|Current Training:||Margaret Morrell’s Reflective Supervision|
|Professional Experience:||Seven years experience in a busy medical centre in east Christchurch working with many cohorts – mostly very complex and often with co-morbidities. Many presentations were post quakes with a need for psychosocial support and housing. I worked alongside a team of nurses and doctors and also very closely with a clinical psychologist to provide often crucial biopsychosocial support. I mentored students and supported other social workers in general practice|
|Supervision Interests/Approaches/Type:||My approach is based on Margaret Morrel’s Reflective and Developmental approach.
Key areas for me are mental wellbeing, stress management, self care and prevention of burnout based on lived experience and my work in health. I also offer support with systems and pathways for use general practice if desired.
I encourage regular review of ethics, standards and continued professional development. I often use a strength and task centred base and encourage goal setting, planning and vision.
I am keen to empower social workers to thrive passionately and safely.
