What do you do at ART Health Solutions?
The primary focus of my role is to help lead the project management of ART’s services within client organisations, developing a deep understanding of the needs of each client to ensure impact and value are delivered. This involves implementing and communicating a strategy for each project based on the specific needs identified by the client, communicating with stakeholders across all levels and working closely with the ART team to collate several data sources to effectively communicate actionable recommendations to the client.
What’s your background?
I have long had an interest in understanding psychology and mental health, which drew me into studying psychology at degree and masters level. I then took these therapeutic skills into both clinical and occupational settings, treating and working with patients in various psychiatric hospitals, then on working with UK Police forces helping to facilitate a programme that sought to improve the culture, resilience and wellbeing of their senior leadership teams. My work with the Police was research-focused and underpinned by a strong evidence-based approach, using qualitative and quantitative methodology to evaluate its effectiveness.
My varied experience across numerous psychological fields allows me to understand people in the workplace, how they work, have an awareness of their wellbeing needs and cater solutions to their needs.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
When I’m not working, you’ll likely find me engaged in something active; at the gym or playing tennis. I’ve recently started running, ticking off my first half marathon this year and hoping to work towards a full marathon next year. If I’m not doing that, I’ll be planning my next city break abroad!
