Dr Derek Mowbray
Dr Derek Mowbray is an Organisation Health Psychologist who specialises in the primary prevention of stress in the workplace. His approach is to create the workplace as a ‘fabulous place to work; a place where people get out of bed in the morning and run to work’.
Part of the processes involved in prevention are those required to strengthen the resilience of organisations and individuals. He is an Independent Technical Expert in psychological wellbeing to the European Commission, and was previously a visiting Professor of Psychology at Northumbria and Gloucestershire Universities. He is a director of MAS and OrganisationHealth.
Derek has a doctorate in the psychology of leadership, is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society, a Chartered Scientist, and Fellow of The Institute of Health and Social Care Management. In 1988-89, he researched and was author of a joint BPS/DoH funded Review of Clinical Psychology which was judged by The Psychologist as one of the best pieces of research of that decade.
In his previous life, Derek was a chief executive or equivalent of three National Health Service (NHS) organisations, including St. Thomas’ Hospital in London. He has also been a chief executive of a Charitable Trust. He combines his practical experience with his academic work to provide clients with sound practical solutions to the psychological problems created by organisations and people in the workplace.
