Frequently Asked Questions
How can an organisational or occupational psychologist help and add value to my company?
An organisational or occupational psychologist can help you to increase the overall effectiveness of your organisation. Thrive Qube helps improve working lives, job satisfaction, and employee engagement. We can support you throughout the entire employee journey, starting at the interview stage. We want to help ensure you hire the right people for your organisation, understand why employees may be leaving, and advise you on how to get the best out of your employees. We do this via individual coaching, improving communication skills, and building confidence. We train staff on how to manage stress, build resilience to prevent burnout, and improve wellness and increase creativity. Thrive Qube can guide managers to be better leaders, and can support staff during times of change and restructuring.
I work in a company and am looking for a coach. Is this something you do?
Yes, we offer executive coaching. Have a look at our programmes for individuals to see if there is something that catches your eye. By creating tailored solutions, we can build an approach that suits your personal circumstances and needs.
Can you help teams that have gone through a lot of transitions and has new members?
Absolutely! Thrive Qube’s expertise lies in assessing what each individual brings to a team. We do this through the use of assessments and tailor all training based on this data. We can help you to create a more cohesive and productive team where people respect and trust each other.
Why offer unconscious bias training ? I've read it doesn't work.
Unconscious Bias Training (UBT) is intended to increase awareness of unconscious bias and its impact on people belonging to certain groups (think of age, race, sex, disability, religion or belief). It can be effective in reducing implicit bias (these are views that we are not even aware we hold!). If the trainings are very general, research shows they actually increase the likelyhood that people will act in biased ways. However, targeted trainings and longer term programmes still have a place in a company’s overall Diversity and Inclusion strategy. I create interactive workshops and always look to create more long term solutions to bring about change.

I am currently on maternity leave, and am looking at returning to the workplace. Can you help?
We are passionate about creating gender balance in the workplace; you cannot achieve a real balance if women are not supported during one of the key stages in their lives. Our work with you is based on both formal training and personal experience. We can help you discover what is right for you, so that you can return to the workplace with confidence too. Contact us to discuss how.
What qualifications do you hold and can I come to you for therapy?
Yes you can! I have an undergraduate degree in Social and Clinical Psychology and a postgraduate degree in Occupational Psychology (both accredited by the British Psychological Society) as well as a Diploma in Counselling Skills which is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also a member of the Netherlands Institute of Psychologists (Nederlands Instituut van Psychologen, NIP). In addition am currently following an additional study in the Netherlands which means, you may be able to claim some of your therapy costs via your health insurance, depending on your insurance package.
