Meet The Team

Hello! I’m Anne

British Menopause Society Accredited Menopause Specialist & Consultant Gynaecologist

I have been a Consultant within the NHS and private sectors for 15 years. During this time, I have witnessed many changes within both sectors, but I remain convinced that consultant-led care, such that which exists within the private sector, is the best model available. This offers patients complete continuity of care, as well as the expertise and experience which comes with the extensive training undergone by UK consultants.

Hi, I’m Judith

Practice Manager

I joined the practice two years ago in 2011, having had an extensive background in managing a busy private psychiatric team.  My role is to make the patient experience as streamlined, efficient and enjoyable as possible.  I am always here to help address any concerns and to help steer you through the sometimes difficult and stressful process of making a private medical insurance claim.  This can be more fraught than patients anticipate and part of my role is using my expertise to help you through each stage.  I am readily available via phone, mobile and email, and always happy to take your queries, aiming to respond as soon as possible, and usually within 24 hours.  I pride myself on being approachable and friendly during what can be a stressful time for many patients.

I was born and bred in Sunderland and despite living “down South” for 20 years, have retained not only my Northern accent, but I like to think I have also kept  the Northeners’ strong work ethic, combined with a sense of humour, which always helps in times of stress!

Hi, I’m Anita

Medical Herbalist

As a Medical Herbalist, I combine the traditional knowledge and techniques of herbal medicine with modern pharmacological research to provide an effective and complementary approach, in conjunction with conventional medicine.

 Having gained a degree in BSc honours in Herbal Medicine, I have kept up to date with the latest knowledge and advancements by continuing training through mandatory annual updates. I began training in 1987 and became a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists in 1991, before completing an MSc in herbal medicine in 2006, so I have years of extensive experience within the specialty.

Since 2006 I have regularly seen patients at the Integrated Gynaecology Clinic which I run in conjuntion with Anne Henderson. This innovative clinic has provided help for women with complex pelvic and vulval pain, amongst other conditions. In particular we have had considerable success in treating menopausal patients whom evidence suggests tolerate herbal medicine very well and is an arguably safer alternative to convential HRT. 

Medical herbalists are interested in the whole body and not merely isolated symptoms. We prescribe treatments suited to the complexity of patient physiology and take a holistic appoach to all conditions. Following the initial consultation, should you decide to proceed with treatment, I would look at changing areas of your lifestyle, alongside herbal medicine, prepared as a unique prescription to you.
