Talking to Amy felt very natural and we quickly established a programme for my recovery from a severe episode of depression. With regular check in points and working with a psychologist she recommended, I was well supported and am now feeling much more in control of my mental health.
Dr Iversen is an experienced clinician; thorough and thoughtful in her approach, methodical and insightful in assimilating assessments towards workable, practical solutions.

Amy coached several patients at the Practitioners Health Programme and has a proven track record of giving excellent care to doctors. Perhaps because of her own medical training and experience in the NHS, she has a knack of getting to the heart of the issue and creating real change for the people she works with. I would confidently recommend her as a coach to professionals of all kinds, especially doctors.

Moving from a successful career into a new field, I found the new culture disorientating and I struggled with its values. My behaviour deteriorated and I was not performing anywhere close to my best. Amy’s assistance, including a profoundly illuminating report, was invaluable and pivotal. What could have become a high-dive onto rocks became instead a life-changing period of personal exploration and growth. I adapted to my new environment, my performance once again meets my own high expectations and my personal life is a much happier one.

Amy is a true professional and has an excellent knowledge of the evidence base which underpins her work. She combines these skills with her natural empathy and understanding of what makes people tick. I cannot recommend her enough.

Consultant Occupational Physician and Senior Medical Advisor to the Houses of Parliament
I have known Dr Iversen for a number of years in her professional capacity as a consulting clinical psychiatrist. As former Director General of Human Resources and Change at the House of Commons, I was pleased to engage her as a key part of the Parliamentary occupational health and wellbeing team, working with MPs, Lords, and staff of both Houses of Parliament. Amy played a key part in helping us develop our occupational health offer as awareness of the need to tackle mental health issues in the workplace developed.
Dr Iversen brought a unique and broad-based set of skills to bear both in helping us to develop our service and in dealing with individual referrals. Her in-depth combination of medical and psychiatric qualifications, coupled with complimentary CBT and coaching skills have proved to be a powerful combination in handling successfully the most difficult and sensitive issues and cases.

Dealing with a mental health illness is difficult for everyone. But to do so while being in the public eye and in a position of leadership, creates its own pressures. For me once I became ill, the things that had driven me on - self-confidence and motivation - just evaporated. It can be a slow process back to a new normal. But I was fortunate to have Amy and others to support me. I'm not fully back to where I want to be but I am heading in the right direction.
Former Member of Parliament and Minister
A consummate professional, Dr Amy Iversen has played a key role in the Academy of Medical Sciences renowned mentorship scheme over the past decade. She has recently facilitated a highly successful UCL executive education programme on medical innovation for future leaders, which received highly positive feedback from both the emergent leaders and their tutors.
