Aromatherapy for Women Course Case study: meet Glenda

WHO will benefit from the Aromatherapy for Women course?

Meet Glenda. Glenda is 48 years old and has nearby aging parents, a husband (Tom) and two older children. They are aged 17 (Dylan) and 21 (Courtney). Dylan is navigating his upcoming last year of high school. He tends to stay out a bit too late sometimes, and Glenda waits up for him. Courtney is attending a local university and is expecting her first baby.

Glenda works at an accounting firm, and March and April are very taxing on her. The hours she puts in means working through many lunches and getting home around 7pm. Sometimes dinner is made already, other times it is not. On these days, she often picks up something on the way home. On a good day it’s a Safeway chicken. Sometimes, it’s pizza…

She is just trying to make it through tax season, but right now her daughter also really needs her. Tom really does try to be supportive, but he doesn’t really understand what has happened to the women he married! She always seems tired, a bit distant, has been gaining weight, and he’s concerned that she might be a bit depressed.
