Team support and consultancy

Working in teams and in organisations can be challenging and at times highly stressful, both at an individual and group level. Teams are affected by interpersonal relationships; wider organisational dynamics such as departmental restructuring, retrenchments, redundancies and external influences such as mergers or takeovers.

At an individual level, people in demanding careers, for example in business, are often under great pressure as are members of the helping professions, for example those working in the public sector, the NHS, Social Services and education or charities.

Some individuals may become so enmeshed in their careers that they neglect other areas of their lives, leading to a considerable work/life imbalance. If not addressed, this can lead to emotional difficulties, burnout, and of course serious health problems.

My work is underpinned by a concern to develop in professional people a greater awareness of self and others within the group and to facilitate the capacity to deal creatively with obstacles that arise in teams and organisations. Individual consultations or team interventions, mediation and coaching can be enormously helpful.

My background is as a Training Group Analyst, Psychotherapist and Supervisor and I have supervised at the Institute of Group Analysis on a course for professionals in ‘Reflective Practice for Organisations’. I have worked on employee-assistance programmes, advised at a Drug and Alcohol Service, the NHS, the Royal Free Hospital and at the London Underground.

Individual commitment to a group effort, that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.
