Training as a nurse in Belfast in the very early 1990’s and bringing that experience to London working in the speciality of neurosurgery sparked an interest and fascination in how our brains work and influence our being, which still continues and informs her coaching practice today.
With a desire to focus on preventative health and wellbeing Mandy took on additional training to be a specialist nurse in Occupational Health. 22 years working in the speciality, Mandy worked with organisations and individuals in a variety of industries, from NHS and public sectors, charities, manufacturing and corporate sectors on matters such as health risk management, sickness absence policy, wellbeing initiatives, preventative screening and stress management training.
Mandy’s contribution in Occupational Health continued in management roles, leading large teams to deliver quality OH services to NHS employees and on external commercial contracts. This experience has enabled Mandy to have a unique perspective of job roles and the world of work in how it influences our lives and our wellbeing, supporting all levels of the organisation and stages of transition in an individual’s career.
