Sharon James, UAE menopause coach


Menopause coach Sharon James is on a mission to do for the UAE what Davina McCall did in the UK – drive education and change people’s mindset around menopause.

With 30 years of international experience in the health and fitness industry, Sharon guides women through a period of transformation as they navigate midlife, menopause, and beyond. She combines scientific understanding and evidence-based methods with a passion for helping people take control of their mind and body in a way that works for them.

Sharon wants every woman to enjoy their midlife, and she knows the challenges they face from personal experience. Aged 44, having always made her health a priority, she was running marathons, completing triathlons and travelling around the world. Then suddenly, things shifted. Her diet and exercise habits stayed the same, but she noticed her weight creeping up, her shape changing, and energy levels declining. Not willing to lose her identity, Sharon applied everything she’d learnt over the years and studied menopause in depth, using herself as the subject. Focusing on facts, not fads, she found an approach that worked and took back control. Now she wants to spread the word.

Sharon believes strongly in the importance of education at every level, from the individual, family, and friends to businesses, healthcare professionals, and government. She works with multinational organisations, speaking to their management and staff, and is regularly involved in thought leadership discussions. At a British Business Group session during Arab Health 2023, which looked at collaboration opportunities between the UK and the Middle East, Sharon spoke about addressing menopause, gathering data, increasing training, and raising awareness.
