I have previously engaged Deanne twice to provide remote supervision where I have held positions as a sole social worker. At that time I was working in remote and isolated communities including Far North Queensland and later, the Torres Strait. This was frequently challenging work responding to a breadth of social and emotional wellbeing issues confronting individuals, families and communities with large Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations. Deanne’s supervision style lent itself well to my professional circumstances. Her intelligent questions, informed by a narrative therapy approach, allowed me to be expert about my own work. This strengthened my confidence as a practioner and lessened feelings of professional isolation. Holding the supervision by phone was no impediment to the quality of the supervision. I have always respected Deanne’s considerable experience and knowledge particularly in child protection, sexual assault and legal processes. As a supervisor I found Deanne to be warm, approachable and respectful. Highly recommended.
