Nutritionalist, Chartered Pyschologist and former finalist in Great British Bake Off, 2018
The way we think about mental health – as separate from physical health – is flawed. My philosophy of Whole Body Mental Health is a comprehensive approach to mental health care; integrating evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle factors with psychological therapy.
A former finalist on the Great British Bake Off, and an award-winning food producer with a degree in nutrition, my work looks at the role food and lifestyle plays in our mental health, including disordered eating, the gut-brain axis and our emotional relationship with food.
I am a Chartered Psychologist, and a Governor of an NHS Mental Health Trust and the former Chair of the British Psychological Society’s Training Committee in Counselling Psychology – the group responsible for monitoring and assessing the standards of Counselling Psychology training across the UK.
I am passionate about the power of psychology to transform lives and I’m committed to demystifying the theories and putting the information into the hands of the people who need it.
My first book How to Build a Healthy Brain was published by Yellow Kite in March 2020.
The way we treat mental illness is changing. Join the revolution!
