Dr Vanessa Moulton

Dr Vanessa Moulton is a Chartered Counselling Psychologist who has 17 years’ experience within the mental health field. She has over the years provided a range of treatment and prevention based support to enable and maintain individuals and employees Psychological Health.


Vanessas career as a Chartered Psychologist has involved working across private, public, military and charity sectors, and she has had extensive experience in one-to-one therapy, coaching, psychological consulting and organisation performance delivery. Having worked as the Head of Psychological Services at the charity “Help for Heroes”, she also has in-depth experience of setting up and running Psychological Services.

Additional experience includes being a key member of the MoD’s mental health team at their primary Rehabilitation Centre during the peak of the Afghanistan conflict, and being the Expedition Consulting Psychologist for ‘Walking with the Wounded’s’ South Pole challenge. She was the Clinical Lead of the MoD’s Mental Fitness platform ‘Headfit’ and she passionately continues to deliver psychological fitness training to global companies, enabling staff to understand the importance of engaging with proactive and preventative Psychological Fitness tools and strategies to help prevent mental ill health.

As the founder of ‘Mindflex Group’, she works one-to-one treating mental ill health and delivering coaching, and her focus on promoting and enabling Psychological Fitness for everyone, has become a vital part of her work. Organisations such as ITV have utilised her proactive approach to ensure all staff globally are equipped to protect their psychological health, alongside the reactive strategies they have as part of their mental health strategy.

Vanessa sits on the Government’s ‘Veterans Affairs Office Advisory Board’, is a Trustee of ‘The Icarus Charity’ (a Mental Health charity for veterans) and is the Mental Health Consultant for ‘The Invictus Foundation’.


Vanessa’s approach is characterised by a deep commitment to enhancing psychological well-being within corporate environments. Naturally passionate about the subject matter and in the value of a ‘science-led approach’, she expands the scope of psychological health from a reactive stance to a proactive one.

In her coaching and training sessions Vanessa is both practical and approachable, fostering an environment where individuals and teams are encouraged to explore their own and others psychological needs and aspirations. Central to her approach is a belief in the power of equipping individuals with the scientific insights necessary not only to recognise and address psychological needs, but also to make sense of them. Vanessa believes that this understanding is pivotal in establishing a coherent, consistent, and sustainable pathway towards positive behavioural change—a concept that is particularly resonant given the logical framework within which our brains like to function.

Drawing upon her extensive experience collaborating with large organisations and senior executives, Vanessa likes to challenge and be challenged. She actively seeks to engage her audience with lively and interesting discussion, ensuring participants leave her sessions equipped with enhanced clarity, and a heightened capacity to navigate and achieve their psychological objectives.

“I have gotten a huge amount out of coaching with Vanessa. As a time-poor leader who wants to be brilliant, effective and fair, the risk is I will achieve none of those by spreading myself too thin. Vanessa has helped me to think clearly and prioritise. I have enjoyed having space to think out loud and relished being challenged. Every minute of our sessions has helped to give me clarity.”
