Dr. Julie Smith has over ten years’ experience as a clinical psychologist and was the first professional to use TikTok to give insights on therapy. After running her own private practice, Julie launched her TikTok channel with the mission of making top-quality mental health education accessible to all.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, her audience grew astronomically to 3 million followers as users related to the bite-size self-help videos she was sharing and put her advice into practice.
Those videos have clocked up around half a billion views across platforms. Julie has appeared in two BBC films. She has also appeared on CBBC, Good Morning Britain, BBC Breakfast, and CNN International and is the BBC Radio 1 Life Hacks psychologist.
