Hello, I am Dr Elaine Smith, a Business Wellbeing Consultant and Psychologist specialising in corporate wellbeing, providing training and consultancy services to leaders in corporate organisations. My private psychology practice was established in 2018, and I have since worked with a range of clients and organisations. I am trained to doctoral level in Clinical Psychology, having previously graduated with BSc Psychology and MSc Forensic Psychology. 

I grew up in Edinburgh where I gained early career experience in several large banks, including a number of Human Resources departments. I then returned to psychology, securing a job in the prison service as my first practitioner psychologist role. I went on to qualify with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2016. My journey through psychology has now come full circle, returning to my passion for workplace wellbeing.

I am now fortunate enough to combine my interest in business and mental health, with my clinical and personal experience, to develop mentally healthy workplaces. 

 

I understand the significance and impact that leaders and line managers can have on mental health at work. I have supported line managers and employees to manage difficult conversations and navigate mental health disclosures and the implementation of reasonable adjustments at work. I have witnessed first hand the real life stories and circumstances that determine if an individual stays in their job or decides to leave. I refer to the 'golden opportunity' that line managers are often presented with when an employee is struggling with their mental health. The opportunity to offer human to human compassion and to listen without judgement. I believe that this is often a missed opportunity as line managers often feel anxious or 'unprepared' to talk about mental health in this capacity. 

 

This is where specialist mental health and wellbeing training for leaders and line managers becomes crucial for businesses who want to take their wellbeing strategy to the next level. I create and deliver programmes especially for leaders in corporate organisations to improve business performance, overall wellbeing, retention and employee engagement.  

 

I take pride in getting to know your company culture and understand any specific challenges in relation to employee mental health and wellbeing. This knowledge helps me to help you, and provide a bespoke package of training to meet the very human needs of your employees, while also taking into account the wider business landscape.
