I've enjoyed providing supervision to mental health professionals including Social Workers, Counsellors and students for over 15 years. As well as supervising mental health workers, I also have the pleasure of working at a local university, supervising undergraduate post graduate counselling students.
My employment experience has included working across many roles and at senior leadership and management levels within government, not for profit and private organisations. I have been involved in developing and delivering supervision programs, policies and training to state and national teams. This varied experience has provided me with a broad understanding of mental health and social work practice across many areas.
I am currently working in private practice as an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker where I see children and adults. While I work with clients presenting with a range of issues, I am particularly interested in working with trauma, anxiety and addictions. I use a range of counselling approaches including
Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction approach.
I am a member of the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) and the Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing Association of Australia (EMDRAA)
