Ruby Wax OBE

Ruby Wax OBE is known for her extensive comedy and television interview career. Ruby has studied psychotherapy and gained her Master’s Degree in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy from Oxford University. These days she promotes understanding of the brain and campaigns for greater mental health awareness and destigmatization. As an adult learner Ruby is a wonderful role model demonstrating the positive impact adult education can have in not only enhancing mental wellbeing but also supporting a change in direction later in life.  We were delighted to welcome Ruby to City Lit in 2018 to receive her City Lit Lifetime Fellowship Award.
