I am particularly interested in supporting new graduates embarking on their social work careers through supervision which focuses on reflexive practice (reflecting on practice to engage in continuous learning), and translating all that theory you’ve learned at uni into practice!
My approach to supervision is collaborative and I understand how important it is to find the right ‘fit’ in supervision. I would welcome you to contact me to book in a free initial meeting to see if my style of supervision is a good ‘fit’ for you.
I use a holistic supervision process which incorporates a mind, body, spirit approach to give your work and life balance. I apply a combination of supervision techniques and life coaching principles, which ensure that you care for yourself first, manage stress levels, overcome procrastination and let go of limiting beliefs.
