ClinPsyD MPhil MA DipCAT BSc(Hons)
Amy’s work as a Clinical Psychologist and Academic Tutor for Oxford University (in the UK) focused on fear preventing perceived choices. She has always been obsessed with people growth and has a passion for creating ripples of positive human behaviour. Having moved out of clinical work 15 years ago, Amy now spends her time teaching people how to help others change. And with a short stint as a professional actress, Amy knows how to rock the stage!
Amy regularly publishes on growth, trust and connection. Her book "Conversations Create Growth" is a practical book for managers to create performance and engagement growth in their direct reports. Her book "The Safe Space: Where growth happens" is due out in 2018 and will be the essential guide on how to create and use psychological safety in teams so they can do their best work.
Amy lives in Melbourne, Australia. Her professional qualifications include a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, Masters in Forensic Psychiatry, Masters in Performance, Diploma in Cognitive Analytic Therapy and a BSc Hons in Psychology.
The Safe Space: Where growth happens
Capitalising on what people can do is essential to our business growth. Having psychologically safe interactions is the number one driver of effective team working, according to a 2-year study at Google Analytics (over and above skill set). Any fear that inhibits our behaviour is an inhibitor of innovation, engagement, energy levels, speed of work and growth mindset.
This keynote inspires and fascinates the audience by bringing humour and science to their understanding of the way people work best. Participants will be called on to examine both their own behavioural contributions and responses in regards to fear, growth and connection. They will be shown how to amplify the performance of others. Our future relevance relies on our creation of The Safe Space.
Learn the key skills that will ripple wide, making work easier and growth possible.
WHAT OTHERS SAY ...
Dr. Amy's is indeed an inspiring presenter - intelligent, kind, entertaining and humble. Her message is both disarming and profound, entirely practical and applicable. I immediately acted upon Amy's advice (as is her intent) and myself and my team have since been rewarded in spades. Excuse the somewhat effusive recommendation, but I cannot speak highly enough of Amy and her message.
David Preach, Facilitator and Presener for Mental Health
Without any hesitation, I highly recommend Amy for any presentation that has a goal to more deeply embed the science of psychology in corporate institutions.
