About Today’s Guest Dr Erica Bowen
Psychologist, Coach and Imagineer of The Hope-Makers
A Registered Forensic and Coaching Psychologist, Hope-Makers are who I work with and provide services for.
If you are a social entrepreneur, sole trader, run a small company with a social purpose, or a charitable business, then I’m here for you. My mission is to help you increase your impact on the world, but keep you sane, and help you protect yourself against burnout.
My professional journey began 20 years ago when I became an academic psychologist working in family violence prevention. In the last 20 years, I have created evidence-based interventions, provided consultancy to the English and Scottish governments on behaviour-change programmes. Led international, national, and local research programmes focusing on service development and evaluation.
In 2020, after a successful academic career, I left my role as Professor to pursue my business—The Hope-Makers. I am fuelled by a desire to make the world a better place and know that by supporting you to do the same, we can achieve this together. Every element of The Hope-Makers expresses this mission.
Through Hope-Makers Coaching I bring together these strands of experience into innovative individual and small-group coaching programmes that are evidence-based and combine solution-focused, cognitive behavioural and havening techniques.
The Hope-Makers Podcast shines a light on incredible stories of how overcoming personal challenges led purpose-driven professionals to connect with their deeper purpose and turn it into a business.
The Hope-Makers Forum is an exclusive membership community through which I provide peer support, coaching, networking and business master-mind opportunities monthly.
