I treat women with POI in specialist menopause clinics, 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. 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 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 project manager for an international training company. 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 from Newcastle upon Tyne and have experience in social media marketing and journalism. After being diagnosed with POI as a teenager, I found The Daisy Network to be the only useful resource for information and a place to connect with other women in the same position. This made me want to offer my help to raise awareness of the 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.
