“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.“

About

Sarah Phillips qualified in Systems:Psychodynamic Organisation Consultancy in 2004.  First discovering the power of this approach during a leadership role in the NHS, as her Director/Manager was qualified and used the approach with her.  Sarah considered the insights from this approach key to the success of whole system change project she led.  Going on to undertake the course herself, which was transformative and continued to lead to positive outcomes in many areas life, particularly where it helps to understand role, groups and organisation dynamics. Sarah is pleased to offer this service to help others excel in their professional career, maintain a work life balance to suit them, leave roles or progress within them.  She really enjoys the consultancy work, fascinated by organisation systems, dynamics that clients bring.

More about Sarah

Principal consultant Sarah Phillips offers a space to think and take positive action and works with psychoanalysts and other systems consultants depending on project needs. Sarah Phillips Trained  at The Tavistock, London: Qualified and trained to work with Individuals, Group and Organisations/systems. Virtual MA in Organisation Consultancy-Systems:Psychodynamic Approach (2007).

Previous work in operational leading as an emergency nurse (sister), a clinical trainer and corporate nursing.  An academic author, national competency lead, and an SME CEO since 2007 and many years as a bar person in Glasgow while studying, all give a broad foundation of experience.  Sarah's company  runs with a small team delivering online clinical skills training using an innovation internationally.  Winning a showcase in Qatar, for an innovation that has the potential to affect healthcare globally was a highlight for this work. Sarah know's what it is to deliver, lead and implement change and her training and qualifications from the Tavistock ensure a solid foundation for supporting others using this approach.  I undertake regular supervision with a psychoanalyst, who has completed the Tavistock MA.


More about Sarah's Training and Qualification to consult with this approach

Studying at the internationally recognised centre of excellence for psychological practice was transformative and Sarah enjoys sharing elements that are useful with the systems-psychodynamic approach: ( The Tavistock, London)   Some of the leading thinkers and theories in group dynamics, leadership and organisational consultancy originated in the Tavistock.  Some of the leading thinkers and theories in group dynamics, leadership and organisational consultancy originated at the Tavistock.  Sarah 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.

Sarah's Approach

Working with an individual in organisation role analysis (ORA)  (similar to executive coaching), using a Systems-psychodynamic approach for positive outcomes for the  individual, groups and whole organisation benefit.  This distinct approach is dynamic where Sarah's  expertise meets the clients experience and knowledge of their organisation, team or role.  Together the space is created  to think about work, organisation, team, role or all three, considering the whole systems with understanding of psychodynamic processes to help uncover what is really going on.  What that means is we learn how you work, what you do and experience in your system/organisation.  Understanding emerges which not only helps you navigate current challenges but also sets you up to achieve your goals.

Sarah's Current Work and Interests

Consulting to people in challenging roles in public and private sector leads and entrepreneurs who want space to think and consider wider perspective to understand complex issues.

Currently working with many different roles, including leaders working in complex environments such as Afghanistan.

Keeping updated and privacy

I keep updated by attending international conferences as well as Tavistock Alumni regular meetings. I am member or International Society for the Psychoanalytic study of Organisations (ISPSO) I recently attended a two day virtual event with NIODA - National Institute for Organisation Dynamics Australia

All sessions are completely confidential and as a psychoanalytic practitioner and Sarah undertakes regular supervision from a psychoanalst who is also an organisation consultant.  Meetings are strictly confidential and never recorded.  This is important to point out to all but also for high profile clients whose role has sensitivities or is of public interest about the help they need.

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.
