Promoting a safe, supportive and challenging environment to explore and develop your professional practice. I am passionate about professional and personal development, professional boundaries and self care. Incorporating Reflective practice, systemic approach, solution focused and strength based models of practice.
I enjoy working alongside students and new practitioners in support of integrating social work theory with practice and developing a culturally, ethically safe practise.
My traditions, values and beliefs are moulded through the connection to the land and nature; this connection has given me a sense of belonging and spiritual identity. I enjoy family, friends, pets and the great outdoors.
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. Professional supervision is a supportive, safe and protected space where you are at the centre of the conversation.» Read more
Social work is a wonderful, and at times, challenging profession. From my experience I know that good support is essential to the success or failure of the work we do.
My passion is to support people like you, who are giving their all to help others. I know the value of a safe, confidential space, for someone to be with you in the hardest moments – the very thing we are often providing for those we work with. Over the years I have supervised people in various roles from family violence, care and protection, through to community-based and specialised social work. My supervision supports people to provide the best service to those in need, whilst also developing themselves both personally and professionally, and maintaining overall wellbeing.
Relationship is key in supervision, so it is important to find the right fit. I work from a relational and strengths-based approach, and provide a reflective space where you can unpack difficult cases, be challenged, explore team dynamics, critically reflect and learn from past successes and challenges, and be supported in your journey as you help others. If this is the type of support you’re after, give me a call on 020 401 06304.
