Therapy and Supervision
Supervisor, Clinical Social Worker. SWRB, ANZASW
B.Theo., Master (Applied) SW
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.
I work therapeutically with adolescents (16 years and up) and adults. 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. More recently I have been working in the education sector promoting wellbeing in schools for children, parents and staff.
Choosing a new supervisor can be difficult, I’m happy to meet and discuss what supervision might look like over a coffee with no obligation to continue.
