Media and Public Engagement
The breadth of my work and expertise arms me with a unique skill and knowledge base that are often called on to offer expert opinion. I am often invited to deliver talks and keynotes to corporate and academic conferences and public festivals. Additionally I regularly comment on topical issues in print media, TV, or radio programmes. Scroll down the page to see TV appearances on News Programmes and topical TV shows. Keep scrolling and you will find a selection of images from written press contributions. I can be commissioned to write expert pieces for corporate and news clients.

Staying connected in Lockdown
I spoke to the wonderful Dame Esther Rantzen about staying connected in Lockdown for BBC Morning Live. We discussed her fabulous charity work and the difficulties in engaging people who are alone. People often feel they will be a burden or others will be too busy for them. This is never the case. Every means of connection has value – phone, text, video calls, letters, cards, whatever makes you feel comfortable. You can catch the episode on the link below for as long as it is active.
Mental Health and Wellbeing
I was invited on to the BBC1 daytime TV programme Morning Live to film a segment on ways of coping with anxiety. The programme was aired on Tuesday 27th October. Here is the iplayer link to it and you can see a clip below the image too.
