My passion is in working with Managers, assisting them to navigate the challenge of combining their Social work Ethics and Values, with the often contrary demands of Budgets, volumes, reports, KPI’s, Organisational Needs and Funder requirements.

I do find that for managers, both approaches require longer sessions – and prefer to offer 90 min sessions if possible as this ensures supervision is different from the normal time pressured daily environment.» Read more
