Emily's interest in people's behaviour at work started over a decade ago with a degree in Psychology from Goldsmiths College, London, where her dissertation explored the relationship between personality and motivation in organisations. Emily also has an MSc in Occupational Psychology from Birkbeck College, London and continues to be involved in academic research.
Prior to joining Nicholson McBride in 2004, Emily worked in the Human Resources field for AXA, gaining skills in assessment, profiling, performance management and other aspects of employee development. As an organisational psychologist, Emily is trained in a number of instruments, including Myers-Briggs, NEO-PI, Thomas-Kilmann, and the Strength Deployment Inventory, and also has a diploma in performance coaching. As part of the Nicholson McBride team, Emily is most rewarded by the challenge of diagnosing and responding to the breadth of issues presented by clients.
