Services for Professionals
Wendy offers Clinical Supervision, Training and Consulting services.
I offer individual and group Clinical Supervision to Social Workers, Psychologists, Counsellors, Doctors, Health Care Professionals, and Counselling Students in person, via telephone, or video-conference.
Clinical Supervision is our dedicated space to reflect upon your professional work, and all its impacts and challenges. It's here we can discuss caseload and clinical issues, staff interpersonal issues, ethical dilemmas, as well as support your ongoing learning and development.
As a Social Worker, I have worked extensively in health and community settings in Australia and overseas. I know firsthand the importance of having a safe and structured environment to reflectively examine our work, and to manage its impact on our profesional and personal lives.
I am a passionate advocate for open and honest conversations about death and dying.
I promote discussions between individuals and communities about how we die, about the impact of loss, and how an awareness of our mortality may help us find greater purpose and meaning in our lives.
I provide training and consultation to public and private sector organisations, including Australian Federal Police, NSW Police, NSW Ambulance, Australian Psychological Society and The Law Society of NSW. This includes training on supporting people following crisis and a death, and how to look after ourselves in the aftermath of these events.
Contact me to discuss your training, facilitation or public speaking needs.

For this webinar I've partnering with another specialist grief counsellor, Nathan MacArthur from Sydney Grief Counselling, to share the knowledge and skills we have gained from supporting thousands of people following a death.
