Melissa Clarke

Founder & Director | BSocWk, BHuServ

Mel has worked with people from all walks of life throughout Brisbane and Bundaberg for over 20 years. Mel has a deep understanding of the complexities that life can throw our way, from her early days working alongside vulnerable young people to more recent work in out-of-home care, mental health recovery, domestic and family violence, and intensive family support spaces.

Mel’s practice is reflective of human rights and trauma informed principles, that focuses on applying strengths-based and solution focused strategies to achieve sustainable goals.

Mel has completed a Bachelor of Social Work and Bachelor of Human Services and has experience leading several teams in multiple organisational settings. Mel is passionate about working with teams to uphold quality ethical practice and appreciates the benefits of investing in consistent reflective professional supervision to sustain teams’ performance, promote individual self-care, growth and support the impacts of vicarious trauma.

Mel loves most to see people grow, enact their human rights and work towards being their best selves. Mel is constantly inspired by the resilience of human beings and is motivated by a desire to see each person she works with progress on their journey.
