With over 15 years of experience of supervising social work and community development practitioners and students, Gretchen can provide a professional supervision service to suit you.
Supervision is a vitally important element of ongoing learning and development for human service practitioners. No matter how experienced we become, it is great to have the time and space for reflection and development of the work we do – why we do it – how we do it – and how we might do it even better.
Gretchen’s approach to supervision involves getting to know you and your learning needs, and together creating a plan to grow your skills and knowledge. Supervision can take place at a location of your choice, as often as needed.
What Gretchen’s clients are saying about her supervision
I just want to write and thank you for offering to provide me with such positive but clarifying supervision in my time of need. As a new manager in a large NT workplace and having recently shifted to Darwin I knew very few people and hardly anyone at my level to bounce ideas off.I feel very thankful I was able to meet with you. I enjoyed your calm caring personality and how prepared you were with information, written and verbal to help me proceed to the next stage, encouraging me to get back on the path forward and thus reducing my stress levels. I feel I made the best decisions for me at the time which without your guidance may not have happened.

Gretchen’s knowledge about community development was the reason I had sought social worker supervision from her. I was a new team leader of a diverse community development team and wanted to convince myself I had impeccable academic/theory credentials. Gretchen gave me so much more. A model of professional supervision, a method of reflecting on CD work, and the confidence to challenge, evolve and back my practice, and grow a successful CD program
