Dr Sonya Wallbank is a consultant clinical psychologist and specialises in workforce resilience and restorative approaches to wellbeing. She has worked in the NHS as a director of service delivery and workforce, leading complex change and improvement programmes for NHS England and NHS Improvement, including the delivery of the health and wellbeing response for NHS staff during the Covid-19 pandemic.

She has also led HR services and operating model change for the Department of Health and Social Care and worked directly with organisations, teams and individuals wanting to change how they work in the UK, Australia and the US. She has authored materials to enable organisations to embed their own approach to restorative supervision. Sonya lectures on how focusing supervision and support on the needs of the individual, not just the work they deliver reduces stress, burnout and improves the pleasure people derive from their work.
