Hi, my name is Una. I am a Brisbane based Social Worker and mental health practitioner with 25 years of experience. I provide counselling with Medicare rebates and professional clinical supervision. I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and Accredited member of the Australian Association of Social Workers. I am a Registered NDIS service provider of Therapeutic supports.
After obtaining my Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Queensland in 1994, I went on to explore opportunities to practice social work in different health settings in Brisbane, around Australia and the world. These include mental health crisis response in Canberra, paediatrics in Alice Springs and medical hospital social work in London. Brisbane based since 2001, I went on to specialise in public community mental health service provision to adults with serious and complex mental health needs, including Bi Polar Affective Disorder, Post Natal Depression and Psychosis and those who struggle with self-harm and suicidal urges.
