Our Organisational Services

We provide several services to the corporate world. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line. If you are not sure whether we offer what you need, or even quite what it is that would serve you best,  we are always happy to meet to talk it through- the coffee is on us- no obligation.

Personal Consultancy - Not just your average coach!


Blackwood provides Personal Consultancy services to Organisational clients. Helping you create a culture that enables your business to flourish.

  • Combining the disciplines of therapy and coaching, our consultants can work with your company to provide a confidential, discreet and effective service.
  • Wellbeing is sometimes an 'inside job' (therapy), but very often an 'outside job' too (coaching), and we are trained to work in both disciplines should we need to.
  • Our services can be retained, or secured on a demand/supply basis.
  • We offer employees a chance to delve into their psyche as well as improve work performance and manage stress.
  • We work with leaders and executives who organisations feel need something extra than their current EAP offers.
  • Your staff are your greatest asset - we help you by offering them leading edge interventions.
