About

Background

After a successful career in health and fitness, as a personal instructor working primarily with performing artists, Almuth retrained in psychology. She took her BSc and MSc at Goldsmiths, University of London. She completed her PhD in Organisational Psychology at City University, where she worked with the Psychometrics Centre as a Senior Consultant. Almuth then moved to the University of Surrey, where she was course director for the MSc in Occupational and Organizational Psychology. She now combines academic posts at City University, where she is a senior lecturer in organisational psychology, and Birkbeck College with work as an independent consultant across the public and private sector. Almuth’s particular interests include working with emergency services, and the development of work-life balance self-management competence, but also the use of psychometrics. She was chair for the Division of Occupational Psychology in 2013, and has been instrumental in reshaping the training path for occupational psychology in the UK. Her work has been featured in the press, including Grazia Magazine, the Financial Times and the Sunday Times, and she regularly speaks on national and regional radio. Here is a profile which was published in the Psychologist in 2013, which sums up Almuth’s philosophy well: One on one with Almuth McDowall

Professional Activities

Almuth is the past chair for the British Psychological Society’s Division of Occupational Psychology. Key achievements during her time as chair in 2013 include the revision of the National MSc Standards for Occupational Psychology. She is now leading a strategy group to oversee the revision of the Stage 2 (AKA Chartership) standards. She is also actively involved with the Special Group in Coaching Psychology, having co-chaired the Scientific Congress/ Conference Board for the past few years. Almuth edits Coaching: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice.
