As a Business Psychologist, my aim is to improve the workplace performance and effectiveness of individual and organisations across public, private and charity sectors. I do this by creating bespoke psychology based interventions, developed from current research, which are highly motivational as well as fun. I use the Explor Model to help develop the interventions to meet my client’s requirements.
An area which I am extremely passionate about is psychometric assessment. I feel that these are great tools to enhance personal development, team development, leadership and recruitment. I am accredited to deliver Lumina Spark ,which is a professional development tool supporting individuals, teams and organisations to improve effectiveness and to develop self-awareness. I am also accredited to deliver Lumina Select which is a selection tool producing a personalised report demonstrating a candidates characteristics, work style and levels of competencies which can be matched to job roles.
I am also qualified to deliver User Test Ability and User Test Personality (Formerly level A and B). I regularly use these tools to inform coaching with clients and to design and deliver bespoke training workshops.
I am currently Careers Liaison for the Division of Occupational Psychology Scotland and a member of the British Psychological Society. This involves meeting students in schools and universities to promote occupational psychology as a career. I have also recently become involved in a school mentoring programme. I have been involved in delivering employability workshops at a local secondary school a project supported by the YMCA and mental health awareness workshops, also in a school setting.
