Professional Supervision for Social Workers and Counsellors
My name is Leigh and I can offer you Professional Supervision.
As an experienced Senior Social Worker with over 25+ years working and studying in the area of Human, Social and Community Services since 1992, I now offer Professional Supervision for those like minded professionals seeking supoort.
Having operated in both Government and Not-For-profit sector (Cairns, Far North Queensland and Brisbane), I have consolidated my advanced Social Sciences practice and have developed a specific strengths-based, client-focused professional private practice capacity along with my own intervention model.
I have also found my way through hardship, adversity and circuitous routes that have disrupted life and career, I know how tough it is to support others when our own lives are a bit messy!
Known for my highly approachable manner, I have adapted my communication and therapy style to best suit the individual.
This flexible approach lends itself to creating a comfortable and confidential space to unload even the most sensitive of experiences or information to explore concerns, periods of adversity and/or fears as you develop your own practice.
The purpose of the supervision process is to provide a safe, supportive opportunity for individuals to engage in critical reflection in order to raise issues, explore problems, and discover new ways of handling both the situation and oneself.
A critical aspect of supervision lies in its potential to educate and illuminate; I help you find those gold nuggets in the mud.
My supervisory practice is both intuitive and structured and centred around your needs.
I do insist that all supervisees develop awareness into their own motives, areas of bias, fears and past experiences to be able to establish appropriate boundaries and be able to deliver quality services to others.
I also highly encourage self care for longevity sake!
I ultimately tailor each session to the individual depending on your level of experience and what you seek to gain from the professional supervision sessions.
Supervision can lead us into 4 areas of exploration:
