Professional Experience: Twenty years working within statutory and NGO services in both the UK and NZ. I have worked in a number of locum roles within child protection and with children with disabilities. I have managed a community based social service responsible for supervising staff, volunteers and both social work and counselling students.
Supervision Interests/Approaches/Type:
My supervision approach is based on strength based relational practice and acknowledges the inherent value, opportunities and challenges/risks of working within human services.
I believe self care, and professional development are essential aspects of social work practice as are the opportunities to reflect, enquire and make changes.
My approach encompasses appreciative enquiry, motivational interviewing and solution focused. I believe supervision is a doorway to possibilities, action and hope. It requires integrity, curiosity, clarity, openness from both the supervisor and supervisee.
I offer sessions with individuals and within group/peer supervision.
I appreciate working within cross cultural and multidisciplinary contexts.
I have a personal experience of neurodiversity so believe I can offer insight into this in a professional/work context
