About Us

​Psyche & Heart was founded by Hilary Fearn and Sarah Fearn. Previously, the mother and daughter team built up an award winning construction company, Acketts Group Ltd, working for major financial organisations and blue chip companies. Part of the success of the company came from developing the talents of a diverse workforce. Having sold Acketts Group Ltd to an international competitor they now support other organisations to achieve success. 

Psyche & Heart specialises in HR and business consultancy. The company also offers training on a wide range of subjects, such as line management, neurodiversity, and nationally recognised courses in Mental Health First Aid. Inspiring public speakers are available for conferences and events.


One of the things that makes Psyche & Heart unique is the inclusion of relevant employment law in many Psyche & Heart training courses.
