purpose

many of us - individuals and organisations - struggle to achieve what we are capable of. When we are stuck in a story that is too small for us, transformation may be our only option. Yet how do we transform?

Meus helps leaders, teams and whole enterprises to understand what transformation means for them and how to realise it. We are creative catalysts and ‘guides’ who bring extensive expertise and experience of change to the transformation of strategies, relationships and results.

We enable transformation through the application of leading-edge thinking and our own innovative experiential practices (including film facilitation, storytelling, constellations and more). Each solution we provide is co-created with our clients, and is therefore uniquely tailored to their specific needs.

Ultimately, our work is all about people. Creating connection, belonging and aliveness is key to the outcomes we achieve for our clients.

credo

our values of creativity, collaboration and compassion inform all that we do, and stand out as hallmarks of our approach. Most of all, we work with integrity.

Five principles underpin everything that we do:

  1. Working systemically. Transformation is never individual, but collective. We identify the unseen connections and hidden dynamics that impede or enhance personal and project success.
  2. Begin it now! Transformation is a process of creating 'clumsy solutions' for current problems - not about designing perfect plans for future implementation.
  3. Working with ‘what is’. Transformation cannot begin until we acknowledge where we are and the ‘truth’ of our situation.
  4. Choosing growth over fear. Transformation requires that we each confront what holds us back.
  5. Leadership is not a special kind of person, but a special kind of action. Transformation liberates each person’s potential to act courageously in the face of uncertainty.

approach

we are creative catalysts who draw on leading-edge systemic approaches to transformation. We pioneer the use of film as an integral part of how we design & deliver experiences in our increasingly virtual, digital age.

Nobody works in the way that we do! We are not a production company - we are facilitators, coaches and consultants who understand the power of 'moving images' to bridge the space between leadership, change and communication.

The films that we create are more than simple records of breakthrough – they explore ‘living moments’ that connect us more fully to ourselves and to one another. Our films are not bolt-ons to our work, they make it possible to share these moments more widely, creating a transformative power in and through your organisation.

workshops

systemic learning & development to spark your personal & organisational transformation

In both online and in-person settings, our open-access learning and development workshops are experiential, practical and participative.

We are leading exponents of Systemic Constellations, as well as Organisational Gestalt, and our workshops reflect this. Our workshops equip professionals from organisations, as well as independent coaches and consultants, with new tools, techniques, approaches and fresh perspectives that make a tangible difference to their personal practice, teams and businesses.

All workshops comprise a mixture of expert inputs, group discussions and practice sessions in pairs, triads and small groups. Within this structure we encourage participants to bring their own 'live' issues and real case studies for exploration and insight.

Our workshops run in locations across the UK and Europe - as well as online - and are regularly updated. Click on the links below to see our current workshops and book your place.

Pete Thompson

Film-maker

I have a background in social care and then worked as a BBC journalist, which gave me great storytelling skills which I use now as a cameraman, editor and film-maker. I’m deeply interested in humanising business and making films about ‘the eth word’ - ethics, values and the things we most care about as people.

Mike Meaney

Educator

I help build awareness, both personal and collective, of how we communicate with one another, how things fall apart and how we can learn to listen, talk and act more powerfully together for the common good. My skills as a musician and photographer greatly influence the ways in which I engage with others - facilitator, organisational development consultant and integrative psychotherapist.

Andrew Hassenruck

Editor

As a former BBC Editor I have worked on broadcast documentaries, animations and dramas for over 30 years. I love the variety of my work and see editing as a collaborative process, working with crews to craft the director’s vision in to the best programme possible. I really enjoy making films that dissolve the space between us and reveal people’s inner, authentic light.

Christine Stevens PhD

Artist

I combine my work as an artist and psychotherapist on projects that tackle complex social issues and effect community transformation. As a Gestalt psychotherapist I help individuals, couples and groups explore what is going on in their lives; I am the editor of The British Gestalt Journal and an international psychotherapy trainer to doctoral level. As an artist, I work in clay and run workshops for personal and professional development from my studio.
