DR CHARLOTTE RUSSELL – CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST AND FOUNDER
I’m Dr Charlotte Russell, a Clinical Psychologist and the founder and editor of the Travel Psychologist blog.
In my day job as a Psychologist, I run my own private practice. I specialise in trauma and am trained in a trauma therapy called EMDR. I also work with clients experiencing other common mental health problems including anxiety, low mood and difficulties with self-esteem.
Outside of work I have always loved travel. Whilst I have travelled far and wide, Greece is a particular favourite of mine, and I have been visiting for more than 20 years. For me, travel has always been an important way to cope with and step back from the day job.
I created the Travel Psychologist blog to provide credible and trustworthy information about travel and well-being, written by qualified professionals. As psychologists we go through many years of training, including completing a doctorate. I hope this puts us in a good position to provide information that is helpful to you, as well as interesting and thought provoking.
Since starting the blog and becoming a ‘travelling psychologist’ I have learned a huge amount about the psychological benefits of travel and how to use travel to live well and thrive. I love sharing this information with you, so welcome to our website.
