Who we are

Rosalyn McCarthy


Rosalyn has been working as a Chartered Psychologist since 1987, firstly as Head of Business Psychology at BT, and since 1992 as a consultant specialising in individual and team coaching, assessment, leadership and organisational development.

She is interested in using the knowledge gained from her psychological and commercial background to resolving practical business problems.  Rosalyn has worked in both the private and public sectors gaining a breadth of experience which informs her work and she particularly enjoys the cross-cultural projects which she undertakes in global organisations.

In working with senior leaders and managers she uses a range of psychometric tools and coaching models, and in recent years she has increasingly focused on how they can develop appropriate leadership styles to be effective in their particular business environment which is often going through complex change.

Rosalyn has conducted research related to creativity and innovation and she has published articles on this subject. Her PhD focused on the pressures faced by women managers and their choice of coping strategy and she has a particular interest in the management of stress.
