Jo Nicholls

My approach is to work with a strengths based outlook to provide a safe space in order to enable reflective thought with an eye on personal wellbeing and professional growth. I have social work experience primarily in the education field, working with adolescents and their families, mental health assessment and therapeutic interventions and working with related professionals. As a supervisor I have worked with social workers with a variety of roles, from students to experienced social work practitioners and managers. I am also experienced and enjoy working with those who are new to supervision or from allied professions where professional supervision is not common practice.
I am able to work both in person or with a digital platform.

Jane Weggery

My name is Jane Weggery and I am both a qualified counsellor and qualified social worker. Currently I work as a counsellor three days a week at Compass Health, a Primary Health organisation where I work with young people and adults. I also offer Equine facilitated counselling, where horses partner with people in ground based activities to support people learn about themselves and grow – websites providing more information about this are; www.eagala.org and eponaquest.com/. My private practice is predominantly Equine facilitated work and I have the use of facilities in Pauatahanui and on the Kapiti Coast.
My work is Strength based and Solution Focused and I believe that people have the resources within themselves to effect change, the horses and I merely support people by facilitating the persons process and learning.
