Clinical Psychologist and Founder of The Mind Minute, a toolkit designed to enhance your everyday well-being in 60 seconds or less

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 write the The Mind Minute, a newsletter designed to enhance your everyday well-being in 60 seconds or less. Check it out here

My work is always the 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 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 every day 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.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
