About Us – Mind Science

About Us

Mind Science operates as a community of experts and practitioners, all of whom enjoy the challenge of organisational problem-solving and are dedicated to making a difference. The organisation was set up in 2019 by Rebecca McKeown, a Chartered Psychologist with over 15 years of experience in using psychology to solve business problems.

Rebecca was awarded her MSc in Applied Psychology at Cranfield University in 2004 and went on to successfully deliver a wide range of projects for governments, regulators and industry both nationally and internationally – including Airbus, the Defence Centre of Training Support, Qatar Airways, the UK Civil Aviation Authority, and the Ministry of Defence.  In addition to delivering client project work, Rebecca worked as a Lecturer in Applied Psychology.  To provide a high quality education  for her students, Rebecca carried out research into learning and development in adult education to inform her practice.  She continues to use the results of this research to design and deliver innovative learning approaches embedded in enjoyable and well-constructed programmes for Mind Science.

Rebecca is also an experienced Assessor for both selection and development Assessment Centres and works for a range of corporate clients to support their recruitment processes.  In addition to this, Rebecca has 15 years experience of Executive Coaching and career guidance. She takes a person-centred approach to her coaching sessions and tailors her methods according to the requirements of each individual. She also has excellent interpersonal skills which enable her to ensure that her coaching sessions are effective in both understanding and meeting her client’s needs.
