About Jess

In my Zone

Focused at Work

I’m an independent Business Psychologist and Women’s Leadership Coach (CPsychol, AFBPsS). I’ve got ten years’ experience as a consultant, and I have managed a team of Occupational Psychologists as a Senior HR Manager.

I’m in my zone when running workshops that help women to own their space emotionally and physically.

Women in Leadership


I’m in my ‘zone of genius’ when I’m delivering my own Leadership Development Programmes and Workshops for women – not because men don’t need it, but because women benefit from learning how to feel more confident in their own space, in their own way, so they confidently lean-in at meetings and readily step up for promotion.

I regularly run workshops for women in my community. My “Empower Yourself – Even when you Feel a Bit Pants” receives rave reviews. They are interactive and evidence-based drawing on real life experience, psychology, mindfulness self-compassion, the performing arts.



There’s no such thing as a quick-fix. After just one session you’re feeling upbeat and confident. You believe, and you want to believe that your problem has been solved. However, patterns and habits are hard to break. I work with clients over 3 months to make sure they’ve made changes that will have a longer term impact.



Organisational Development


I’ve designed and delivered programmes in: Diversity & Inclusion, Wellbeing, Employee Engagement, Assessment Centres, Individual Assessment, Role-player Training, Psychometrics.


Corporate Clients

I’ve worked with financial retail (Barclays, HSBC), pharmaceutical (Schering Plough), professional services (AON), public health (NHS, PHW), private health (Fortius), defence (BAE Systems).


In My Spare Time

I regularly walk the Shropshire Hills, try to windsurf on the Spanish coast, and love to dive off the coast of Bali. I followed wild orangutans in Borneo (2001), did my first improvised comedy solo (2009), dabbled in Stand-Up comedy (2011), volunteered for Smart Works charity (since 2012), founded a make-your-own natural skincare brand @makeitmimi (2014).
