I write regularly for the national press including bylines in The Guardian, The Times and The Independent.


Sample articles in the broadsheets include:

  • 'Is mental illness real?'
  • 'It's time to talk about suicide and middle-aged men'
  • 'Why do people self-harm?'
  • 'The psychological tricks women use to cope with harassment'
  • 'Gas-lighting': Very real, little understood'
  • 'Have I got depression?'


I am interviewed regularly for print media with publications as diverse as Grazia, VICE, The Telegraph, The Sun and The Guardian.





I have significant experience on TV and the radio.


Sample appearances include:

  • Newsnight on 'Digital Narcissism'
  • Sky News on 'Adolescence'
  • Channel Four on 'Appearance'
  • ArtAngel on 'Psychoanalytic Caves'
  • Late Night Women's Hour on 'Anxiety'


I have consulted to several top broadcasting production companies on series design. I have had media training, and am regularly called on by British Psychological Society for comment.




I was one of the first psychologists to theorise, write and debate about how social media might alter mindstates within and outside the clinic. I have a large twitter following, and consistently come out as a top mental health influencer in polls.
