Experience I am an experienced senior social worker with therapeutic skills in child and adolescent mental health (UK and NZ). My clinical experience from the NGO and health sector includes: acute mental health; trauma; offending behaviours; specialist forensic assessments; consultation; and assessment and interventions in sexually harmful behaviours. My social work experience from the NGO and public sector includes: conducting assessments of allegations of harm while in state care; life story work; and parenting  programmes and assessments.
Supervision interests I am motivated to enable professionals to learn and develop their practice through reflective supervision grounded in theory. My approach is framed using Proctor’s “Three Key Functions” of supervision.

Professional Supervision for Social Workers. Clinical Supervision for Professionals either as a group or individually. Assistance with the setting up of productive peer supervision.

Additional Comment: I understand that finding the supervisor that ‘fits’ your approach and style is important so please contact me for an initial (free) conversation/meeting to see if I can meet your supervisory needs.
I work from a room in South Wairarapa. Though I will consider Skype sessions and on-site or off-site supervision in central Wellington, the Hutt Valley and other parts of the Wairarapa.
