Before I retrained as a therapist, I was a freelance journalist for many years, writing about health, fitness and numerous other subjects for newspapers, magazines and websites in the UK and around the world. I continue to write now I am a therapist, focusing on my specialist interests: cognitive and schema therapy, mindfulness and all aspects of mental health and wellbeing.

Here is a selection of my blog posts and articles:

  • My Healthy Adult Blog is published on this site, with dozens of posts about common psychological problems, as well as offering some of the techniques I have found most helpful with my clients over the years.
  • I have written a number of blog posts for the Huffington Post on various aspects of mental health and wellbeing.
  • I contribute to Thrive Global (Ariana Huffington's new wellbeing-promoting project) on a regular basis, writing about my specialist subjects.
  • My books and book chapters are available here.
A mirror reflects everything, yet it is not altered by what it reflects and does not judge those reflections. If the mind is like a mirror, it is not conditioned by what appears in front of it.
