About NAKED:

NAKED: Ten Truths To Change Your Life is my third book. This book follows a similar, no-frills structure to my previous two books as I explores the power of vulnerability, how it can become our greatest strength, the behaviour and thought patterns that might not be serving us all that well and how we can remedy them to create the life we want. Complete with expert input and my signature wit and personal experience, NAKED became another instant bestseller as soon as it hit shelves (in a pandemic, which wasn’t great).


Owning It was my first book, chronicling my experiences with anxiety and offering my ‘Assess and Address Approach’. Following its release in May 2017, it remained at the number one spot for 16 solid weeks. Owning It the podcast is based on this book. Owning It was nominated for a Popular Non-Fiction Book of the Year Award in the 2017 Book of the Year Awards. I didn’t win that one (sob) but I did win the Gamechanger award at the 2017 U Magazine Awards which glistens on her mantlepiece. I was also nominated as a ‘Thought Provoker’ for the 2018 Xpose Benefit Awards.

The Confidence Kit – my second book  was also a bestseller and tackles our struggles with the fear of failure, the confidence gap between men and women and so much more, offering a toolkit to help give your confidence a kick up the proverbial.


All books are published in France, Germany, Russia and rather excitingly in the US and Canada. Owning It has been reimagined as Own It for the US release and received two incredible blurbs from two New York Times Number One Bestselling Authors – Jenny Lawson and Sarah Knight. The Confidence Kit has been retitled ‘You Got This’ for its US release.

I also host Owning It The Anxiety Podcast which went straight to number one on the iTunes charts in Ireland upon its release. You can listen to it on iTunes, Spotify and other podcast platforms. Read the 5 star reviews for this podcast here. This January (2022) alone, it enjoyed over a quarter of a million downloads. To date, the podcast has received over 6.5 million downloads. It has also once made it to the number 1 health podcast across the whole of the UK. I am now in season 11. In 2023 I launched Owning It: Real Time which goes one step further than the podcast.
