A Chartered Psychologist with over 20 years’ experience in the areas of management development, psychometric profiling and executive and career coaching, I am fascinated to hear people’s stories of how they got to where they are now and their work and life goals and dreams for the future. My aim is to help people get in touch with and to articulate what matters to them most, to focus upon what self-actualization means for them, and to envision how they can create a work and life situation which is in line with who they really are, harnessing their inner energy. In doing this I utilise my knowledge of personality and my experience of coaching teams and individuals.
During the early part of my career I worked as a Principal Psychologist and Product Manager with business consultancy and psychometric test distributor OPP Ltd, one of the world’s largest providers of business psychology solutions. I later worked as a Psychologist with global career experts Right Management (formerly Coutts Career Consultants) coaching individuals to help them formulate their future career path, taking account of their life goals and interests. I have worked as a consultant within a wide range of organisations, both within the UK and abroad and across all major business sectors, including banking, finance and professional services, retail, fmcg, government departments, leisure, utilities and recruitment/career management.
I am a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and hold the BPS Certificate of Competence in Occupational Testing Level A and Level B (Full). I am qualified to use a wide range of psychometric tools including the MBTI, OPQ, FIRO-B and CPI. Other areas of expertise include 360 degree assessment, emotional intelligence, assessment and development centres and personal effectiveness coaching.
