I use ANZASW Practice Standards and the Code of Ethics to anchor and inform discussions. I provide Individual Supervision.
As a Christian and a Supervisor, I can offer the incorporation of faith into the Supervision session if desired by the Supervisee. How this looks can be discussed during our first session. This is optional» Read more
