Burnout and depression lead Lorna Evans to psychotherapy.
I started training as a therapist while working as a producer in the video game and television industry. Music and clubbing were a big part of my life and, although I had amazing times, the impact of this pursuit of hedonism, coupled with working in the entertainment industry, was a cocktail that led to depression, and emotional and physical depletion.
I realised that I had to change my lifestyle and look after my health. Yoga played a huge part in helping me heal and I trained to become a yoga teacher. I always wanted to understand the science behind why yoga worked, and this has now become central to my work as a psychotherapist. I am passionate about explaining the science of how breath and movement can be used as healing tools for anxiety, trauma and depression.
