I am passionate about new graduates being supported to be successful in their new profession.  Supporting supervisees to reflect on their practice in a safe environment.  A space that allows you to incorporate theory into practice and build your own practice framework.  Incorporating ethical decision making and risk management, safe practice and self care.
Advocating for the rights of those in our communities who are marginalised and often not heard.  Developing skills enabling social workers to be able to communicate with people who may not be able to communicate verbally.

I began tertiary study as an adult student and believe that education is a life long process. Professional supervision is a site of learning led by the supervisee and supported by the supervisor. My approach to work and life is about creating solutions rather than looking at the obstacles or barriers that often hinder the possibilities for action or change. My aim is to make supervision a fun, enjoyable, honest yet challenging experience where practitioners have the opportunity to reflect on their practice and grow and develop both personally and professionally I support making connections between theory and practice, raising critical consciousness, incorporate adult learning principles and a sociological perspective when considering practice and interventions. I have a particular interest in: professional leadership, social workers as managers, anti-oppressive practice, career development, personal & professional wellbeing and ethical decision making.

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.

The primary theories and models that I work from are Reflective practice, Strengths based, Client centered and Narrative theory.
This I believe assists the Social Worker to be empowered and confident in their practice with clients and in turn provide safe and effective delivery of service to clients. This within the boundaries and policy guidelines of the agencies they work within. Alongside this is the supporting/facilitating the balance or work and personal life.
