Services for Professionals
Wendy offers Clinical Supervision, Training and Consulting services to professionals and organisations.
The next webinar, "Supporting People who are Grieving: Theories and Techniques", is on Wednesday, 4 November at 6:30pm AEDT. This is hosted by the Australian Psychological Society (APS), in partnership with Sydney Grief Counselling Services.
I offer individual and group Clinical Supervision to Social Workers, Psychologists, Counsellors, and Health Care Professionals 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 NSW Police, NSW Ambulance, and the Australian Psychological Society. This includes training on supporting people following crisis and death, and how to look after ourselves in the aftermath of these events.
Contact me to discuss your training, facilitation or public speaking needs.
An Introduction to Theories and Techniques for Supporting People
who are Grieving
Wed, 23 June 2021 at 1.00pm - 3.00pm (AEST)
Do you work with people experiencing grief following a bereavement?
Do you want to learn strategies and skills to confidently support someone who is grieving?
In this live webinar I'm partnering with another specialist grief counsellor, Nathan MacArthur from Sydney Grief Counselling, to share some of the knowledge and skills we have gained from supporting thousands of people following a death. Between us, we have over 30 years of experience in grief and bereavement counselling.
In this 2 hour session we will discuss:
the impacts of grief (physical, cognitive, emotional, social, spiritual)
using theories of grief in practice
assessing and responding to needs and risks
creative ways to support someone who is grieving
counselling strategies for working with powerful emotions (e.g. guilt and anger)
self-care in the context of working with death, dying and grief
There will be a live question and answer session.
This session is suitable for:
counsellors, social workers, psychologists, death doulas, nurses, doctors, chaplains, volunteers, mental health and allied health professionals who want to build their confidence in understanding and responding to people experiencing grief following a bereavement.
People who attended previous sessions said:
"An extremely useful session. I am a clinical nurse educator and found it rewarding to have a refresher of knowledge and theory, and think about the bigger picture of the current world health situation and its impact on the process of grief and bereavement."
"Inspiring and very beautiful - thank you - superlative quality."
"Both presenters were clear, organized and informative. I will definitely be tuning in again for your sessions."
"Presenters both had a beautiful natural style, paced information well."
