I obtained a Batchelor of Science and Masters degrees in Psychology at the University of Nottingham before embarking on a medical degree at University of London.
After qualifying as a doctor in 2003 I trained in Medicine and Surgery at Barnet Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital London. I continued my training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London where I obtained diplomate status with the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecologists and Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health.
I worked in Accident and Emergency Medicine at Kingston Hospital and Psychiatry at the Priory, Roehampton.
I gained membership with the Royal College of General Practitioners in 2010 and have worked as a GP with specialist interest in women's health and Menopause since in NHS practice in South West London.
I completed my British Menopause Society specialist menopause training and membership under the mentorship of Nick Panay with whom I still work closely.
I am a member of the British Menopause Society, Royal College of General Practitioners, British Medical Association GMC and Irish Medical Council registered.
I am passionate about providing excellence and a patient-centred approach to menopause care and run weekly private menopause clinics. I work Tuesday mornings at the Groves Medical Centre .
I have five children, including twins, and divide my time between working as a menopause specialist, GP and mum. I am therefore familiar with the struggles of keeping work and family balanced, healthy and happy.
I am a firm believer in treating the patient as a person and exploring their ideas, concerns and expectations to enable me to best help in a warm, supportive sensitive environment.
I am committed to providing patient-centred holistic care in close partnership with my patients. With sixteen years experience I have the breadth as well as dept of knowledge and experience in understanding how menopause impacts other medical conditions and vice versa.
