I’m Dr Amy Loughman, I’m a psychologist and scientist. I examine how our external environments affect the way we think, feel and function.

Like so many other people, I worked from home throughout the pandemic. The experience got me thinking, "what does the science say about how best to set up a home office and work from home - or anywhere?"

I founded Thoughtful Spaces to provide science-backed information, workshops, tools and consultancy that help people to optimise their physical environments - and how they use them.

Feel free to take a look at my back-catalogue of scientific publications and media appearances.

Support hybrid work, using science.

Thoughtful Spaces addresses a significant challenge of post-pandemic knowledge work: how to optimise workspaces and work practices so that people can work flexibly and with maximum focus, productivity & wellbeing.

Workplace wellbeing is more critical than ever. We need to be proactive about ensuring that the physical spaces of work - at home, in the office or elsewhere - are fostering wellbeing, not adding to stress and attentional demands.

We have translated the evidence from scientific studies to inform the best ways to work in the hybrid and remote/‘WFx’ (work from anywhere) world. Some of this knowledge informs the design of large commercial buildings, but until now has not been available to managers or individuals - without expensive architectural renovations.

Be guided by neuroscience to design and implement simple but intentional work practices to maximise ease, focus, energy, creativity and work satisfaction.

Thoughtful Spaces helps people find simple and affordable ways to improve their workspaces and work practices.
