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’s 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, gain clarity, 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.
