I'm a work & org psychologist, writer and researcher. From an academic base in psychology and 20+ years in business, I aim to assist workers, the self-employed, executives and organisations to find clarity and direction in daily work.
My Professional Work
I'm a work and organisational psychologist specialising in the behaviour and performance of people and organisations at work. I work with individuals and teams on leadership, culture, and performance with the ultimate aim of helping people find clarity and direction in their daily work. My work is vocational, and I believe that everyone has the right to engage in meaningful and fulfilling work. If you are stressed and at odds with your work, or you are ambitious and goal-oriented, I may be able to assist you. Book a private session with me.
I hold a first-class honours degree in psychology from DBS Dublin and an MSc. Work & Organisational Psychology from DCU Business School. I am a peer-reviewed author, graduate member of the Psychological Society of Ireland and the Association for Coaching. Outside official programs and CPD, I work with clients and research and write on expertise, creativity, behaviour and performance.
My background is in SME business and endurance sport, so I work best with business owners, executives, athletes, and the self-employed. My theoretical perspective is person-centred and includes psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural, and positive psychological approaches helping you develop and refine the psychological skills necessary to function and deliver your best under pressure.
My business career began at 25 and spans 20+ years in the construction and service industries working with national and international clients. In sport, I've been an enthusiastic and committed amateur in the GAA since I was a child. After I became too slow, I took up extreme endurance running completing over 80 marathons and ultra events. Today I run and attend CrossFit for health & fitness.
I work with individuals and teams in career and business, exploring the psychological processes influencing the behaviour and performance of both the individual and the collective. Whether you are an experienced business owner, corporate executive, manager, or career professional, I can help you develop the mental skills to succeed and find clarity & direction in your career and work.
