I began tertiary study as an adult student and believe that education is a life long process. Professional supervision is a site of learning led by the supervisee and supported by the supervisor. My approach to work and life is about creating solutions rather than looking at the obstacles or barriers that often hinder the possibilities for action or change. My aim is to make supervision a fun, enjoyable, honest yet challenging experience where practitioners have the opportunity to reflect on their practice and grow and develop both personally and professionally I support making connections between theory and practice, raising critical consciousness, incorporate adult learning principles and a sociological perspective when considering practice and interventions. I have a particular interest in: professional leadership, social workers as managers, anti-oppressive practice, career development, personal & professional wellbeing and ethical decision making.» Read more
