supporting leaders through coaching!

Business Psychologist practice

Excited to share that we are now offering a business psychologist practice @ simplicity. This includes 121 coaching, counselling, facilitation and orchestration. We work with the bespoke RESILI-SENCE process - helping leaders develop their internal resilience though cognitive, sense making and somatic practice. 

The Resili-sence process works with leaders cognitive thoughts and presenting issues, and also goes much deeper into the psychological and somatic senses of your intuition. Together we discover more about your adult self, and any barriers or patterning which blocks working and making decisions from the most potent parts of the self. The work is emergent and based in exploring the here and now. While we will work primarily on your work intentions and expectations, we are cognisant that identity is much bigger than that, including many aspects of the past and future, and these will flow in and out of the process. We can pause and explore those as it emerges and you experience its impact on you. 

"It is remarkable how the coaching@simplicity has strengthened my understanding  and capacity to articulate clearly how ideas should and should not be communicated. This skill is something very special as it allowed me to recognise the psycho-social background from which I was communicating my demands on processes and on people, which often resulted in a more complicated understanding of my point of view. At the same time the language became less cluttered, more simple but yet more powerful leading to important results and outcomes. It involved linking my professional, social and emotional elements to ensure effective results on a complex project which were positive for all concerned."

"In addition to the wealth of experience, Dr Abraham-Dowsing brings to the team both flare and practicality, which is a difficult combination to pull off."

Dr Caroline Harper, Head of Programme, Gender Equality and Social Inclusion, ODI, UK.

"I found the meeting very stimulating.  It reminds us that perspectives on norm change – even within the same disciplinary approach – are also uniquely different and contested.  It also reminds us that absorbing the implications of disciplinary perspectives takes considerable time.  Importantly learning how to interpret behaviors is vital, but the best we can do is give people a range of options as to how norms may change so they can draw on that which is most relevant to them in their particular contexts and moments in time. 

Thank you for the opportunity to be part of this learning group.

Amanda Noonan, Strategy Director, Social Impact, Frog Design

"For me this was a wonderful introduction to a community working at the edges of academic rigor, depth of experience and a pragmatic, inclusive approach to a growing solutions space.  Personally, I am keen to dig deeper into the possibilities offered by the bridging of behavioral science and human-centered design, particularly understanding motivations, trust and influence with ecosystems as a basis for appropriate, impactful and sustainable design and use.  The MSN Collaborator will provide a great place of experience exchange and collective action. I sincerely hope to have the opportunity to participate and contribute in future."
