External Professional Supervision and Social Work Support for those doing "Human work" - Social Workers, Support workers and Allied Professionals across Aotearoa.  

Abby McCormack is a Registered Social Worker based in Otautahi / Christchurch New Zealand. Sessions facilitated either in person or online. 

Abby is passionate about sustainability of work force and does this through supporting other professionals to bring more balance into their mahi. Knowing that when professionals look after themselves professionally and personally, they can then bring the same to those they support. 

Abby provides a strong holistic approach and does not limit supervisees to Social Workers only, but any professionals in fields and 'human' mahi.
