Bronwyn Guptill

Supervision serves many purposes for you as a social worker, the agency that employs you, the people you work with, the communities you work in and for the social work profession.
One important purpose is accountability. I am a supervisor who will make sure that you are operating safely as a social worker and that you are transparent about your work with your clients.
Another important purpose is identification, understanding what you do and why – putting the work that you are doing into a ‘big picture’ and not operating in isolation.

Cherie Appleton

My supervision interest is in exploring, learning, supporting and contributing to building and maintaining/balancing ‘practitioner integrity and mindful use of self’.  I enjoy assisting practitioners to aspire to practice excellence through their application of critical reflection and analysis, emotional intelligence and ethical decision making.  I love listening, sharing, learning and co-discovering what makes professional supervision relevant and useful for beginning practitioners right through to senior leaders/managers of social work.  I believe in discovering and integrating theory with practice, growing critical thinking skills and resilience through conscious application of  self-care and development of a mindful practice framework.  My influencing supervisory frameworks draw from relational, solution focused, strengths based, appreciative inquiry, collaborative and holistic approaches with an applied systemic analysis. I am involved in group and peer supervision, and can offer distance supervision using Zoom in addition to one on one face to face sessions.

I have a personal experience of neurodiversity so believe I can offer insight into this in a professional/work context

Daniela Gonzalez-Bea

I contextualize supervision as a conscious and thoughtful experience, one that is imbedded in a cultural context exploring theories of social and cultural differences. Focusing on mentorship, leadership, cultural humility and mutual learning through the process of creativity , supervision can become the platform to explore the complex issues that social workers face such as
Race, class, gender, sexuality and disability intersect.
There’s no human endeavour that can’t be improved with a little creativity, and social work is no exception. While social workers can draw upon any number of talking therapy and talking supervision, there are times when talk isn’t helpful or can’t be summoned.
As an Arts Therapist and Social worker I a hold full conviction that creativity and arts can open a back door to the psyche, soul and body. Allowing Supervisees to draw from that which they cannot be put into words, thus catalysing subsequent therapeutic conversations, and self exploration.
We will explore supervision in a way which involves the multifaceted ways of communicating, This can aid the process of connecting implicit traumas of the self into explicit knowledge , thus informing our social work practice by exploring the multilayers of trauma that social workers can experience as a result of our own and that of the work we engage and our clients traumas. In and become exposed.
Creative arts therapies Social Work Supervision can involve the use of the arts—visual art, music, dance and movement, drama, and poetry.

My study at Te Wānanga in 2017 allowed development and consolidation of my own bicultural model of Kaitiakitanga and supervision interweaving Te Āo Maori values. The story of my ancestors of English and Tahitan descent help me to consider a bicultural journey as way to reflect on how we are to engage in relationships. Āta, Ako and Āhurutanga are the tenets to my model. I draw upon their lessons of careful deliberation, reciprocal learning, in developing a safe space. Growth, mana and transformation are central to the supervisory relationship and reflective practice core to this.

Amanda Robb

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.

Ariella Bond

Social work is a wonderful, and at times, challenging profession. From my experience I know that good support is essential to the success or failure of the work we do.
My passion is to support people like you, who are giving their all to help others. I know the value of a safe, confidential space, for someone to be with you in the hardest moments – the very thing we are often providing for those we work with. Over the years I have supervised people in various roles from family violence, care and protection, through to community-based and specialised social work. My supervision supports people to provide the best service to those in need, whilst also developing themselves both personally and professionally, and maintaining overall wellbeing.
Relationship is key in supervision, so it’s important to find the right fit. I work from a relational and strengths-based approach, and provide a reflective space where you can unpack difficult cases, gain clarity, be challenged, explore team dynamics, critically reflect and learn from past successes and challenges, and be supported in your journey as you help others. If this is the type of support you’re after, give me a call on 020 401 06304.

We can explore any issue that you would like to bring to supervision to unpack and reflect and develop your social work practice. I am a Maori supervisor and position myself strongly within a bicultural approach when working with you. Nga maanaaki.

Bronwyn Guptill

Supervision serves many purposes for you as a social worker, the agency that employs you, the people you work with, the communities you work in and for the social work profession.
One important purpose is accountability. I am a supervisor who will make sure that you are operating safely as a social worker and that you are transparent about your work with your clients.
Another important purpose is identification, understanding what you do and why – putting the work that you are doing into a ‘big picture’ and not operating in isolation.

Cherie Appleton

My supervision interest is in exploring, learning, supporting and contributing to building and maintaining/balancing ‘practitioner integrity and mindful use of self’.  I enjoy assisting practitioners to aspire to practice excellence through their application of critical reflection and analysis, emotional intelligence and ethical decision making.  I love listening, sharing, learning and co-discovering what makes professional supervision relevant and useful for beginning practitioners right through to senior leaders/managers of social work.  I believe in discovering and integrating theory with practice, growing critical thinking skills and resilience through conscious application of  self-care and development of a mindful practice framework.  My influencing supervisory frameworks draw from relational, solution focused, strengths based, appreciative inquiry, collaborative and holistic approaches with an applied systemic analysis. I am involved in group and peer supervision, and can offer distance supervision using Zoom in addition to one on one face to face sessions.

Claire Mushrow

My supervision approach is based on strength based relational practice and acknowledges the inherent value, opportunities and challenges/risks of working within human services.
I believe self care, and professional development are essential aspects of social work practice as are the opportunities to reflect, enquire and make changes.
My approach encompasses appreciative enquiry, motivational interviewing and solution focused. I believe supervision is a doorway to possibilities, action and hope. It requires integrity, curiosity, clarity, openness from both the supervisor and supervisee.
I offer sessions with individuals and within group/peer supervision.
I appreciate working within cross cultural and multidisciplinary contexts.
I have a personal experience of neurodiversity so believe I can offer insight into this in a professional/work context

I encourage regular review of ethics, standards and continued professional development. I often use a strength and task centred base and encourage goal setting, planning and vision.
I am keen to empower social workers to thrive passionately and safely.

Daniela Gonzalez-Bea

I contextualize supervision as a conscious and thoughtful experience, one that is imbedded in a cultural context exploring theories of social and cultural differences. Focusing on mentorship, leadership, cultural humility and mutual learning through the process of creativity , supervision can become the platform to explore the complex issues that social workers face such as
Race, class, gender, sexuality and disability intersect.
There’s no human endeavour that can’t be improved with a little creativity, and social work is no exception. While social workers can draw upon any number of talking therapy and talking supervision, there are times when talk isn’t helpful or can’t be summoned.
As an Arts Therapist and Social worker I a hold full conviction that creativity and arts can open a back door to the psyche, soul and body. Allowing Supervisees to draw from that which they cannot be put into words, thus catalysing subsequent therapeutic conversations, and self exploration.
We will explore supervision in a way which involves the multifaceted ways of communicating, This can aid the process of connecting implicit traumas of the self into explicit knowledge , thus informing our social work practice by exploring the multilayers of trauma that social workers can experience as a result of our own and that of the work we engage and our clients traumas. In and become exposed.
Creative arts therapies Social Work Supervision can involve the use of the arts—visual art, music, dance and movement, drama, and poetry.

Deb Stanfield

I have keen interest in the process of supervision – how we negotiate what happens in the “supervision room.” The unique relationship, the “space” that is created, how the time together is shaped are all integral to the work of supervision. My supervision practice is inspired by ideas related to critical reflection, social justice, adult learning, the principles of social work and Te Tiriti ō Waitangi. I am comfortable using “distance technology” (Skype, Zoom) for supervision, and keen to creatively support and develop this mode of supervision for those interested. I am also interested in the “academy” of supervision, the research and writing that contributes to the ongoing development of social work supervision practice and wisdom.
