Evidence based medical and public health leadership and career coaching
I use a range of evidence based behavioural science and applied psychological interventions to improve outcomes in my work as an Executive Coach, Mentor and Career Counsellor, ensuring highly effective coaching programmes for medical and public health leadership, career counselling and career coaching, and staff development and team coaching.
I am trained to an advanced level in ‘3rd wave Cognitive Behaviour Therapies’ applied to the leadership and career coaching context, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT); these methods all focus on present moment awareness, compassion for self and others, values-based living and willingness to take action even in the face of difficulty. They address internal as well as external barriers to effecting change, ensuring that the impact of my coaching programmes are long-lasting.
