Hi, I’m Dr Alice Boyes, author of The Anxiety Toolkit (2015, Perigee/Penguin).

I blog for Psychology Today and I’m the emotions expert for Women’s Health Australia.

I don’t offer individual therapy anymore but I’m available for keynotes, consultancy on program development, and corporate training in mindfulness and resilience.

I’m now based in USA but I’m originally from New Zealand.

My PhD research about relationships was published in the world’s premier social psychology journal (Journal of Personality and Social Psychology) in 2007.

I used to be a clinical psychologist in New Zealand but now I’m a writer.

My writing is influenced by multiple different types of therapies, including techniques from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, and Self-Compassion.

I’m a science geek, I know lots about the research literature (which you’ll see from my blog).

My tips are designed to help you understand yourself better, reduce your problems, and help you find the tools and information that will help you have more self-acceptance and enable you to live a rich, meaningful and happy life.
