Global definition of the social work profession

“Social work is a practice-based profession and an academic discipline that promotes social change and development, social cohesion, and the empowerment and liberation of people. Principles of social justice, human rights, collective responsibility and respect for diversities are central to social work. Underpinned by theories of social work, social sciences, humanities and indigenous knowledge, social work engages people and structures to address life challenges and enhance wellbeing.” – International Federation of Social Workers, July 2014.

Therapeutic approach

As a student and therapist I’ve gained valuable knowledge and skills over the years and my therapeutic approaches are based on the following:

  • The narrative approach (“we all have a story to tell”)
  • The strengths perspective (“people are resourceful and resilient”)
  • Solution focused brief therapy (“let us focus on solutions”)
  • Systems theory (“no man is an island”)


  • Therapeutic Services
  • Psychological First Aid (PFA) / Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD)
  • Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
  • Essential Skills Facilitation
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Mentoring & Coaching
  • Social Work Supervision
  • Strategic Planning
