Jess Baker Psychologist

Women's Leadership Coach


The thing I’m most passionate about is helping women to believe that they are already good enough, helping them feel more confident, and encouraging them to be more self-compassionate. I work alongside D&I teams, run workshops in my community, and I’m on the Board of Trustees of a charity providing leadership programmes for 8-18 year old girls.

Business Psychologist


This is how happy I look when I’m helping clients to improve their business or their employee’s lives in some way. I’m a Chartered Psychologist (AFBPsS) with over ten years’ consulting experience, working in leadership development, culture change, assessment, talent management, team-building and employee engagement.

Speaker & Workshops


Whether it's a 45 minute speaking slot at a national wellbeing event in London Olympia, running a 4-day development programme or 2 day retreat, I'm in my zone when I'm sharing insights and facilitating discussions about how to be a more confident version of yourself. I regularly share my opinion in articles and ?magazines (e.g. Boots Health & Beauty).
