My name is Lee and I am a Chartered Occupational Psychologist and Executive Coach, working in Sevenoaks, Kent. I also provide online coaching via Skype and video link.
I have many years’ experience of providing professional services to individuals and organisations across different sectors and industries. I work in person and increasingly via technology.
People have always been central to my life and my work. My first career in nursing was rewarding and challenging in equal measure. It gave me an enduring interest in health and wellbeing and an understanding of its profound impact on every aspect of our lives.
I retrained as an Occupational Psychologist, completing a PhD and further qualifications in coaching, applied positive psychology and psychometrics.
I work mainly in the fields of leadership assessment, selection and development, helping to get the best people into roles and to enable them to master their challenges, realise their potential and effect sustainable change at work. My approach is friendly and informal, underpinned by sound business acumen and common sense.
I am passionate about personal growth and development and have recently completed an Advanced Diploma in Coaching which is transforming the way I work. Coaching is about taking people on a journey and providing them with a safe space to reflect. I use an integrative model, drawing on theory and knowledge from different sources including psychology, positive psychology, CBT, ACT, EI, Gestalt and psychodynamic. I draw on a wide range of techniques to support them to bring balance to their lives, develop resilience, enhance wellbeing and achieve fulfilment and success.
My specialties are: Coaching, Health and wellbeing, Resilience, Emotional Intelligence, Developing self-awareness, Executive assessment and development, Leadership Development, Strengths based approaches, 360 degree feedback and Psychometric testing.
I carry out a comprehensive initial assessment in which we start to identify and explore the issues that need to be addressed. My approach thereafter varies considerably between people but is tailored to their individual needs, personalities, preferences and the nature of the challenges.
I work to the BPS code of professional practice and ethical standards.
