I believe that professional supervision, like social work, should be responsive, perceptive, creative, purposeful and empowering. I offer a safe space to reflect on your practice context, your professional practice, your own wellbeing and how these weave together. I am committed to helping you discover what works in your practice and to enhancing this in whatever way possible – connecting you to yourself through reflection and helping you connect you to others through thoughtful action. I can support your growth as a practitioner through ongoing learning, resourcing, and support. I have worked in a wide range of roles and settings and bring this diversity of experience to supporting you in your role. I may have some low-cost places available for those working in the voluntary sector as I believe that good supervision should be accessible to everyone» Read more
