Continually building on my professional skills


Alongside my passion, I take my professional development seriously.  It’s important, and a requirement as a member of professional bodies, for all mental health social workers/counsellors to maintain their professional development through supervision and training.  This ensures to keep their practice ethical and in-check and to remain abreast with the current research and new practices. Therefore, to remain ethical and professional, I have a supervisor who I see regularly and also continue to undertake workshops and training in specialist areas such as mental health and trauma, to continue integrating some of these practices into my own.
