Sophie Cartledge

Founder, Menopause and Hormone health educator

Sophie discovered she was in perimenopause at the age of 40 but encountered challenges as she was repeatedly offered antidepressants and told that she was too young. She had to really fight to receive the appropriate help, during a time when her symptoms significantly affected both her personal and professional life. Feeling ill-prepared to manage these changes and frustrated at the lack of knowledge and support out there, Sophie felt compelled to help make a difference.

She retrained as a menopause and hormone health educator. Her goal is to enable workplaces to foster inclusive and supportive environments for those going through menopause or hormone health challenges and empower individuals to have a more positive menopause and hormone health experience through interactive, educational workshops and training.

Dr Katie Hodginson

Lifestyle Medicine GP

Dr Hodgkinson is a GP with a special interest in lifestyle medicine. A focus on preventative strategies for improving health, combined with expertise in the effects of hormones on the body fuels her dedication to finding wellness solutions. Doctor Hodgkinsonʼs experience as a GP has given her insight into the hugely varied range of factors that influence the health and wellbeing of patients, and the way that conventional medicine does not always fully address these factors.

Her expertise is of great benefit to organisations wanting to support their employees with direct access to a doctor with an interest in menopause and hormones, and invaluable to us at Hormones on the blink as we continue to signpost and share up to date information in the menopause and menstruation space.
