About this item

Professional Supervision is a core component of maintaining professional practice and accreditation for many professions particularly in the community and human services sector. Professions such as Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Teachers, Nurses, Midwives, Doctors, Counsellors and Psychologists are encouraged to access regular professional supervision as part of maintaining professional standards in their role; engage self care; promote ongoing growth and development; and meet organisational requirements.

She has developed a systematic framework that ensures supervision remains effective and sustainable over time. As part of the supervision platform and system, Tracey has developed a range of unique resources, tools and documents for beginning supervisory practitioners to assist them to develop the necessary skills to feel confident and supported in their new role.
