Job Title

Business Psychologist, Executive Coach and Psychotherapist



People are a source of continual fascination to me – their motives, their drive, how they think and how they behave. This has been true for as long as I can remember! Whether we are alone, in a family or team, as a part of a large organisation or as citizens of a state, I wonder what makes us all tick; what lies beneath who we appear to be on the surface and what governs the way we act. Over many years, working in HR, as a management consultant, a business psychologist, coach and registered psychotherapist, I have built up a picture of what seems to matter time and time again: what makes those who are exceptional truly different; how corporate culture excites and motivates us and how it sometimes turns us off and how extraordinary leaders do their jobs. Sometimes it feels to me like I am on a lifelong quest to understand the complexities of human nature. Maybe that in itself is a good thing? My career has taken me all over the world and I have been lucky enough to have worked with hundreds of senior managers as an assessor, coach and team facilitator. I’m trusted by leading organisations to offer insight, advice and support and my clients tell me this is always delivered in a warm, inclusive and engaging way. You can read more of my thoughts in Coaching at Work, HR Magazine, HR Review, Personnel Today, and Edge magazine.
