Bachelor of Social Work
Accredited Mental Health Social Worker
Member of the Australian Association of Social Workers
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 for therapeutic counselling.
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.
I wanted to update you on how our workplace is responding to coronavirus. I am committed to the health and wellbeing of all of my clients and taking every precaution to minimise transmission. Hand sanitiser will be available for use in the waiting area and my room and surfaces will be regularly disinfected. My room is large enough to accommodate recommended social distancing requirements.
In the instance you may be feeling unwell or have symptoms, I kindly ask you to advise me prior to your appointment, seek medical advice and consider rebooking for a later date. Alternatively, you can contact me on m:0490 347 048 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss another way of conducting the session, such as Skype, Zoom, FaceTime or phone.
Please contact me if you would like to discuss any concerns you have. I realise it is a difficult time for everyone and hope we can all continue to be calm and safe.
