Amy’s background includes working as a Clinical Psychologist and Academic Tutor for Oxford University (in the UK). Her research and specialist area of psychotherapy was around how fear prevents perceived choices, and how the simplest of behaviour changes can create huge personal growth, better conversations and smarter decisions. She moved out of clinical work 15 years ago. With a short stint as a professional actress, Amy now helps brave organisations drive cultures where people grow and achieve.
She regularly publishes on growth, trust and connection in her ‘Silverlinings’ posts. Her book entitled Conversations Create Growth shows managers how to lead performance conversations that drive engagement and achievement. She is currently working on her new book The Safe Space: Where teams achieve which will be the essential guide on generous team collaboration for agile practice with elevated outcomes.
Amy has a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, Masters in Forensic Psychiatry, Masters in Performance and a BSc Hons in Psychology. She worked as a practicing Clinical Psychologist and an Academic Tutor and researcher at Oxford University in the UK. Amy also had a few years working as a professional actress so you can ask her questions about how to have a successful audition for Subway sandwiches later. Having worked in corporate for 15 years Amy absolutely knows how to transform behaviour using psychological knowledge and communication skills.
