I am passionate about the empowering impact of effective social work practice at all levels, from the micro-skills of counselling and therapeutic intervention through to the macro-levels of policy. I am interested in the relationship between these different levels of practice and find that I am skilled at identifying the relationships between individuals, groups, contexts, systems and culture and the influence these have on each other. I have an appreciative inquiry approach to my supervision practice, looking at what is working well and building on that, as well as helping people to identify where they would like additional supports or could benefit from making stronger connections to theories, resources or networks. Navigating personal and professional identity as well as supporting safe and effective practice would be a focus of our time together.
I may have some low-cost vacancies for those working in the voluntary sector or on very low wages in the community sector. Please enquire.
I work with supervisees in linking theory to practice, working through ethical dilemmas, managing work/life balance, career progression and employment issues.
