OUR TEAM

Meet our team of passionate and dedicated professionals:  

Rebecca Good
Rebecca Good
Senior Educational Psychologist - Director
Rebecca Good is one of the founding directors of Éirim. Having grown up in a family of psychologists, Rebecca’s interest in the subject blossomed from an early age. Coupled with a keen interest in education and her teaching background, it was natural that Rebecca would follow the path of Educational Psychology. Now, with over 10 years experience in the field of psychology, assessment and research, Rebecca is one of the most Senior Educational Psychologists within the company. Of course, Rebecca could never escape her passion for education and took on the role of Director of training services here where she spends much time creating and tutoring on Éirim’s professional development courses.  Outside work, Rebecca is kept busy with her 3 children and scoring goals on the hockey pitch!
Kate James
Kate James
Senior Educational Psychologist - Director

I’m Kate, one of the senior educational psychologists in Éirim. Being dyslexic myself I’ve always had a keen interest in helping people understand their own personal learning style to help them achieve to the best of their potential in school or work. If you come to the office you might be lucky enough to meet my little border terrier Roxy in the office as she comes in sometimes and cheers everyone up!

Geraldine Malin
Geraldine Malin
Office Manager

Geraldine is our Office Manager and she is the first person you will make contact with in Éirim.  Geraldine’s working life has mainly been in an office environment but did divert into a caring role for a period of time which gave her a greater empathy and understanding of other people’s needs.  In her spare time, Geraldine likes to knit and is very proud that she recently knitted an Aran jumper for her teenage daughter (!!).  Geraldine loves to travel with family and friends and cycling, reading and Netflix also keep her busy.  When her homelife allows, Geraldine fosters dogs.
