Conversations that create change

Spark describes the creative response of people meeting, talking and thinking together. Chris Powell has been creating those conversations since 1985 as group analyst, supervisor, organisational consultant, psychotherapist, mentor, coach, teacher and trainer.

Chris is based in Leeds, working with individuals, couples, groups and organisations across Yorkshire and nationally. Before setting up his practice in Leeds he was Head of Psychological Therapies at The Retreat in York, and previously worked in the NHS, and in national charities.

Some of his work follows conventional routes – supervising other clinicians, providing psychotherapy in groups and for individuals and couples. Much of it moves outside the consulting room into universities, businesses, cafés, and out onto the hillside. This website describes the range of activities, help and support Chris offers. Please contact him to discuss how he could be of help to you or your organisation.

This site also gives information about our consulting rooms in Leeds, available for hire by psychotherapists, counsellors, other healthcare practitioners, coaches and mentors.

We can help you if you need:

  • Group Analysis
  • Psychotherapy
  • Couple Therapy
  • Counselling
  • Supervision
  • Coaching
  • Management Mentoring
  • Organisational Consultancy
  • Training
  • Facilitation

All these provide experiences and conversations that change people, improve relationships and develop organisations.
