A Brief Introduction
As a qualified social worker, I have the skills to provide a range of services to my clients. I am committed to ongoing professional development to ensure that I am always up-to-date with the latest research and practices in my field.
How I got here and the skills I've learned along the way....
With over 20 years of experience in various fields, I have dedicated approximately 8 years to Private Practice, where I have been deeply involved in therapeutic interventions to achieve the best possible outcomes for my clients.
Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working within multiple systems, including Mental Health, Health Care, Family Court, and Child Protections, both in the public and private sectors.
Currently, one of my main focuses as an Early Intervention childhood professional revolves around Attachment. I have undergone extensive training in this area, enabling me to develop a profound understanding of the importance of Attachment in people's lives.
During my time as a Family Consultant in the Family Court, I gained valuable insights into prioritizing the "best interest of the child."
This experience allowed me to maintain a strong focus on the well-being and individual voices of the children within the system.
Moreover, my work in palliative care and rehabilitation wards provided me with invaluable knowledge and skills in handling grief and loss, which I now utilize to offer therapeutic support to individuals and their families.
In my pursuit of growth and expertise, I have also trained in Family Therapy, further enhancing my ability to work effectively with individuals, adults, children, and families. My goal is to facilitate meaningful connections and foster healthier relationships in their lives.
To achieve the best results for my clients, I believe in evidence-based therapeutic intervention. I collaborate closely with each individual, addressing their specific issues at a pace that feels comfortable for them. My ultimate aim is to help them embrace and become the best version of themselves.
I enjoy working with my clients to assist them in achieving successful phases of their life by helping them reach their full potential.
Thank you for visiting my page. I look forward to working together and creating positive changes in your life.
