The Girls' Guide to Growing Up Great
The Girls' Guide to Growing Up Great was published by Green Tree
(Bloomsbury) in April 2018 and was updated in a new format in March 2020. It features contributions from psychotherapist, Laura Chaisty, and GP Dr Maddy Podichetty and is illustrated by Flo Perry.
It's a warm and empowering guide to puberty for girls and has been widely featured in the media, including The Guardian, The iPaper and also on Woman's Hour.
I have spoken on this and other related topics on radio programmes including Woman's Hour, BBC Radio 2 (Claudia Winkelman), Talk Radio (Badass Women's Hour), BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Oxford, BBC Berkshire and Siren FM and also for the BBC News Channel (see link below). I've also appeared on the BBC News channel a few times discussing adolescence-related issues. Here (right) discussing social media with Dr Amy Orben (Cambs).
