As one of the BBC’s main national news broadcasters, I currently present the One, Six and Ten o’clock national news bulletins. During the past two decades I've reported from Iraq and Afghanistan - as well as presenting a wide range of prime time BBC One programmes. Motherhood has encouraged a return to my academic roots in child psychology and my work now combines my journalism with my passion to raise awareness around mental health issues relevant to both children and adults.  



I am a wife and a mother to two young children. My own experiences of motherhood have encouraged me to return to my academic roots in child developmental psychology and psychotherapy. I work with a number of children’s mental health charities and have started my training to become a children’s counsellor. My ambition now is to use my experience in journalism to raise awareness about emotional wellbeing and mental health issues relevant to both children and adults as well as looking after and having fun with my own gorgeous family.

I write regularly about developmental psychology; children, adolescent and adult mental health issues, conservation; things I've learned from life and the television programmes that I'm involved with. Follow this link for published articles and this one for press coverage.
