    Therapy & Supervision

    Supervisor, Clinical Social Worker , and Trainer SWRB, ANZASW

    BSW, Cert. in Supervision.

    I'm a Registered Social Worker and my current practise includes both talking therapy with adolescents and adults, as well as professional supervision.

     

    Supervision

    Supervising professionals working in social services and health contexts, I highly value facilitating a space to hypothesise 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 times providing guidance and support under pressure.

     

    Therapy

    I work therapeutically with individuals aged 16+ to enhance wellbeing and negotiate the storms of life.

    Enhancing one's self confidence and esteem, learning skills to manage stress and discomfort, alongside the development of a personal vision for life is at the heart of my approach.
