Change your mind…

Hello, welcome.

My latest project is WHY DO I FEEL? a podcast exploring the emotions that make us. It has its own page on this website so do please check it out.

My most recent book is all about the strange and contested concepts of mental health and illness. It was a Sunday Times Book of the Year and longlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize. I’d love for you to read it.

Take a look around this site to find out more about me and my writing, and please feel free to get in touch.

‘Absolutely blew me away… I cannot think of another book in the field that would come close to this. In my opinion it is an essential read for those in the mental health arena'

‘A convincing portrayal of an articulate boy in the grip of a powerful illness, and an absorbing account of a grief undischarged’
