About Mandy

Hi, I'm Mandy

an accredited coach and coaching psychologist trained in the use of cognitive-behavioural, rational emotive behavioural and solution-focused psychological coaching approaches.

After completing my MSc in Health Psychology, I worked in strategic roles in public health in the National Health Service (NHS) and local government, where I led on the development, commissioning and evaluation of a range of health programmes. I also worked with bodies such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and Public Health England (PHE) to influence local and national policies and guidance.

In 2014, I decided to take the leap into consultancy and founded Murdoch Health Consulting Ltd. which supports organisations to deliver a range of projects aimed at improving population health and the quality and efficiency of health services.

And while I enjoyed that work (and still do), I was ready for a new challenge. I wanted to combine my interests and experience in psychology, behaviour change, health & wellbeing, management and consulting, so I undertook a number of coaching qualifications.

My coaching training and experience reinforced my views about the powerful interactions between our thoughts and beliefs, social environment, emotions, behaviours and physiology. I have personally benefited from using coaching psychology theories, models and techniques. The approaches have had a dramatic impact on my ability to manage my own stress levels, build resilience and achieve my goals. By changing the way that we think, I strongly believe that we can transform how we experience our lives and how we interact with others.

Now I work with senior leaders within the health sector to help them navigate the intense pressure they experience every day, the constantly changing work environment, and challenging workplace dynamics.

When their options appear to be ‘get out’ or ‘burn out’, I help them achieve a third, better way – to stay in the career they’ve worked so hard for, and develop themselves so they can feel energised, motivated and engaged again, and perform to the best of their ability as the effective and inspiring leader their team needs.

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

My Executive Coaching Programme Is For Healthcare Professionals In Leadership Roles Who Want To Feel Better And Perform Better. ​
