I am passionate about supporting practitioners to achieve best practice within their mahi, as well as managing personal well being and encouraging professional growth.I facilitate a reflective learning process that empowers practitioners to explore issues from various perspectives and make the best decisions they can. I also incorporate strengths-based and solution-focused approaches to build resilience, assist problem solving and achieve desired outcomes.

I have a particular interest in child focused practice – ensuring voices of tamariki are heard and their rights are upheld.

I am able to provide face to face and online (zoom) supervision.
