The Mind Medic

by Sarah Vohra


Dr. Sarah Vohra is a Consultant Psychiatrist with more than ten years' experience in the UK's National Health Service. She also writes a monthly column for Women's Health magazine as a resident psychiatrist. Dr. Vohra set up her popular online platform, The Mind Medic, to help debunk the misconceptions and myths surrounding mental health.

This book encourages us to take readings from our five senses, and adjust our 'emotional temperature' accordingly. Dr. Vohra explains why we sometimes feel anxious, down, or unfulfilled, and provides simple tips and techniques to empower people to take more control of their own mental wellbeing.

The book draws on real-life case studies from Dr. Vohra's practice to help the reader recognise similar patterns in themselves. The explanations are immediately relatable, and the suggested self-help plans are proven to work – as long as we commit to them!
