Supervisors: Public Listing

Debbie O’Connor

When offering supervision I work from a strengths based perspective with the aim to empower the individual to work from a place of confidence and to become the best version of themselves. I always take an holistic approach that will be in line with what the clinician need at a given time but that also meets the needs of where the clinician is at in the career and/or education.
Personally, a value supervision that is a balanced mix between support/debriefing and broadening my clinical scope and knowledge.

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.

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.

My approach to Supervision has been informed by reflective practice which allows social workers/support workers to unpack difficult and complicated cases/situation so they can make best decision for clients in a supportive and reflective framework. My work is informed by attachment theory and ACT therapy.
I have provided peer supervision and group supervision to teams that manage complex cases involving vulnerable families where trauma/violence and risk issues have impacted on the whanau ability to keep children as a focus.
Have extensive experience in mindfulness and how to bring use this to provide a work life balance.

Julia Friedewald

I am particularly interested in supporting new graduates embarking on their social work careers through supervision which focuses on reflexive practice (reflecting on practice to engage in continuous learning), and translating all that theory you’ve learned at uni into practice!
My approach to supervision is collaborative and I understand how important it is to find the right ‘fit’ in supervision. I would welcome you to contact me to book in a free initial meeting to see if my style of supervision is a good ‘fit’ for you.

Reflective practice with Social Workers, Supervisors and Managers in any setting.

Kenny Paton

My passion is in working with Managers, assisting them to navigate the challenge of combining their Social work Ethics and Values, with the often contrary demands of Budgets, volumes, reports, KPI’s, Organisational Needs and Funder requirements. Most of my supervision has fitted into either reflective practice or a more mentoring arrangement and i am happy to negotiate with individuals what works best for them. I do find that for managers, both approaches require longer sessions – and prefer to offer 90 min sessions if possible as this ensures supervision is different from the normal time pressured daily environment.

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.

Jeanette Burdus

The primary theories and models that I work from are Reflective practice, Strengths based, Client centered and Narrative theory.
This I believe assists the Social Worker to be empowered and confident in their practice with clients and in turn provide safe and effective delivery of service to clients. This within the boundaries and policy guidelines of the agencies they work within. Alongside this is the supporting/facilitating the balance or work and personal life.

When offering supervision I work from a strengths based perspective with the aim to empower the individual to work from a place of confidence and to become the best version of themselves. I always take an holistic approach that will be in line with what the clinician need at a given time but that also meets the needs of where the clinician is at in the career and/or education.
Personally, a value supervision that is a balanced mix between support/debriefing and broadening my clinical scope and knowledge.
