About Dr Ritz

Ritika Suk Birah (aka ‘Dr Ritz’) was born in Berkshire, raised in Singapore and spent university holidays in Hong Kong with her family. Experiencing different parts of the world and being a British Indian herself, she has a deep appreciation for different cultures.

A married mother of two boys under the age of 5, raising her family has taught her to embrace the beauty of chaos and the practice of patience.

Her hobbies include reformer pilates, jumping on a trampoline, cooking and (unsurprisingly!) travelling. While she particularly enjoys being by the ocean and moments of solitude, spending time with her boys is what she loves.

What is it?

A messaging service that is designed to promote mental health and wellbeing.

What problem does it solve?

At Reflect with Dr Ritz, our goal is to boost your mental wellbeing through forming healthy habits.


Research spanning decades consistently shows that doing the same simple thing over and over in a certain situation creates habits.


Habits like regular exercise, taking moments for mindfulness, journalling, staying connected with people, or enjoying hobbies can ​really make a difference. They not only make life more enjoyable but also help us feel better overall. When we make habits that ​prioritise taking care of ourselves and growing as individuals, we find ourselves better equipped to handle whatever life throws our ​way. It's all about finding those habits that really resonate with who we are and what we want in life. That's the secret to finding ​more happiness and fulfilment.

“The videos are perfect and exceeded expectations. We absolutely loved the content you created for Children’s Mental health week.”

“My well-being journey started with 121 sessions with Ritika in 2020, and I’m so grateful that we met. I was struggling to manage pressure at work and could feel the stress building. The sessions have covered so many different themes, in particular with a focus on understanding myself better, including why I react to certain situations and what triggers I have. I feel happier with where I am in life and proud of what I’ve achieved, especially when I look at changes to my self awareness, self compassion, motivation and fulfilment. I feel the positive effects on relationships with family, friends and colleagues, and excited where things will lead. Ritika’s approach shows genuine interest and makes me feel heard. It makes me feel comfortable talking about things I’ve never spoken to anyone about before, whilst never feeling there is any pressure to divulge anything. Thanks Ritika!!”
