I have worked as a clinical psychologist for a number of years and bring a wealth of expertise, knowledge and experience to my work.
I work in the NHS treating refugees with PTSD who have survived torture, war and sexual violence. I also teach and train other psychologists nationally and internationally, from Ireland to Iraq.
It's a great privilege to do this work but as some light relief I started to write my newsletter The Mind Minute which is full of my best psychology tips and techniques you can put into action in under a minute. Over time this has turned into my book, Stressilient: How To Beat Stress and Build Resilience, which you can buy here. My aim was to create an indispensable, easy and effective go-to guide to help you get from surviving to thriving.
Whether I am treating a refugee woman from Somalia or a professional woman from London, my work is always informed by the same principle - to provide high quality, science-backed psychology to help make a difference in day to day living.
Prior to gaining my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from UCL, I spent ten years making documentaries for the BBC and Channel 4 and worked on programmes such as Panorama and Dispatches. And before that, I studied Classics at Oxford. So, I have moved around a bit and I love trying to combine all of the experience I have had in different areas of my life to make psychology accessible in everyday life.
I live in London with my husband and young daughter. In my spare time, I like to partake in marathons. Box-set marathons. On the sofa.
