The Well Gardened Mind – an online talk by Sue Stuart-Smith
February 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree – £15
Join author Sue Stuart-Smith as she talks about her book The Well Gardened Mind: Rediscovering Nature in the Modern World, in the penultimate event in this series of BPCG at Home online talks: Women on Nature and Wildlife.
Combining contemporary neuroscience, psychoanalysis and compelling real-life stories, Sue’s inspirational and authoritative book investigates the remarkable effects of nature on our health and wellbeing and teaches us how vital gardening can be, both as an escape for the brain and to help our minds through movement as well as thought. Using case studies of people struggling with stress, depression, trauma and addiction, as well as her own grandfather’s return from World War I, she explores the many ways in which gardening can help transform people’s lives.
Psychiatrist and psychotherapist Sue Stuart-Smith took her degree in English literature at Cambridge before qualifying as a doctor. She worked in the National Health Service for many years, becoming the lead clinician in psychotherapy in Hertfordshire. She currently teaches at The Tavistock Clinic in London and is consultant to the DocHealth service. She is married to Tom Stuart-Smith, the celebrated garden designer, and, over 30 years together, they have created the wonderful Barn Garden in Hertfordshire.
