Professional Carer Supervision.
Jodie has extensive experience working with foster and kinship carers providing them with support, education and guidance.
She strongly believes that foster and kinship carers are a crucial part of the child protection and out of home care systems. Carers who also work in these systems have very unique roles. They are working and living with trauma which can be exhausting without adequate support. She provides supervision sessions to help support carers to continue to be the best version of themselves in their caring role and in their work role.
In the Professional Carer supervision sessions Jodie can provide:
- a space for cares to debrief,
- emotional support
- an opportunity to talk through the realities of foster/kinship care and how that might fit with your individual values, expectations and hopes as a carer.
These sessions can be accessed on an 'as needed' or a regular basis eg monthly. Session fee is $190 plus GST.
