Tobias Penno, MSW

Registered Social Worker
Perth WA
I am a registered social worker with the 'Australian Association of Social Workers', and have focussed my career to become a mental health practitioner. In keeping with standard practise in the mental health industry I have regular ongoing supervision with an experienced clinical supervisor who supports my practice. When I work with individuals I trust that they have the wisdom necessary to work through their current life challenges, and see my role as a co-researcher with them to facilitate their growth and healing. Weaving elements from a variety of modalities my intention is to support you to re-author your narrative, to come home to your body and to connect you with your own inner healing intelligence.
