Beth E. Lee, MBA, MSc

After 20 years of working with marketing content in a plethora of industries, I hit what I thought was the pinnacle of my career in 2007. I had everything I wanted: I was an executive, traveling around the world, working with amazing people and living an expat life in Australia with a husband I loved – but I wanted more… I wanted a baby.

In 2009 that baby arrived but, unfortunately, I wasn’t mentally prepared and found myself suffering from post-natal depression. It took a year of therapy, which as far as I’m concerned, saved my life. In 2011 we left Australia to continue our expat life, living in 4 more countries, before settling down. I couldn’t help but wonder at each turn, why? Why did I fall into a depression? How did therapy work? Why did it work for me? And why didn’t it come back?

With two beautiful children, we settled down in the UK in 2014, where I could finally answer those all-important questions. And finally, in 2019, ten years after my battle began, I gained an MSc in Psychology & Neuroscience in Mental Health. I now have a fundamental scientific foundation of psychology and mental health as a whole. I have gained that all-important understanding of depression answering the question, why me. But most importantly I have learned the inner mechanisms of the brain and new aspects of mental health sparking an insatiable curiosity. I am now inspired to tell my story, to continue learning by conducting research and, most importantly, to help others with their thinking to live a satisfying and full life.
