Suzy Dale BSc(Hons) MSc CPsychol AFBPsS
I’m a Chartered Occupational Psychologist (sometimes referred to as a ‘Business Psychologist’ or ‘Work Psychologist’) and have devoted my career to helping others with theirs.
Since 2011 I’ve worked as a freelancer with the public, private and voluntary sectors.
Recent work includes:
- career coaching over 250 people through redundancy and onto fulfilling next steps,
- leading on employee engagement and well-being strategies for a major charity. This included developing and implementing pulse, joiners, leavers and full staff surveys and providing guidance on a psychological well-being strategy.
- being an author of How to Get a Job: 10 Easy Steps to Getting the Job you Want for the Salary you Deserve
Previously, while working as an in-house Occupational Psychologist for Governmental departments for 15 years, I led on a wide variety of projects including:
- leadership training design, delivery and evaluation.
- the design and implementation of coaching and mentoring schemes,
- the development and management one of the largest staff surveys across Government surveying some 48,000 staff. Here I developed particular expertise in the drivers of employee engagement and identified the way in which it links with individual and organisational performance,
- the management of staff surveys for Royal Navy and Royal Marines,
- the conduct of stress audits and wellbeing interventions.
As well as being an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and Registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council, I’m trained in the use of a broad range of psychometric measures including 16PF, 15FQ+ and 360 degrees, an ILM Level 7 qualified Executive Coach and an elected member of the BPS Special Group in Coaching.
