Anne Carroll – MA in psychotherapy

Operations and Executive Well-Being

Anne joined IPMS in 2012.  She is responsible for assessing individual leaders, to connect them to the right programmes in order to directly improve personal and business capacity and capability.  She also oversees general IPMS operations globally. Anne holds a BA/LLB(Hons) from the University of Auckland and her early career was in corporate/contract law in both the private and public sectors in New Zealand.  Following this she spent several years managing HR and operations in various projects in Taiwan’s private education sector.  She then moved to the UK where she worked for ten years in operations and HR management, in the training consultancy and finance sectors.  She has bought, sold and delivered HR training services internationally.  As such, she recognised that IPMS’ assessment tools and leadership programmes are unique in connecting people skills development with business performance systems training, a combination she had not seen offered elsewhere in a single programme or provider.

During her time in the UK Anne gained her MA in Psychotherapy and Healing Practice, and also completed extensive trainings in relaxation, well-being and trauma relief therapy.  She is registered with the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).  In addition to her work with IPMS, Anne sees a number of clients in private practice.
