Dr Zoe Schaedel - Menopause Specialist


I am a GP and an accredited Menopause Specialist. I have had a long-term interest in women’s health and I embarked on specialist menopause training because I wanted to make sure all women that I care for have access to the best possible advice about menopause. I have seen so many women struggle to access quality information and treatment and I am delighted to be working alongside Naomi to share my knowledge, skills, and experience to ensure that women get the care that they need for symptoms of menopause.

I am always struck by how broad the impact of menopause can be - affecting so many aspects of a woman’s life. I have a particular interest in how menopause affects sleep, emotional experience, and mood. So many women experience disturbed sleep, low mood, and anxiety and I have undertaken additional training to understand these issues in depth; including training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for menopausal symptoms and for insomnia. I hold the Diploma of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, the Diploma of the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health, and the Advanced Certificate of Menopause Care.

I still work part-time as an NHS GP in Brighton and as a medical educator - training budding GPs and other health professionals (often about menopause!) Outside of work I spend as much time as I can with my husband and two little boys, and the recent addition of our Goldendoodle puppy. Getting outside is really important to me, and I love enjoying the Sussex Countryside!
