Emma is the founder of All About Thriving and a Chartered Psychologist with extensive experience in leadership and organisations.
She was the first recipient from the UK of a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and her doctorate research focused on thriving at work amongst leaders across the public and private sector. The first chapter of her career gave her first-hand leadership and organisational experience and she combines this with a flexible, pragmatic approach to the most useful psychological insights to help others thrive and perform.
She now works across the public, educational and private sectors bringing strengths-based coaching, training and development in the areas of authenticity, resilience and agility to support senior leaders and teams.
She works collaboratively and draws on a broad array of skills, models and concepts – she is not wedded to one approach to thriving, wellbeing or leadership. Her work and research is informed by a focus on bringing out the best in people which may appear to be ‘soft’, but leads to powerful, challenging conversations. In other words, a focus on the positive and the constructive can also be tough and create meaningful development and change.
