Dr Priyanka Naidu

Through her research, teaching, and resource development, she strives to raise awareness about tools and strategies that improve mental health and overall wellbeing. She believes everyone deserves to lead a fulfilling and authentic life, and wants to support others to build the knowledge and tools to support their journey.

Driven by her own experiences with social anxiety, particularly when she was young, she is driven to provide the support she wished she had at an earlier age. Learning how healthy habits support the mind, managing overwhelming emotions, and challenging unhelpful thoughts has supported her mental health, confidence and resilience.
