Supervision had been undervalued in Nursing so I wasn’t aware that I was missing out on anything of great value. Then I moved to the Sunshine Coast and was fortunate to meet and work with Chris Dawber. This gave me the opportunity to witness the high standard of his practice in Consultation Psychiatry, including running reflective practice groups, so when supervision from Chris became possible I jumped at the chance. I haven’t looked back (although Chris does encourage me to reflect every 6 months on where we’ve been and where we’re going with supervision).
Chris brings such an amazing volume of knowledge, experience and a wide range of skills and strategies so that it doesn’t matter the difficulty or the complexity of any situation I find myself in – Chris always seems to know what to say or do to assist me to keep functioning in a challenging role. For that I am deeply indebted.
