Professional Experience: I’m an experienced Clinical Social Worker offering supervision to social workers and others working in the social services sector.

My own practice experience has been in the NGO sector in community and residential adolescent and adult mental health services. More recently I have been working in the education sector promoting wellbeing in schools for children, parents and staff.

Supervision Interests/Approaches/Type:
In supervision I encourage reflective practice to explore ethical, boundary and practice issues whether the supervisee is young in their career or well established.
Choosing a new supervisor can be difficult, I’m happy to meet and discuss what supervision might look like over a coffee with no obligation to continue.
