Gemma Newman,
The Plant Power Doctor

 A doctor for over 17 years, Gemma Newman has worked in many specialities as a doctor including elderly care, endocrinology, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, psychiatry, general surgery, urology, vascular surgery, rehabilitation medicine and General Practice.


Dr Newman's specialist interests are in holistic health and plant-based nutrition as well as lifestyle medicine. In her practice she has come to understand that body, mind and soul are not separate, and that it is only in addressing the root causes of stress and disconnection that we can truly heal, from the inside out.

Dr Soph ,
Clinical Psychologist

Dr Soph is a clinical psychologist with a personal mission to get psychology out of the therapy room and into people’s lives in a way that makes sense to them and helps make self-understanding and the tools for healing accessible. She has an Undergraduate degree in Psychology, a Masters in Neuroscience and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and has worked on the frontline at London’s Homerton Hospital.

Realising the system wasn’t working for so many people, she left behind her traditional role as a clinical psychologist in the NHS and has helped thousands manage their emotional wellbeing by sharing her psychological knowledge on Instagram, her blog and through her online private practice. She is also an expert for the mindfulness app, ‘Happy Not Perfect’ and has been featured in global outlets including Vice Magazine, Girlboss, Psych Central, Well + Good and Elite Daily.
