|Supervision is an essential part of professional growth for health and social service agency practitioners. I believe in the professional supervision process being enabling, useful and relevant for supervisees who are front line workers, managers and/or leaders. I work collaboratively to create a supervisory environment that is respectful, strengths based and solution focused, with a focus on sustaining professional wellbeing in the context of team, organizational and institutional dynamics and challenges.
I enjoy assisting practitioners to achieve culturally safe, high quality, ethical practice standards and to seek the best outcomes for clients and organizations. Encouraging practice that promotes critical reflection and analysis, linking theory to practice and advocating for continuing professional development.
I support culturally competent, responsive service delivery consequently awareness of te Ao Māori and matauranga Māori concepts, models and frameworks is the never- ending learning journey along with an increasing knowledge and understanding of models and frameworks from other cultural and ethnic groups in Aotearoa.
I can offer Supervision kanohi ki te kanohi (face to face) or Zoom. You are very welcome to contact me.
|I enjoy supporting new and aspiring managers and leaders.|
