I am a mental health journalist and am the Head Writer at Happiful magazine, where I have been since joining the team in 2017.

In my time at Happiful, I have had the opportunity to work on investigative features, meaningful and uplifting stories, and interview cultural trailblazers – and you will find a selection of these pieces on this site. 

Mental health is a topic that I feel passionately about, and I am consistently touched by the willingness of those who share their experiences with me to open up about something that has been stigmatised for so long.

Calling upon my experience as a mental health journalist, as well as lived experience, I offer mental health sensitivity reader and consultancy services to support writers and brands approaching these topics in their work. I have worked with major publishing houses in the UK and US, as well as independent authors, and companies seeking copy advice.

I am happy to speak to attitudes towards mental health stigma, prevalence, cultural relevance, and progress on podcasts, panels, and shows. Browse some of my previous appearances.
