Hi! I’m Vanessa; born in Lisbon and living in the South East Coast of England at the moment.
I have been in a serious relationship with Psychology for the last 10 years. I have also studied Eastern Philosophy and Nutrition for an even greater amount of time. Actually, I don’t know which I love most: Psychology or Food!
I consult companies as a Business Psychologist and I keep a private practise as a Health and Wellbeing Coach. I also teach on Change Management, Stress, Wellbeing and Work-Life Balance at the University of Kent.
I am currently finishing a PhD on the social and organisational consequences of age diversity and on how social-cognitive interventions, such as mindfulness meditation, may reduce age bias at work. I heard that I am also building and validating a new organisational scale, but I suspect it might be a myth. But if you do need a hand on how to build a psychological instrument, do ask me as I have a short list of references to give you.
As you can see, I have also a very peculiar humour. And no, I am not the regular South European bossy type of person. It just happens that I know what I do stand for. So please don’t hesitate in sending me a message, as I only bite carrots coated with humous.
