I am an accredited clinical supervisor registered with PACFA and provide individual and group supervision to mental health professionals.
Supervision of counselling and psychotherapy practice is widely promoted as an essential aspect of ethical and effective therapy and continuing professional development. It provides an opportunity to develop and maintain a practitioner’s competent professional functioning and well-being while safeguarding client care.
Stress, burnout, compassion fatigue and vicarious traumatisation are just some of the possible consequences of working in the helping profession. It is an ethical obligation, not just a personal need, to attend to self-care so that we can remain physically and psychologically healthy and meet the demands of our jobs. One of my tasks as a supervisor is to support practitioners to care for themselves.
In addition to clinical supervision, I offer consultation to agencies working with people from refugee backgrounds and trauma survivors. My past experiences include providing support to the Blue Mountains Refugee Support Group (BMRSG), the Settlement Services International (SSI), artists at Sydney Biennale, and theatre assemble Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe.
