Lois is a freelance copywriter based in the UK. She graduated from the University of Sussex with a BA in Media Practice, having specialized in screenwriting.

While her experience is varied, she has moved from freelance filmmaking for arts organizations, having made films documenting the benefits of engaging with art for the socially isolated and those living with dementia, to copywriting.

A combination of curiosity and a love for research has allowed her to write for a variety of clients on a huge range of topics, spanning hospitality, marketing, arts journalism, theatre criticism, and health and life sciences for News Medical.

Lois enjoys balancing her varied creative work with her interest in life sciences, veterinary care, and mental health. She regularly writes about mental health and has showcased her work at numerous London-based mental health festivals, aiming to challenge perceptions of both mental health conditions and those living with them.

She maintains a focus on anxiety disorders and depression and aims to explore other areas of mental health including dissociative disorders such as maladaptive daydreaming.

Lois is committed to providing accessible and accurate health and medical information online to better inform readers and believes open medical information is essential to improved wellbeing through enabling educated and informed decisions.
