I have been offering consultation to a range of health professionals as part of my work in the NHS for several years. This has involved individuals, groups and teams.

Consultation involves the creation of a collaborative space between consultant and consultee. I do not see myself as an expert problem solver, and would not hold any fixed ideas as to what it would be useful for you to talk about. I would facilitate a process in which you could explore whatever seemed salient to you. In my experience, themes that emerge in systemic consultation include value systems, multiple perspectives, use of power, relationships, ethics and the wider organisational context.

Consultation is not supervision; we would not be in a hierarchical relationship, and the responsibility for the content of the conversations, and any action emerging from them, would remain with you.
