Dr Rebecca Poet

– GP with a special interest in hormone therapy

Rebecca is a highly experienced and empathetic doctor who believes that the correct balance of hormones holds the key to a woman’s emotional and physical well-being.

My Philosophy

Having a hormone imbalance is not in the least bit unusual but can be unnerving, especially if there’s no-one experienced to talk to about your concerns or if you feel that you’re ‘on the clock’. Unfortunately adequate time is something most GPs simply don’t have in routine appointments.

The condition is invariably – and simply – treatable, but some things can’t be rushed. You need time to explain, I need time to get to know you and identify exactly what we’re dealing with. Then, with full understanding, I can tailor a dedicated hormone rebalancing treatment specifically to meet your needs. Because, in my experience, there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution.

Dr Ginny Ponsford

– GP with a special interest in hormone therapy

Ginny is a highly experienced GP who has worked providing women’s healthcare in a number of very different settings around the world.

My Philosophy

I am passionate about supporting women through this transition in their life. I know how much it can affect the whole woman; physically, emotionally, psychologically and sexually. It can have a negative impact on work, family life and relationships.

I believe that good quality holistic menopause care can allow women to continue to lead the life they want to live, as well as providing benefits to their future health. As a British Menopause Society Recognised Menopause Specialist who has also trained in bioidentical hormone therapy I am perfectly placed to tailor a hormone balancing approach that perfectly meets your needs.
