Denise Taylor, Career Psychologist is a Chartered Psychologist, Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, Advanced Registered Guidance Practitioner and a double award winning career coach. She established Amazing People in 1998 with an emphasise on a highly personal service with excellent customer care.
Many people offer career coaching, what makes Denise stand out is the combination of expert knowledge, creativity, energy and personal warmth.
Denise is considered to be one of the top UK career strategists. Her career books include ‘How To Get A Job In A Recession’ and ‘Now You’ve Been Shortlisted’ and her 11 eBooks include ‘How To Use LinkedIn To Find A New Job’. Denise is regularly featured in the media (The Times, Sun, She, Esquire, Metro, Daily Mail and contributes to the Guardian Career Forums ).
With a first degree in psychology, master’s degrees in occupational psychology and business admin (MBA) and a never ending curiosity for new knowledge, Denise shares this knowledge through her books, media appearances plus online programmes and one to one coaching.
Denise constantly looks to identify new trends to keep her clients ahead of the game. She is a thought leader, always on the lookout for what’s new, and how to use this to benefit her clients and a wider audience. Denise is curious, adventurous and an adventurer.
Denise offers practical guidance alongside an open and supportive coaching style. Her purpose is to support ambitious, positive people to understand who they are so they can develop a fulfilling and successful career. She’s been doing this for over 25 years and has more energy than ever!
Work doesn’t feel like work when you follow your passion but Denise makes time to explore new interests. Denise’s adventures includes trips and treks around India, Namibia, Belize and more. She continually explores new music, through dancing in muddy fields at festivals and DJaying (private gigs only!). There’s also the challenge of losing over 10 stone in weight to find the slim Denise through healthy eating and challenging fitness routines.
