Media & ContactBusiness Psychologist & Women's Leadership Coach
As an independent business psychologist consultant and specialist media psychologist, I am regularly invited to give my expert opinion on themes relating to entrepreneurship, leadership, women in business, mental wellbeing, and productivity.
My media work has involved research, designing survey questions, writing personality quizzes, and designing give away products such as downloadable worksheets.
LEADERSHIP & WELLBEING EXPERT
As well as giving podcast and YouTube interviews, I’m regularly interviewed on national and regional radio as an expert psychologist, including BBC Radio 5 Live. Some of these interviews have been turned into blogs on BBC Radio 5 Live and articles, such as this one on ITV.com.
Having studied stand-up comedy and performed improv to live audiences I’m not camera shy. And it meant that I was fully prepared when, 20 seconds before going live on air on BBC World News, the producer told me the focus of the interview had changed from the ‘psychological impact of lockdown’ to ‘maintaining friendships during lockdown’.
On Stage (Festivals & Conferences)
I regularly talk on a wide range of topics such as imposter syndrome, happiness, confidence, sleep, perfectionism, stress, bouncing back from setbacks and making life changes.
My relaxed style suits large public audiences, and I’ve had the pleasure to have been (pre-Covid) a keynote speaker at annual wellbeing events such as Bloom, Olympia London, outdoor festivals, such as Orbit Fitness Fest, and International Women’s Day speaker for corporate clients including CoOp, Women Into Leadership, The Ned, Wylie, and Total UK.
When a BBC World News producer called to invite me to give my expert opinion on the psychological impact of working from home, and then tells me they’ve changed the topic literally 20 seconds before going live on air…well…watch for yourself!
