New Zealander Dr Ceri Evans graduated in medicine with distinction
from the University of Otago. He gained first class honours in
Experimental Psychology on a Rhodes Scholarship at the University
of Oxford while playing professional football in the English
Championship. Awarded the Gaskell Gold Medal by the Royal College
of Psychiatrists, he then specialised in forensic psychiatry and
completed a PhD in traumatic memory.
After returning home to Christchurch, he was Clinical Director of the Canterbury Forensic Psychiatric Service and served as an expert witness in major cases. In 2018 he was made a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and awarded his football coaching A Licence.
Ceri's reputation generates diverse invitations from leading international organisations determined to help their people deliver in demanding situations.
His Red-Blue mind model is used by people serious about performing under pressure, from doctors to lawyers, executive teams to specialist teams, and from professionals to amateurs. He is perhaps best known for his work with the New Zealand All Blacks for whom he has provided specialist consultancy since 2010.
Now in private practice, you will otherwise find Ceri with his head in a book, exercising, or with Therese trying to find out what their three children are up to at university.
