Featuring Hello Therapeutics' Co-Founder Mardie Oakes and Chief Medical Advisor Myra Hunter, PhD

The Guardian: "Talking therapies could help women through menopause, study finds"

"Writing in the Journal of Affective Disorders, Spector and colleagues described how they pooled data from 22 robust studies that looked at the impact of [Cognitive Behavioral Therapy] CBT, [Mindfulness Based Interventions] MBI and other interventions such as marital support on the psychological symptoms of the menopause.


Considered together, they found such therapies had a medium to large effect on quality of life, and a small but positive impact on anxiety and depression."
