Emma is a chartered Occupational Psychologist specialising in enhancing organisational performance via improved employee well-being, morale, productivity and engagement. She combines her years of organisational experience with evidence-based, robust frameworks, models and techniques to facilitate organisational and behavioural change. She is also an expert on work-related stress, and was invited by the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to give feedback on their management standards. Emma is also a visiting lecturer at City University, Goldsmith’s College and Kings College London. In addition, she is a member of the International Stress Management Association and has worked with many private and public sector organisations to amass an international perspective of organisational change. Emma is currently the co-director of a research project funded by the HSE and CIPD, with the aim of developing a competency framework for preventing and reducing stress at work. She has also made a number of radio and TV appearances providing expertise on issues relating to health at work. She was recently named the joint Practitioner of the Year by the British Psychological Society.
