Professional and pastoral supervision

My Approach to Supervision
I view supervision as

  • an opportunity to take “time out” for intentional reflection on the joys and challenges of one’s work
  • in a supportive environment which offers an outside perspective
  • to enhance personal and professional growth.

 I consider a person’s life experience to be a great resource that can enrich their work. My own life experience includes working as a hospital and aged care chaplain in a variety of settings, living and working in Asia and the Middle East, raising a family and involvement in my local church.

WHO –  Case workers, ministers, chaplains and other professionals who have a people focused role can benefit from Supervision.

WHAT– Challenging work situations, professional identity and boundaries, ethical practice, life and work balance, self care strategies and offloading of distressing incidents are examples of some of the issues that can be brought to Supervision.

WHEN  – A one hour Supervision session usually occurs every 4 to 6 weeks. I am available Tuesday to Friday.

WHERE – Quakers Hill, in north western Sydney.

-Supervision by Zoom or phone is also an option for those who live outside of Sydney.

Inquiries welcome  – contact me to get a feel for whether you think we could work together in Supervision.
