Alan is an experienced coach, organisational consultant and facilitator who brings a psychoanalytic framework of understanding to organisational development, group process and obstacles to effective team functioning. He loves working with teams.
His passion is working in the moment with the experience of individuals and teams to help them to identify their real issues, their development needs and to address their ‘health’ and effectiveness – especially in situations in which the obstacles to better performance are rooted in conflict or ingrained patterns of behaviour flowing from the unconscious mind of groups.
A graduate of the Tavistock Clinic/University of East London in Psychoanalytic Approaches to Organisational Behaviour, Alan marries a strong theoretical understanding of groups with a lively and engaging facilitative style. His style of coaching has been developed by the 3D team with whom he now works as a team member. He has worked as an internal consultant and facilitator in the Church of England, and as an external consultant and facilitator in a number of UK and European blue chip companies.
