    Supervisor, Clinical Social Worker. SWRB, ANZASW, Centre for Lacanian Analysis (CLA)

    B.Theo., Master (Applied) SW, PG Cert.. Interpersonal Psychotherapy

    I’m an experienced Registered, Clinical Social Worker offering both Talking Therapies and professional supervision to social workers and others working in the social services sector


    Currently I don't have any places available for therapy or supervision. Please be in touch if you would like to be notified when a space becomes available.



    I work therapeutically with adults from any background confidentially and non-judgementally. Often entering therapy and a therapeutic relationship can be a daunting step. My approach to therapy is to offer a safe and supportive environment to openly examine relationships and patterns that may be causing distress and then together establish new skills and patterns.



    In supervision I encourage reflective practice to explore ethical, boundary and practice issues whether the supervisee is young in their career or well established.

    My own practice experience has been in the NGO sector in community and residential adolescent and adult mental health services, working in the education sector promoting wellbeing in schools for children, parents and staff. This work included managing and leading teams while working collaboratively across the NGO and Public sector. Currently I work in Primary Health delievering Brief Intervention Talking Therapy on the days I'm not in private practice.

    Please get in touch to talk further about supervision and if we might be a good fit.
