Need an expert opinion on the psychology of careers?

We can provide expert advice and opinion for features, news stories and Q&A sessions.

 

Topics we can cover include: career disengagement and stuckness, career change, meaning and fulfilment at work, ways to thrive in the workplace in the 21st century and the psychology of career transformation.

We also have an extensive case study list of clients who have made successful career changes or improved their performance at work through psychology.

We are active in research and are able to show how a single psychological factor – psychological flexibility – can help people change careers, improve careers and perform better at work.

See for example our articles for Guardian Careers (Five Steps to Beating Career Paralysis) and Excellence Reporter (What is the Meaning of Life?).

If this sounds helpful and you would like to talk to one of our team, please email info@thecareerpsychologist.com.

    It’s at this point where art takes over.  There were several notable examples of this in my career change: Derek Walcott, Al Pacino, Ernest Hemingway, reading the obituaries or even the Honda ad, which taught me that even bald men can sometimes be courageous.
