I am passionate about empowering social workers to provide the highest quality of reflective practice they can. I have a great deal of experience in working with complex and vulnerable clients and feel I could be helpful in providing supervision for those also working with these challenges. I personally enjoy providing couple and family therapy and would love to help social workers eager to improve their practice in this area.» Read more
I deeply value the importance of the Kaitiaki/supervision relationship and the need to provide a safe, supportive space where there is the freedom to openly express yourself – with the confidence that your voice will be heard in an empathic, confidential and non-judgemental setting.
My supervision practice is based on upholding Mana of both the supervisee and supervisor- Mana Atua, Mana Tipuna, Mana Tangata, Mana Motuhake. This is a reflective practice using my own reflection framework called KA TU TE MANA – KA TU TE ORA
I also have experience and ongoing interest in the areas of student supervision and the benefits of group and peer supervision.
I am available to provide supervision face to face and/or via zoom or skype

I provide a safe space for quality supervision focused on best practice. Supervision is collaborative, holistic and supervisee needs driven.
I incorporate strengths-based and solution focused approaches utilising a reflective learning model.
I can do supervision face to face, in groups and remotely for social workers or managers in other settings.
My goal is to Tautoko (support) people to achieve their professional and personal aspirations through reflective supervision and safe practice. I am focused on working in a team environment and I view the community as our whānau that has difference and complex systems. Supervision for people to work through any challenges they have experienced whether personal or professional to continue to support the people we engage with.
I am available on Zoom or other social media.
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.
I am interested in reflective practice and empowering social workers and care professionals to be the best that they can be. Working with team dynamics and managing complex situations. Professional, career and self development. Managing work/life balance with a focus on self care. Integrating theory into practice. Culturally safe practice. Supporting new graduate social workers as well as social workers at any stage in their practice.
If you are interested or have any queries please feel free to get in contact.

I view supervision is an essential part of professional identity, learning and growth, and is a practice I am deeply interested in. I am informed by a reflective learning approach to work with you while we actively put the ‘pause’ button on and unravel the complexity of your practice. I enjoy building the supervision relationship to be one where we can critically think, discover and reflect on ethical, cultural, diverse practice issues that are at the heart of what we do. I love seeing the ‘light bulb moments’ that happen in supervision, and see my role as one that works with people in a way that is respectful and strength-based to support this. I work from a heart centred, community focused, Treaty aware place with attention to what will contribute to best and safe practice.
I am a DAPAANZ accredited Supervisor so can supervise those who are DAPAANZ registered.
I have supervision space in central Auckland city location and am also available for Zoom supervision for those who are located elsewhere.
