Helping you think about your work in new ways

Head of Mulberry Bush Consulting

Sarah Paget

Mulberry Bush Consulting was established after listening to colleagues and partners in the sector. We help leaders and organisations that work with all those made vulnerable by childhood trauma. We work across all sectors within the field, nationally and internationally.

If you are looking to develop your organisation and staff, tackle a specific problem or looking for support in your role, we can help you find your way.

Mulberry Bush Consulting

What We Do

We build a relationship with you and your organisation, encourage you to be curious, ask questions, and consider ideas to help you think in new ways and overcome any challenges that you might be facing.

Our work takes a systemic approach, underpinned by The Mulberry Bush core principles of psychodynamic thinking, collaborative working and reflective practice. Learn more about this here.

Our Approach

We’ll work alongside you to learn more about what brings you to us.

Together, we’ll reflect on your current situation and explore the challeges that you’re facing and any changes or developments that you’d like to make.

We’ll look below the surface at potentially unconscious issues which could  be impacting on you and your work.

Some of the ways in which we might do this include:

Facilitating safe spaces for thinking about your work

Consultation and ongoing support to those in leadership roles to approach organisational and cultural change

Leadership coaching or mentoring to develop your organisation’s team cultures and systems

Sharing our expert knowledge and experience to help you apply the principles of Therapeutic Communities and Relational Practice to your organisation.

Creating networks that link you with others so that you can share learning and experience.

Providing opportunities to learn about consultancy and taking a consultancy stance in your own working environment.
