Wilma's Social Workshops - Building skills to support families

Professional Supervision

Wilma is available for professional individual and group supervision for:

  • Professionals working with children, adolescents and their families
  • Foster carers and therapeutic group home carers
  • For individuals or organisations seeking an experienced supervisor

As a supervisor I like to promote reflective practice over focus on solutions. Of course this can be adapted to your supervision needs and your level of experience. The use of sand tray during supervision is an option. I am a capable communicator, helping to keep you on track of your supervision questions during the session, as well as asking reflective questions relating to best practice, professional boundaries and self-care.

I have a special interest in attachment, trauma-informed practice, interventions from play & creative therapies, body based relaxation and mindfulness practice. I strongly believe in the importance of support for parents, including the need for social-economical support, so they can be the best parent they can be. I will always speak up for the rights and needs of children and young people.

I am an accredited social worker with almost 25 years’ experience. For the past 12 years I have worked with children, youth and their families in areas of trauma and neglect, sexual abuse, sexual inappropriate behaviours, family separation and domestic violence. I have worked alongside child protection, foster carers and family group homes. I have a Voc Grad Certificate in Developmental Trauma, have trained in play therapy and attachment based interventions. I am a trained supervisor and have provided both individual and group supervision within my past work place. I have facilitated practical workshops related to working with children & families for hundreds of participants.
