About my practice

Clinical Supervision is an essential safe space for the learning and personal growth of Dietitians in todays increasingly complex working environments. I work with with supervisees living all over Australia, in urban, regional and rural areas and it is incredible to see the common threads that we all share in the work we do – the challenges, the highs and the lows.

It is such a privelege to work with Dietitians who want to be the best they can be with their clients and in the work they do. Supervision is a space in which the synergy between supervisor and supervisee can lead to an enriching, supportive, long term relationship in which the supervisee (and often the supervisor!) can grow and learn for the benefit of their clients, themsleves, those close to them and the wider community.

As a supervisor, I bring a wealth of experience across many clinical areas and service management across public and private health. In my own Private Practice, I now work mainly in Paediatrics, with particular expertise in complex feeding including feeding SOS and Responsive Feeding Therapy, ARFID, eating disorders and enteral nutrition. I also see a small number of adult Eating Disorders clients.

As a Supervisor I have completed formal training in the provision Clinical Supervision. I receive fortnightly clinical supervision for my own clinical work in Private Practice as well as supervision for my role as Supervisor.
