Dr Radha

Meet Dr Radha – MA (Hons) MBBS (Hons) MRCGP DFRSH DRCOG

Innovator, Educator and Advocate

I believe that by sharing our own individual story, we are empowered with the tools we need to be well, learn more about ourselves and truly connect with each other across the world through our universal humanity. That is true wellbeing and true progress.

The advice that I give is rooted in my ability to listen and to empathise. I am constantly learning about life and what we can do for our wellbeing both individually and collectively and that’s why I love what I do – I am on this journey too.

Know Your Own Power

Dr Radha’s debut book, Know Your Own Power has been published in the UK, US and Canada, Australia and India, and is available as an audiobook narrated by Radha herself.

Featured on Action For Happiness, Damian Barr’s Literary Salon, Waitrose Health Magazine, BBC Radio 2, The i newspaper, Scala Radio, Happiful Magazine Podcast ‘I Am I Have’ & Channel 4’s Steph’s Packed Lunch.

A @mentalhealthfoundation report found that time spent in “high quality” nature spaces, those that are calm, clean, and boasts high levels of biodiversity, can help boost our wellbeing. 💚

@dr_radha agrees, and tells us that being outside and enjoying a #DailyDoseofDiscovery can help combat loneliness, depression, and anxiety.

Our relationship with our family members is probably one of the most fundamental to our lives and yet, can be one of the most complex to navigate too.


Conflict is a natural part of all relationships and to be expected from time to time in a family, but how can we navigate these tricky times, to ensure we are able to either resolve a situation, or to leave it with our mental health intact?

🎧 9-10pm @bbcsounds

I love to write about life, with all its ups and downs; how we can get through it and – hopefully – thrive. So you may be surprised to hear that this weekend, I am talking about the opposite – death – and the importance of recognising that all of our lives will end one day.

Death is part of life, so why are we so afraid of talking about it?

Instead of pushing it away, if we take steps in our own lives to reflect upon it we realise this could help us appreciate living more now & support our wellbeing

for some amazing tunes and brilliant guests 📻

Delighted to announce that I’m now a regular columnist for the brilliant BBC Science Focus magazine @bbcsciencefocus ✍️

I’ll be exploring the latest scientific health research – and how it could impact our day to day lives

And here’s my first one 👇

‘If you could take a pill that had all the fat-busting benefits of exercise without you needing to actually work out, would you do it? 💊

It's an exciting idea, says @DrRadhaModgil, but the mental and emotional impact of exercise should not be overlooked.’

https://www.sciencefocus.com/comment/science-is-closing-in-on-exercise-in-pill-form-that-might-not-be-such-a-good-thing/

Multitasking is an illusion – we are really just switching rapidly from one task to another

Although we feel more productive, science shows that actually we aren’t, and that our attempts to multitask may actually cause problems🤦🏻‍♀️

@theipaper #iweekend @theiweekend

Music is amazing & science has come a long way to help confirm what we already suspected. Why is music special and what does science us about how it can support our wellbeing?

Let’s value music more and let it work its magic🎼

Life admin can get in the way & tip the balance into less life & more work. Like work, it can drain your life energy-how can we stop the drain?

Work will never stop, life admin will never stop – but you shouldn’t allow it to stop you living
