Read what others have said about Social Work Supervision with David:
“In a relaxed and yet very professional manner David has created an open platform for learning and problem-solving in my social work supervision sessions. David is an encouraging supervisor and will actively find strength areas to reinforce my practice, which I find is always a valuable part of the process (we all need to know we are doing a good job every now and again!). David will actively share his own personal knowledge and almost always has a resource or two to send my way on the topic at hand. Supervision with David has helped me to continue to develop my fifteen years of social work practice and counselling skills, and I highly recommend David’s supervision services.”
“I was fortunate to receive a period of Clinical Social Work Supervision from David for several years. He has an enormous amount of knowledge and skill base particularly in the areas of child and adolescent mental health and with the use of therapeutic modalities such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. David generously shares this knowledge with his supervises, and I always found him very approachable, genuine and that he was committed to providing a safe space for me to reflect in.”
Professional Social Work Supervision is best defined as: “… a forum for reflection and learning. … an interactive dialogue between at least two people, one of whom is a supervisor. This dialogue shapes a process of review, reflection, critique and replenishment for professional practitioners. Supervision is a professional activity in which practitioners are engaged throughout the duration of their careers regardless of experience or qualification. The participants are accountable to professional standards and defined competencies and to organisational policy and procedures. “
