Coaching psychology for health sector leaders

Become the resilient, inspiring leader you want to be, and enjoy your working life more (because when you feel better, you’ll do better).

Hi, I'm Mandy

I work with health sector leaders and their teams to help them to develop the resilience and mindset needed to reach their potential, inspire their team, AND enjoy their work more.

What is Coaching Psychology?

Coaching psychology is my area of expertise. If this is the first time you’ve heard of ‘coaching psychology’, perhaps you’re wondering what I’m talking about? Here’s a definition: 

 Coaching psychology is a field of applied psychology that applies psychological theories and concepts to the practice of coaching. Its aim is to increase performance, achievement and wellbeing in individuals, teams and organisations by utilising evidence-based methods grounded in scientific research. 

Why I do what I do.

I am passionate about sharing my coaching psychology skills and expertise, equipping my clients with psychological resources that enable them to flourish, improve their health and wellbeing, and live more contented and fulfilling lives.  

 By changing the way that we think, we can transform how we experience our lives and how we interact with others.  As well as the positive transformations I have seen in my clients’ lives, coaching psychology has been of enormous personal benefit to me. The approaches have had a dramatic impact on my ability to manage my own stress levels, build resilience and achieve my goals. The rewards of working with individuals to make positive shifts in their mindset, are immense. When I see my clients move from feeling overwhelmed to navigating the intense pressures that they are faced with every day in a happier and healthier way it makes it all worthwhile.  

 I believe that if we can improve the psychological wellbeing of individuals, prevent burnout and more serious mental health conditions from developing, this will not only have a positive impact on the individual, but also the people around them – their family, friends, colleagues, community and wider society. 

 Working within the NHS and experiencing first-hand the challenges faced by staff daily, I realised that I can personally have a greater impact at an individual level by combining my passion for the field of psychology with my experience in the sector. 

Mandy is an absolute delight. As somebody who was extremely hesitant about coaching, within 1 to 2 sessions I was soon looking forward to our next chat and it became the highlight of my week. I cannot overstate enough the difference that Mandy has made to my way of thinking – this has not only made me a better leader, but also positively affected my life hugely both in and out of work. My productivity and work relationships have all improved and this experience is one I would recommend to any leader and cannot think of a better person more suited to coaching than Mandy.

I found the coaching to be highly productive, providing the tools required for my ongoing development. The coaching style ensured my engagement by providing a comfortable and supportive environment to examine my behaviours and understand how they can improve for my personal benefit and that of my colleagues.

My Expert Guide to having those Difficult Conversations

As a health sector leader, do you sometimes find yourself shying away from work conversations that you perceive to be 'difficult'?

Is there a conversation you need to have with a colleague which always seems to fall to the bottom of your to-do list?

If you identify with any of these feelings, you may want to try out the exercises in this guide for tackling difficult workplace conversations.

With over 15 years of direct experience working across the health sector – as an employee, a consultant, and a provider of services – I am well placed to understand and empathise with the unique challenges of working in this environment, whilst having the ability to see things from different perspectives.

I’ve taken my diverse background in psychology, behaviour change, health & wellbeing, management, and consulting and combined it with evidence-based methods grounded in scientific research to create my Inspiring Leader Programme – Executive Coaching for the Health Sector.
