Professional Supervision

Working with people within current complex, human services continues to provide challenges for helping professionals who must learn to adapt to increasing demands whilst working out how to meet their initial goals and aims without sacrificing their own values. 

I provide regular professional supervision as an experienced, independent social work supervisor who has worked in the fields of child protection, alcohol and drug, family court and foster carer support. I have worked in middle management positions as well as front line. I understand the various tensions and potential conflict areas that helping professionals will experience at some point in their careers and have supported helping professionals in supervision since 2002. Engaging in professional supervision means working together to address alternatives for how you can manage the various demands and challenges you will encounter whilst focussing on your own goals and skills development. Together, we can explore ways for you to sustain yourself in your current and future work roles.

With my experience in establishing my own private practice over more than 20 years, and publishing a book with useful tips and guidance for starting up a private practice I can also provide mentoring if you wish to transition into private initiatives.  I provide a compassionate, conversational and flexible environment to enable supervisees to open up new ideas and insights, increase self-acceptance and self-compassion, and cultivate the ability to set goals to achieve enhanced wellbeing and professional skills.

✺  Adam is the first long term external supervisor I have used.  He provides a calm and reflective space for social work supervision and this makes a useful space for me. He has a wealth of practice and experience. He gently guides the conversation and uses the space to provide good direction or insights when required.  Adam will encourage me at times to consider issues outside my workplace, that impact on my work and how this may be addressed.

Tanya, Social Worker

✾  Adam provided a ‘relationship built on trust, sharing of skills, resources and knowledge, supportive, available, accessible and flexible sessions supervisee led and nurturing to encourage learning and stretching personal limits with confidence’. The benefits to my work role included ‘clear boundary setting, time management, the ability to assess and implement new business practice and improved casework analysis’.

Sandra, Private Practitioner

✱  Adam provided comprehensive direction, support, and guidance that I needed as a new social work manager and supervisor. I felt confident that Adam’s knowledge and experience as both a practitioner and supervisor gave me tools and suggestions that I needed to successfully navigate the supervisory complexities of working within a not-for-profit agency. I would highly recommend Adam as a supervisor for both new and experienced social workers.
