Dalice Pinnell

My approach is based on Margaret Morrel’s Reflective and Developmental approach.
Key areas for me are mental wellbeing, stress management, self care and prevention of burnout based on lived experience and my work in health. I also offer support with systems and pathways for use general practice if desired.
I encourage regular review of ethics, standards and continued professional development. I often use a strength and task centred base and encourage goal setting, planning and vision.
I am keen to empower social workers to thrive passionately and safely.
