More Than Career Coaching, it’s Career Psychology®

Whether you are an individual interested in improving your own career or you’re an employer who wants to strengthen your team and your leaders you’re in the right place. My name is Dr. Helen Ofosu and I will help you make the most of your skills, experience, values, and interests to build a satisfying and resilient career or a stronger organization. I use my expertise in Industrial/Organizational (I/O) psychology and my 15 years of professional experience to help you jump start or re-start your career. I’m the first to admit that I/O psychology is a clunky title, but it means that I’ve developed an efficient, effective, and unique program for my clients as a result of postgraduate studies, research, and professional practice. Since I/O psychology is not well known outside of certain contexts, I’ve written a short article and published a video that explains why I use it as my foundation for Career Coaching and HR consulting.

But there’s one key factor that’s driving a lot of churn in organizations …

Black Psychology – What is it and why is it important?

While largely unknown, Black Psychology as a discipline has an established history. As a graduate student, Dr. Helen stumbled upon a book called Black Psychology (Third Edition) which was published in 1991. The book addressed the need to develop a Black perspective on the conceptualization, research, and practice of Psychology. So many years later, with so few Black psychologists in Canada and the United States, there still is a significant gap in the field. This Q&A blog provides a quick overview.
