    Supervisor, Clinical Social Worker , and Trainer SWRB, ANZASW

    BSW, Cert. in Supervision.

    I'm a Registered Social Worker with significant experience in the mental health field and hold a certificate in supervision (Human Services). My current practise includes both talking therapy with adults, and professional clinical supervision.



    Supervising professionals working in social services and health contexts, I highly value facilitating a space to analyse and formulate case material without judgement. I view supervision as a vital and rewarding opportunity to learn and grow in our work, as well as at enhancing professional safety and boundaries.



    I work therapeutically with individuals aged 16+ who present with various symptoms and are motivated to explore and understand themselves more deeply.

    I utilise Mentalisation Based Treatment and Psychoanalytic approaches to support one's reflective function and emotional regulation.
