I am committed to creating a safe and contained supervision space, that provides an opportunity for you to critically reflect on practice, and at times consider the overlap with your personal life and experiences. The supervisory space can accommodate many issues; complex case work, professional development, team and colleague challenges, traumatic experience, personal crisis, professional goals, management and leadership, ethical questions, critical decision-making.
I have kept one foot in the practice world and another in the academic world, and I am keen to work with you on your professional and personal development goals. Working with children and families is tough work and I am interested in how we sustain high levels of practice, maintain wellbeing and have fun along the way.
I have been influenced by narrative therapy, strengths based practice, psychodynamic approaches and critical reflection. Core values for me are kindness, honesty and respect.
I believe that professional supervision, like social work, should be responsive, perceptive, creative, purposeful and empowering. I offer a safe space to reflect on your practice context, your professional practice, your own wellbeing and how these weave together. I am committed to helping you discover what works in your practice and to enhancing this in whatever way possible – connecting you to yourself through reflection and helping you connect you to others through thoughtful action. I can support your growth as a practitioner through ongoing learning, resourcing, and support. I have worked in a wide range of roles and settings and bring this diversity of experience to supporting you in your role. I may have some low-cost places available for those working in the voluntary sector as I believe that good supervision should be accessible to everyone» Read more

I believe that professional supervision provides an opportunity to slow down the rush of a busy career, just long enough, so that we can celebrate the achievements of our practice, acknowledge the depths of our learned knowledge and identify our areas for growth. Professional supervision will assist in your transformational development at a pace that you are comfortable with in order that you achieve the most from your professional supervision.
