JOURNALISM

 

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?' for the Guardian.
  • 'This has been a year of high political anxiety. Here’s how to survive it' for the Guardian.
  • 'Our mental health obsession has fuelled the likes of Brexit and Trump' for the Independent
  • 'The Archers domestic abuse is classic 'Gas-lighting'. Very real, little understood' for the Guardian.

 

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

 

 

BROADCAST

 

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.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA

 

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.

or one of my academic chapters here.
