I am both a clinical psychologist and organisation strategist. I work with individuals and organisations, including in the cross-over area between personal and professional wellbeing and career issues. I have experience in many different high-pressure organisations in many sectors: health, public, nonprofit, entrepreneurial and startups. I work face to face and online with people from all walks of life. Recent client feedback on my work: 'I was quite astounded with how spot on you were with being able to articulate what was going on for me'. I use a practical approach based on using the best current evidence about what works.
My practical approach is also reflected in client feedback: 'I come out from a session with hands-on tools to take away that I have already been helped to practice and I can clearly see how they can be applied to my situation'. Working with clients, first, I help them deal with what they are facing in the immediate moment.
Second, I assist them in understanding why they have ended up dealing with life the way that they have. Third, I help them to use tools to change in the long term what needs to be changed to help them be happier. Fourth, I help them develop meaning out of the way they are accepting and dealing with their life challenges.
