This site lists out the major services I provide but it’s not an exhaustive list and if you can’t find what you are looking for, do still get in touch. It’s very likely that I can help or put you in touch with someone else who can. I am able to meet the requirements of larger projects by working with other high calibre, experienced independent practitioners, people I’ve worked with in the past and I know will do an excellent job.
Many years ago I was drawn to study Occupational Psychology because I had a passion for helping make people’s lives at work better, and this is still what drives me today. I believe that organisations and people flourish – and are most successful – when there are positive symbiotic relationships between individuals, and between organisations and individuals. My purpose is to help people and organisations create and strengthen those positive relationships to enable them to succeed.
My focus as a coach and consultant is to help people and organisations gain increased understanding and insight into their challenges and opportunities, to strengthen decision making and to take actions which have a positive lasting impact for individuals, organisations, and customers.
I have a curious and analytical mind and this frames how I work with my clients – by helping them clearly define their challenges and desired outcomes, before discussing options and designing interventions that will address their needs and add value. Despite working as a management consultant for over 15 years, I use plain English when I communicate, listen closely, and am empathetic, honest and open in my thinking. My experience and academic background as an Occupational Psychologist gives me a broad and deep understanding of the dynamics of human behaviour and how individual and work factors interact to drive behaviour and performance.
I enjoy working with people, and have been lucky to have worked with a wide range of individuals and organisations during my career: from founders of start-ups, to middle and senior managers within global blue chips and large public sector organisations such as the NHS and Metropolitan Police Service.
Outside of work I really enjoy spending time out and about with my husband and son, riding my bike on sunny days in the Kent lanes, tending my allotment and going to the theatre. I also enjoy capturing detail, beauty and things others miss in my photography.
