I am a Credentialed Mental Health Nurse (CMHN), Credentialed Eating Disorder Clinician (CEDC) and Clinical Supervisor. I am passionate about the provision of Clinical Supervision that empowers clinicians to reflect on their practice, reduce burn out and results in the provision of quality clinical care and treatment to mental health consumers. I am interested in promotion of clinical supervision and the role it plays in prolonging mental health clinicians within the sector
