Hi, My Name’s Nick Wignall.
I’m a clinical psychologist and author interested in applying the lessons of psychology and behavioral science to everyday personal development goals and mental health.
In a culture saturated with self-help and wellness advice, I try to bridge the gap between clinical science and everyday struggles. Covering topics from mindfulness and motivation to anxiety and insomnia, the central question in all of my work is: How can a better understanding of our own psychology help us achieve our goals?
