your menstrual cycle can empower you to take control of your reproductive health. It provides you with a sense of autonomy and confidence in managing your body and health.

🩸 Enhance Fertility Awareness: If you’re trying to conceive or avoid pregnancy, MCA provides valuable information about fertile windows and ovulation. This can improve the chances of conception or aid in natural family planning methods.

🩸 Strengthen Relationships: Sharing menstrual cycle information with partners can improve understanding and empathy in relationships. It helps partners recognise and support each other through different phases of your cycle.

🩸 Optimise Productivity and Activity Planning: Recognising the seasons of your menstrual cycle can help in scheduling tasks and activities according to your energy levels and mood variations. For instance, the follicular phase often brings higher energy and creativity, while the luteal phase might be better suited for reflection and rest.

🩸 Teach Lifestyle Adjustments: MCA can guide dietary, exercise, and lifestyle choices throughout the month. For example, certain phases may benefit from increased nutrient intake, different exercise routines, or altered sleep patterns.

Success Stories

"I am honestly surprised by the level of insight I have gained from the practice of menstrual cycle awareness. It has enabled me to develop a greater understanding of myself and to hold space for my changing emotional and physical states with greater compassion and kindness. In developing this greater understanding of self I find my relationship with my partner is more harmonious, as I am better able to understand and communicate my changing needs."

Samantha | Yoga Teacher

"For about a year before I joined Discover Yourself, my periods were about 55 days apart. I had visited my GP who suggested going on the Pill to regulate my cycle, but I really didn't want to do that due to all the side effects they can cause. Within 2 months of working with Soraya, my period came at 26 days, which was amazing! I also started to see patterns in my emotional state. It's such a good feeling as I feel so much more connected simply by paying attention."

Mairi | Trainee Counsellor

“By charting my cycle and learning to anticipate when I might be feeling more vulnerable, I now know that during certain seasons of my cycle, I might need extra rest, support from loved ones, or simply more time for myself. This awareness has empowered me to take control of my mental health in a way I never thought possible.”
