Kimberley Wilson



Kimberley Wilson is a Governor of the Tavistock & Portman NHS Mental Health Trust and the former chair of the British Psychological Society Training Committee in Counselling and Psychology. She led the therapy service at HMP & YOI Holloway, 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; integrating evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle factors with psychological therapy. Her degree in nutrition informs her approach of looking at the roles food and lifestyle play in our mental health, including disordered eating, the gut-brain axis and our emotional relationship with food.

Passionate about the power of psychology to transform lives, Kimberley is committed to demystifying the theories and putting the information into the hands of the people who need it through social media, podcasts, television appearances, live events and regular appearances on expert panels.

Kimberley hosts the podcast Made of Stronger Stuff alongside Dr Xand van Tulleken on BBC Radio 4. Its unique approach takes the pair on a journey around the human body exploring a different body part in-depth in each episode, asking what it can tell us about our innate capacity for change.

Kimberley is a regular contributor to Lorraine on ITV and throughout 2020 was the featured mental health expert on several Channel 4 documentaries about the impact of Coronavirus.
