What is it like to be in a room with me as a supervisor?
I am a gentle and flexible supervisor that has a good understanding of the demands within the clinical role. I aim to provide guidance, support and mentorship for all clinical staff who engage in supervision. I value the ongoing process of learning and critical thinking. I strive to assist supervisees in achieving their professional goals. I am an honest and transparent person who strives to provide helpful, constructive feedback. I welcome an open and collaborative space where problem solving and processing can occur.
I have over 23 years of experience in both the public and private fields, particularly, mental health services. I provide emotional and strategic support to help my supervisees to navigate difficult cases or workplace issues. I strive to enhance supervisees skill sets, offering this through learning, processing, and reflective practice. I value autonomy and growth, guiding the supervisee to make independent decisions, foster professional growth and build confidence in the supervisee’s ability. I understand the importance of advocacy, social justice and equity. I strive to assist supervisees in developing these skills, promoting the wellbeing and rights of clients. I aim to be a role model for new clinical staff in ethical decision-making, ensuring supervisees have the appropriate knowledge, skills and understanding within their respective roles.
