Some of the leading thinkers and theories in group dynamics, leadership and organisational consultancy originated at the Tavistock and I was fortunate to access tutors who held decades of experience in corporate, psychoanalytic work as well as those currently exploring the dynamics of the workplace through work or Research. This broad range helped me uncover the unique psychological perspective helpful to systems in corporate and public sector and laterally entrepreneurs. It was a personally transformative course where I learnt first hand the importance of containment and boundary to truly uncover what happens in organisations.

It has been so encouraging listening to Sarah in her professional capacity and thanks to her I now view some of my challenging work matters from a much wider perspective. I have been absorbing her positive approach on how to develop innovative ideas and key relationships in my role. She always has the calm, sound advice a healthcare professional needs during their ever changing and unpredictable work environment. Her organisational analysis experience shines through when we talk, it is a great pleasure to know Sarah.
I have known Sarah for many years in her professional capacity. I have found her to be very encouraging, enthusiastic and a believer in achieving goals and objectives, no matter how difficult the barriers may seem. Sarah has a quick analytical mind, seeing things that most of us would not spot until it maybe to late to rectify. This talent is imperative when business decisions need to be made as the outcome could mean success or failure. Sarah is a good listener and has a great 'can do' attitude. I have never felt the need to ask her twice to undertake any actions; her organisational skills from inception to delivery are exemplary
The insights are really helpful leading to a discussion with Sarah that keeps me focussed while there is so much disturbance and around my role as well as the change I am leading. I look forward to our weekly meeting, in a way they keep me steady and calm knowing that I have somewhere to "digest' all that is going on. The time to think it through is a diary appointment I protect more than all my others! So pleased I found this service and Sarah.
