Jacky Dakin is an experienced psychologist, organisational development consultant, facilitator and executive coach. She is a regular guest presenter and keynote speaker at seminars and conferences. She runs her own organisational consulting business, coupled with a private practice in clinical and counselling psychology. She is also a principal of a consortium with professional colleagues.
She has a passion for helping people be the best they can whether personally or professionally. One of her greatest thrills is when she sees her clients turn a corner and start overcoming their own particular obstacles. They can then make positive changes which move them closer towards their own definition of success.
Jacky is active on several boards and committees, regularly mentors younger colleagues and volunteers for various organisations. She has co-authored a successful book “Short Poppies Can Grow: Confidence at work” and was formerly a regular columnist in the Advertiser Saturday Review section.
