Ann Maree Billings
Ann Maree is a Registered Nurse, Credentialled Mental Health Nurse, Integrative Psychotherapist, Guided Imagery and Music Therapist and Clinical Supervisor. She has nursed for over 30 years in Melbourne and London. Ann Maree's lifelong interest in emotional and mental health led her to work in counselling and mental health nursing positions from 1998, and then to providing Clinical Supervision and personal development sessions. She strongly believes that self-care and supported reflection, as part of good Clinical Supervision, are vital to sustain us, improve practice and assist to prevent burn out. In addition, Ann Maree is passionate about Guided Imagery and Music (GIM), a music-based psychotherapy for which there is strong evidence, and the application of GIM for those seeking personal development, and potentially for supervisees in Clinical Supervision.
