“We are all frazzled, all of us...”

 Five hundred years ago no one died of stress: we invented this concept and now we let it rule us.

Witty, smart and relatable, Ruby Wax shows us all how to de-frazzle for good by making simple changes that give us time to breathe, reflect and live in the moment.

Let Ruby be your guide to a healthier, happier you. You've nothing to lose but your stress…

Ruby is currently on tour with A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled, hosted by Chorleywood Bookshop, The School of Life, Booka Bookshop, Silverwood Books, Waterstones and Topping Booksellers.

Following on from the sell-out success of her one woman shows Sane New World and Frazzled, Ruby is also returning once more to the stage with her nationwide tour Frazzled. Her biggest tour to date, Ruby Wax will be at theatres from The Isle of Wight to Dundee, performing from January until June 2017.



 Ruby has campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness about mental health issues, including speaking at Downing Street to raise money for neuroscience research. In 2013, she obtained a Master’s Degree in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University to increase her understanding of the brain and used this knowledge as the basis for her books Sane New World: Taming the Mind and A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled both of which became Sunday Times number one bestsellers on publication. She was awarded an OBE for her services to mental health in the Honorary British Awards to Foreign Nationals in 2015.

She has become a leading speaker on mental issues including appearances at The Home Office, MI5, Apple, Goldman Sachs, KPMG, Merril Lynch, Bank of America, Downing Street, the House of Lords, Google, The Cabinet-Director Generals and TEDGlobal 2012, plus various UK National Health Trusts and charities.
