About me

I am friendly, empathetic and passionate about working in the mental health lived experience workforce. I have a deep personal motivation to provide the support, time and space for those needing consumer or peer work force perspective supervision. I understand the need for time that is safe, confidential but most importantly is there for you to stay motivated and progress in your career.

My experience

Previous roles for Women With Disabilities Victoria included mentoring for women in rural and regional employment, support and service referral for individuals post-suicide attempt/suicide ideation and general mentoring for peer support workers in the mental health peer workforce.

My approach to supervision

My approach to supervision will be guided by the supervisee's immediate and longer term needs - as identified together. I adapt the supervision session according to the conversation around role clarity; reflection on what's going well and what's not so good; how the worker sees themselves in their role; systemic issues and discussion around responses to these. I am to help the supervisee learn and grow in a way that incorporates their own recovery, experiences and future goals.
