I am a psychologist who specialises in helping people find their best career direction.

A member of the British Psychological Society, I use psychology to help people work out objectively what they are like as people; what they are great at, what kinds of things they truly value what personality preferences they have - and then to define the career that would suit them best.

I don't believe in 'matching' people to jobs, but instead I help people work out for themselves what it is they want to do with their lives, then make a plan to do it.

Psychology is important because career change is often not just about what to do, but about the thinking processes behind working out what we want to do. It's also important because there is scientific evidence behind the techniques I use.

I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help people who feel really stuck in their lives / careers. This is a new, evidence based cognitive behavioural therapy which helps people cope with negative thoughts and emotions by enhancing psychological flexibility.

Management Consultant

I used to be a management consultant, working at PA Consulting Group between 1997 and 2003 and then setting up Serco Consulting, a management consultancy, between 2003 and 2007.

I led a number of high profile assignments including:
- Developing a more entrepreneurial, responsive, ‘bottom-up’ culture at HM Revenue & Customs.
- Developing the concept of ‘people-led change’ with the National Physical Laboratory.
- Managing a project which sought to improve the performance culture right across the UK’s justice system. This assignment involved multi-agency working including the Police (I worked with 35 separate Police forces), Courts, Crown Prosecution and Social Services and won the Management Consultancy Award for Best Strategy and Business Transformation project.

I also played a key role in the internal development of Serco Consulting as it grew from a staff of 6 to over 150 by the time he left. I was bid manager for many of the key projects that Serco Consulting won and was involved in winning over £50m worth of consultancy and outsourcing projects. My work also included designing and leading staff training courses and designing and running staff assessment centres.
