I thrive on connections and collaborations with a wide variety of people. Here are some of the people I work with, talk to and admire. They help me thrive through conversation, sharing ideas and collaborating on projects. 

Dr Paul Flaxman

Paul is a reader in organisational psychology at City, University of London. Over the last few years, I have worked alongside Paul in the redesign of an ACT intervention for psychological wellbeing in the workplace. We've also travelled all over the UK delivering train the trainer interventions for psychological wellbeing at work. We also ventured further afield to Montreal in July 2018 to present some of our research evidence.


Dr Annie Gascoyne

Annie is an organisational psychologist, trainer, facilitator, consultant and coach who uses behavioural science to equip people and organisations with skills to achieve their aims, with a greater sense of wellbeing, meaning and purpose.

Annie has over 20 years of experience across a wide range of organisations from multinational corporations through to entrepreneurial start-ups, and from financial services to charities. She has worked as an external consultant and coach, and as an internal manager of people, projects, operations and change.

Annie’s transition to organisational psychology was driven by her desire to help organisations and their people to work together more successfully and healthily. Her doctoral thesis, which researched organisational and psychological flexibility, provides her practice with a leading-edge, evidence-based perspective for improving our world of work.

We co-designed and delivered the a Flexibility @ Work Programme in 2020 and have more projects and many ideas in the pipeline.

Jaimie Tapper 

Jaimie was my classmate on the MSc in organisational psychology at City Uni. We share a mutual enthusiasm and interest in the application of ACT in the workplace. I work alongside Jaimie in sharing contextual behavioural science with ballet companies around the UK in partnership with Dancers Career Development. 

Jonny Line

Jonny is a recent graduate of the MSc at City, University of London. We got chatting after one of my lectures and found a common interest in the creativity and impact of truly flexible facilitation which we've kept alive through many conversations. Jonny has been described by another colleague as having an "unusual theoretical mind" - which certainly keeps me on my toes. At the time of writing - he has featured on two very popular episodes of the People Soup Podcast. He has now embarked on a professional doctorate in organisational psychology at Birkbeck - he's particularly interested in compassion in the workplace.  

Maddy Scott

Maddy and I have co-designed several interventions. The most memorable was a one day ACT intervention which was extremely well received. Maddy is now working her magic as a Senior Talent Development Partner at Groupon. 

Maddy is the co-host of a popular podcast (it's one of my favourites) called Freaking the F Out - you can find it on all the usual platforms. In each episode Maddy and co-host Kelsey explore the working of their own minds in different life areas - they also have some top guests. They do great work in normalising the anxious mind and the experience of the human condition in a really accessible (and often entertaining) way. Maddy is also a pioneer of evidence based practice in organisations and is one of the co-founders of the Evidence Based HR Forum.
