Offers appointments in Chester
GP and Menopause Specialist
Amen grew up in Cheltenham before moving to the North West where she completed her undergraduate and postgraduate medical training. Her lifelong passion for Women’s Health fuelled her to achieving her Diploma in Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care in 2002 and in gaining additional training and experience in managing Women’s Health issues in a community setting, including the insertion of IUDs and hormonal implants. This wide range of experience has allowed her to provide patients with more options for contraception, and in the management of menstrual disorders and menopause.
As well as her experience working in the NHS, she spent 11 years working as a GP with a special interest in Women’s Health in Sydney, Australia. There, she gained further accreditation to provide shared antenatal care, managing pregnancies in combination with the local public hospital, and experience in aesthetic treatments for her patients. She regularly participated in the New South Wales Health “GP in schools” program, helping to support and educate high school students on all aspects of their health. She undertook additional training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for General Practice, allowing her to provide more formal focused psychological strategies to support her patients and, in 2016, was also the team doctor for the Australian Youth Climbing team at the Youth World Championships in China. Amen is passionate about health promotion and disease prevention, and in enabling patients to take control of their own health through a holistic approach. She feels strongly about equipping women with the knowledge to help them live well, not only in their reproductive years but beyond.
Outside of her work, she enjoys running, travelling, and spending time with her family and friends. She is a proud mum of three, twin daughters and a son, plus an exuberant Cavapoo called Maisie.
You can see Amen at our Chester clinic for an in person appointment.
