Stephanie Davies, organisational consultant

Stephanie is an experienced trainer, coach and organisational consultant working with clients in the public, voluntary, financial and corporate sectors.

Her interest in how groups and organisations function has led her to studying on the ‘Consultation and the Organisation’ Professional Doctorate at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. The knowledge and experience she has gained through her studies enables her to work in a systems-psychodynamic way to support individuals, groups and organisations to make meaningful and sustainable changes.

Steph initially worked as a lecturer in Psychology and Sociology at a Further Education college where she became interested in the hidden communications of the children and young people she worked with, which in turn led her to focus on working with children who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties.

Stephanie Davies

This interest in human behaviours has led to a diverse career focusing on working with individuals, groups and organisations to understand the emotional impact of their work and relational working on their ability to fulfil their potential. Steph is experienced in designing and delivering training and workshop sessions; team development; coaching; culture change, and leadership and management development. She also has a particular interest in how creativity can be developed within organisations and uses innovative and playful interactions to help those she works with to understand what happens both above and below the surface that impacts organisational outcomes. This is also the focus of her doctoral thesis which is due to be completed in 2020.
