Julia Bueno read law at Oxford University and after a brief career in the law, and another writing for an internet start-up, she trained as a psychotherapist and remains practising 15 years later.
Her first book is The Brink of Being: Talking about Miscarriage, published in May 2019 by Virago, and Penguin in the USA. The book explores the oft-misunderstood experience of miscarriage, through both her professional and personal experience, psychological research and historical insight. It was awarded Popular Medicine Book of the Year 2021 by the British Medical Association and runner-up for the overall Book of the Year.
Julia’s next book, Everyone’s a Critic, also for Virago Press, explores self-criticism and will be published in August 2022.
