Following her hugely successful career with BBC television as an interviewer and comedian, Ruby Wax has now turned her attention to the study of psychotherapy and neuroscience graduating from Oxford University in 2013 with a Master‘s degree in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy.
She is the author of the best-selling book Sane New World. Described as a guide to saner living, Ruby explains how our minds can jeopardize our sanity, and that to break the cycle, we need to understand how our brains work, rewire our thinking and find calm in a frenetic world. Her show of the same name, combines neuroscience, mindfulness and comedy, helping audiences to become the masters, not the slaves of their minds. Sane New World has toured both internationally and in London‘s West End.
Ruby also founded Black Dog Tribe, a social networking site providing information and social support for people suffering with mental health issues. She presented her TedTalk at TedGlobal 2012 What‘s So Funny about Mental Illness?
Ruby‘s most recent bestselling book is ˜A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled‘ and her new show of the same has gone on tour.
She was recently awarded an OBE for services to mental health.
