Why work with Know Your Mind Consulting?

Our founder, Dr Rosie Gilderthorp is a Clinical Psychologist with over 15 years of experience in mental health helping parents to overcome mental health difficulties, connect with their values and thrive personally and professionally.

Rosie experienced severe pregnancy sickness (sometimes called HG) while pregnant with her first child. Her experience of attempting to continue working in the NHS as a Clinical Psychologist, a role that gave her a sense of identity and meaning, while facing the steepest challenge of her life led her to struggle with her own mental health. Since then she has been dedicated to helping other parents going through challenging circumstances to maintain their sense of self and hope so they can thrive at home and at work.

Our team of HCPC-registered Clinical Psychologists have doctoral-level qualifications and decades of experience across the public, private and academic sectors. Our specialist interests include severe pregnancy sickness, birth trauma, gender disappointment and neurodiversity. In order to stay at the cutting edge of evidence we are collaborating with the Innovation in Mental Health project CIC and Kings College London on our own research. Our current project is focused on developing effective interventions for severe pregnancy sickness.

Our Clients Say

Julia Thomson HR manager.jpeg

“It was such a pleasure working with Dr Rosie Gilderthorp on putting together recent a line manager focus session on Family Support Leave and supporting working parents and carers at Bloomsbury Publishing.

As well as some recent statutory changes to policies in this area, we as a business have put together some new family-friendly company policies and wanted to provide a session designed for line managers which would provide an overview of these new polices, but also show line managers how they could complement them by understanding the proactive support they could offer. Dr Rosie’s expertise and engaging delivery provided much needed clarity and guidance on how to effectively support our teams, particularly in managing mental health concerns.

The session was insightful and also practical, providing our line managers with improved knowledge and the tools necessary to navigate the complexities of family support leave. Dr Rosie offered some really valuable tips on how managers can ensure our employees utilising these new polices feel supported and understood during challenging times.

The feedback received from our teams has been really positive, with many of the attendees commenting on Dr Rosie’s engaging and approachable style and the actionable advice that she has provided. The session has not only increased our line manager’s confidence in raising the topic of mental health with a colleague, but has reinforced our commitment to fostering a supportive and empathetic workplace.

I would highly recommend Dr Rosie for any organisation looking to enhance their understanding and implementation of family support leave and mental health support.”
