Hello, and welcome to DSRA!
I'm Fiona, APD and Director of The Mindful Dietitian.
I am passionate about supervision, having had both the experience of NOT being supervised in my early years as a Dietitian then contrasting it against how it feels to be in a highly supportive supervision partnership. I bring years of experience in Eating Disorders, Weight Inclusive Care and Sports Nutrition and bring a commitment to high quality reflective practice to my work as a supervisor. I have done a number of my own trainings in supervisory practice over a number of years, and have a ongoing commitment to my own growth as a person, and in my Supervision work.
I provide 1:1, Group and Supervision of Supervision (SOS) services, and open up new groups towards the end of each year.
I am a Yoga Teacher, mindfulness devotee and nervous system nerd, all of which I find incredibly useful to bring to supervision. A big part of my own personal and Dietetic practice is centered around Trauma-Informed care which has completely revolutionised my own practice. My primary counselling modalities are ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and MI (Motivational Interviewing), both of which I find so useful in my own practice as well as supervision.
My current work-related focus points are supervision, education and training of Dietitians – both students and graduates – and consultancy to organisations. As someone with a serious training and book-buying problem (seriously!) I am an eternally curious learner, the spirit of which I bring to the supervision partnership.
