Bridging the gap between scientific research and practice matters. Being a “practitioner” at heart, Anne prefers action-research projects.

Key research interests include exploring the impact of stillness (e.g., mindfulness-based programmes) and movement (e.g., physical activity programmes) on mental wellbeing and performance in workplace, sport and education settings.

Anne’s current doctoral project with Decathlon explores the efficacy of a workplace mindfulness-based programme.

Anne holds Masters in International Business and an MSc in Performance Psychology.

“I think we have only just scratched the surface of Anne’s capabilities. Calm, thoughtful, attentive and responsive to the individual and the organisation, she has helped us in Sodexo embrace mindfulness in our aim to improve performance and keep our people safe and healthy.”
