RV13423 13


Robyn works with senior teams and leaders developing relational and systemic awareness to enhance leadership in complex and dynamic environments. A leadership consultant and chartered clinical psychologist, she specialises in organisational dynamics and leadership consultancy, working with senior leaders across public, charity and commercial sectors.

Robyn completed a degree in Experimental Psychology at Oxford University, and then trained and worked in psychology services in the UK’s National Health Service for twenty years. Robyn has taught at a number of universities on professional doctoral degree programmes supervising both practice development and academic research. Throughout her career in the health and university sectors, Robyn became increasingly aware that the context in which any team, department or service is operating, impacts on the culture and effectiveness of the organisation.

After attending a Group Relations Conference, an immersive learning event first pioneered by the Tavistock, Robyn completed an MA in Management and Organisational Dynamics at the University of Essex and then worked at Tavistock Consulting, an Organisational Development and Change Consultancy, consulting to leaders, senior teams and groups using the systems psychodynamic approach. Her experience here over eight years include global manufacturing, national and international grant-making charities, health, education and financial services.

Robyn continues to work as an organisational consultant, as a consultant staff member on Group Relations Conferences, and as a leadership coach. She is a tutor and trainer for coaching and consultancy courses in the UK and abroad, including at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust. She is Director of Tavistock Consulting’s Executive Coaching Programme.
