Welcome to the website of Dr Barry Hymer. Barry is an experienced teacher, educational psychologist, trainer, writer, consultant and academic, and following his retirement from a salaried academic position he is now Emeritus Professor of Psychology in Education at the University of Cumbria in Lancaster. He has delivered keynote and workshop presentations at hundreds of national and international conferences, and worked in a training and consultancy capacity with well over two thousand schools and LAs. Barry retains a limited capacity for direct work with schools and other clients (see Consultancy page). Together with Osiris Educational he developed the Osiris Mindset Programme.

Barry’s work aims always to respect the capacity of teachers and students to take ownership of their learning agenda, in a way which allows them to realize their personal and educational values in their own practice.
