Dr Amy Iversen

Bold Transformative Conversations

I am an experienced executive and performance coach with a unique skill set.

I graduated with a first class degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of Cambridge, and then trained and qualified as a medical doctor. I combined my clinical training in psychiatry with a PhD in Epidemiology from the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London. I worked in mental health services for fifteen years and I am an experienced clinician.

In 2008, I trained as an executive and leadership coach with Jenny Rogers at Management Futures, who became my supervisor and mentor. At the same time, I trained in a related and complimentary discipline of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at the Institute of Psychiatry and I now practice using a hybrid of coaching and CBT. My style is bold, honest, and intuitive.

I have extensive experience of providing coaching in business and corporations and understand the demands of performance coaching in these settings. I pride myself on delivering coaching which balances the needs of the individual client with the wider needs of the organisation in which they operate.

I have wide experience in the public sector, especially in the NHS where I coach aspiring leaders and senior clinicians, and have been extensively involved with the delivery and evaluation of the Academy of Medical Sciences Mentoring Scheme, an internationally recognized model of good practice for supporting the careers of junior scientists.

I have worked with the Church of England delivering training to build resilience in their clergy.

Between 2011 and 2016, I was the psychiatrist responsible for the staff and Members of the Houses of Parliament.
