Sandi is the founding company director and Principal Facilitator at Phoenix Support. Her framework, The Phoenix Cups, have revolutionised how staff not only work with children’s behaviour, but how teams view each other’s behaviour. The approach provides a framework of how to understand and respond positively to differences and conflict. The Phoenix Cups adds a new perspective to understanding each other and learning to work and live in harmony together.
Sandi’s coaching and consultancy style comes from a strengths-based perspective and is informed by a comprehensive understanding of the National Quality Framework and underpinning theory.

These roles range from individualised in-service coaching and mentoring, presenting at conferences, teaching the Diploma of Early Childhood Education, developing written resources, and consulting in the design of software that supports efficient and effective curriculum planning and service operations.
