I treat women with POI in specialist menopause clinics in the NHS, many of whom have been provided with little information or treatment options following their diagnosis and are undergoing great emotional distress. I am passionate about making a difference for women and raising understanding of this condition.
I have worked for several years as part of a menopause clinic team that has a specialist interest in POI in the NHS. I was saddened by the many stories from women who had been poorly understood by health professionals and hope to raise awareness of POI within the primary care community.
Specialist psychotherapist / counsellor
I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor in women's health in the NHS and am a long standing patron of The Daisy Network and am also a trustee of NAPS (National Association for Premenstrual Symptoms).
Treasurer and IT
In my professional life I am an IT contractor. I’m happy to volunteer my skills and experience to Daisy because the lack of support I received when and after I was unexpectedly diagnosed with POI has made me want to make a difference.
I am a teacher in North Tyneside with experience in social media marketing, content writing and PR. I found The Daisy Network to be the only useful resource for POI and a place to connect with other women in the same position, this made me want to offer my help to raise awareness of this amazing service.
I have worked in the Healthcare industry for over 4 years and have experience in Advertising, Journalism and Marketing. After meeting the team and being introduced to Daisy at a national menopause event, I was keen to support and volunteer where possible.
