Biography

Kimberley Wilson is a Chartered Psychologist and author who works in private practice. A passionate advocate for the importance of mental health, she is the author of the book How to Build a Healthy Brain. The book draws on ways to give practical, holistic advice on how you can protect your brain by making simple lifestyle changes.

She is a governor of the Tavistock and Portman NHS Mental Health Trust and the former chair of the British Psychological Society's training committee in counselling psychology. She also managed the psychology service for Holloway Prison, which at the time was Europe’s largest women’s prison.

Kimberley believes the way we think about mental health – as separate from physical health – is flawed. Her philosophy of Whole Body Mental Health is a comprehensive approach to mental health care. Her degree in nutrition informs her approach of looking at the roles food and lifestyle play in our mental health.

Alongside Dr Xand van Tulleken Kimberley hosted the podcast Made of Stronger Stuff on BBC Radio 4. Each episode they went on a journey around the human body exploring a different body part and asked what it can tell us about our innate capacity for change.

A former finalist on the Great British Bake Off, and an award-winning food producer with a degree in nutrition, Kimberley’s work looks at the role food and lifestyle plays in our mental health. She was the featured mental health expert on several Channel 4 documentaries about the impact of Coronavirus, and is a regular contributor to Lorraine on ITV.
