I have a special interest in the area of PPPR, the application of this piece of legislation & supporting the development of knowledge in this area.”

I have experience in both secondary and primary health care settings, Womens Refuge, Child Youth & Family and community based settings & provision of supervision to range of professionals in different settings also.

Supervision Interests/Approaches/Type:  I approach supervision from a reflective practice standpoint which is to offer a safe and exploratory environment for Social Workers to consider their practice and approaches and develop their social work skills in accordance with their own goals. I have a keen focus on self-care, work/life balance, safe practice and safe boundaries in the workplace.
I appreciate the value of professional supervision and the opportunities that this provides for individuals in their own self and professional development.
I offer face to face supervision and am also exploring the use of online supervision and welcome supervisees from anywhere within NZ.
