Natalie  Lancer Author of Evaluating Organization Development

Natalie Lancer

My interests are centred around personal development at both a practical and philosophical level. I am a coach and help people make decisions about what to study and how to leverage their skills in their career. Academically, I am an existential psychologist which means I believe people have a choice about what to do and how to conduct their lives, even when choices seem limited. It is easier than you think to open yourself up to possibilities and everything is negotiable.


I am Director of Higher Education at Immanuel College in Hertfordshire and was previously Assistant Headteacher at an ethnically diverse comprehensive school in London. Through my work, I have recognised the desperate need for mentoring and guidance for students in addition to their formal academic curriculum. Having provided this guidance at schools and colleges, I established my own coaching practice, focused on education and careers ( I have helped countless students realise their potential and secure places at the university of their choice.

At Birkbeck, University of London, I am currently researching the value of coaching undergraduates. I coach young people as part of the Business Skills and Personal Development Programme I designed, recognised by the Institute of Leadership and Management. I am the Director of the Educational Development and Evaluation Centre ( and have lectured and published on coaching in the education sector.
