Dr Wendy Molefi

Private GP, Menopause Specialist, Wellness Coach

BM MRCGP DRCOG DFSRH MSt in MBCT (Oxford)


Specialises in

I am a highly experienced GP and Menopause Specialist recognised by the British Menopause Society. With my background in wellness coaching and mindfulness teaching, I bring an integrated and preventative approach to my clinical practice. 

My main focus is to support women through the menopause transition by providing them with expert evidence-base advice and treatment.

I firmly believes that health and wellbeing matters at all times, not just when things go wrong. All too often many of us put our health niggles and stresses to one side, until they become a real problem.

I have a special interest in the psychological impact of the menopause on women's quality of life. My dissertation on ‘The role of Mindfulness Based Intervention in facilitating psychological adjustment in the menopause’ was published in the British Menopause Society Journal and presented at the International Mindfulness Conference in South Africa.

I have a strong track record of helping my clients achieve their goals in improving their health and wellbeing. I am an accomplished international speaker and advocate for increased mental health awareness and training on self-care.

I facilitate workshops and retreats to inform and enable women, most of whom are still working, to flourish in the menopause transition. I also support organisations to understand the impact of the menopause on women in the workplace and how they can support them.

I offer one to one mindfulness coaching as well as 8 week mindfulness (MBCT) courses.
