As founder of executive search firm The Lighthouse Company, Kathleen has always been fascinated by the workings of the human mind and psyche. After an initial 19 year commercial career in the marketing, media and technology world she set up the Lighthouse in 2009 to bring a psychological lens to the world of executive search, ensuring that the individual psychology and motivations behind any new leadership hire is at the heart of every appointment.
This curiosity of the human mind led Kathleen to take a parallel 5 year journey to qualify as a Psychotherapist – a journey that has blossomed into her partnership with fellow leading Psychotherapist and Executive Coach, Ben McKie and the subsequent launch of Psyched Global. Together with Ben and the pioneering practitioners who are at the heart of every Psyched experience, Kathleen’s ambition is to ensure the best talent receives the very best care to support them through their careers, personal life and beyond.
As well as being pivotal to the creation of Psyched’s psychoeducation initiative, psychotherapy clinic, executive coaching and retreat programmes, Kathleen also extends her own duty of care to individuals by practicing on a weekly basis in clinic in Central London.
