Learning, Leadership & Wellbeing

4Ps and MaPS logos stacked

Let me help you rediscover the power of your own curiosity…

For the past two decades I have been working at the leading edge of learning for wellbeing, belonging, and growth.

This includes my pioneering approaches; the 4Ps Framework for Health, Safety & Wellbeing, and the MaPS Academy for whole-organisation culture change in health and wellbeing. I have led the implementation of these approaches in a number of high profile, global companies and organisations.

This is complimented by my packages in personal and relational (soft) skills development, resilience, and leadership.

I work with organisations of all sizes, as well as with individuals and community groups, to create and deliver learning and development programmes that equip and empower people to become better at being them; in their work, their relationships and in the wider world.

Who I work with

Whether you are a start-up or SME early in your L&D, Wellbeing, and Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging journey, or a large organisation looking for a review and refresh, I can help you to design an integrated strategy and menu of programmes tailored especially to your people and your business.

“I worked directly with Jacqui in the delivery of a range of courses, to a variety of client groups. In all cases she proved herself to be able to apply her knowledge of psychology in a practical and helpful way that allows people to tailor it to their own individual circumstances. Jacqui was sensitive to the needs of delegates who have suffered or are suffering from trauma reactions and often helped them to make sense of them and to access the support they need, whilst contributing to culture change in their organisations in relation to psychological wellbeing and support for psychological distress.”

Alistair Hollington

Director of Training, @ Lazarus Training Teoranta

“There are very few people in life who combine experience of command authority with humanity and professional expertise. Jacqui excels in all three.

I met Jacqui through her work as an applied psychologist, when she was developing highly innovative new approaches to workplace wellbeing and psychological safety. I was impressed not only by her ability to integrate challenging (and indeed conceptually complex) ideas from scientific clinical psychology into her work as an applied psychologist, but also her ability to adapt and shape these ideas to new contexts and, through her experience of leadership as well as education, to help colleagues implement these ideas in the real world. Jacqui has an impressive CV – one I would be very proud of. It has a breadth of experience that make her an asset in a wide range of roles, and I have been privileged to have worked with her… and I hope our collaboration will continue, as I have a great deal still to learn from her.”

Professor of Clinical Psychology at University of Liverpool, Past President of the British Psychological Society

“Jacqui worked on a project run by myself at Sheffield Hallam University and the director of South Yorkshire Filmmakers Network, with a group of Film Media and Production students – Mental Health & Working in Film and TV. Jacqui created and delivered sessions on building personal resilience and accessing resources to overcome mental health challenges at work and handling difficult conversations, scenarios and reasonable adjustments at work. Jacqui was a pleasure to work with and her openness and honesty was refreshing and inspiring. The students really enjoyed and benefited from her sessions, saying: “always inspirational to hear from Jacqui” and “Jacqui was really informative and made me feel more positive about myself”.

Rachel Gradwell

Higher Education Employability Advisor at Sheffield Hallam University

“I approached Jacqui because I’d just taken on a new team, and I wanted to create an environment of honesty, integrity and trust for us all. Jacqui helped me do this by interpreting what I needed and then facilitated a number of sessions that made us think about our team identity, our behaviours and how we wanted to relate to each other. The result is a team with a close, trusting relationship, who abide by a set of guiding principles and have a strong team identity. I would definitely recommend Jacqui if, like me, you are wanting to bring together individuals that complement and understand each other.”

Michelle Ong

Head of Core Team, Joseph Rowntree Foundation

“I met Jacqui at the BBC, when she was the Mental Health lead. She cares passionately about her subject, communicates it engagingly and is intent on encouraging mental well-being. She connects with others extremely well, thinks on her feet in a training situation and responds to any challenge thrown at her. She is truly inspiring!”
