My interest is in critical reflective supervision with the use of an eclectic approach aimed at professional development and quality practice, while managing possible challenging dynamics. I strongly believe in connection (whakapapa), exploring and embracing individual’s journey. I work with a range of challenges that includes but not limited to, managing performance, challenging case load, team dynamics, self-care, assessments, intervention strategies and ethical dilemmas. My social worker experience has been predominantly in care and protection. I offer supervision via skype or by phone. I am open to face to face dependent on location and time.» Read more
I welcome the whole person, work and home life, your emotional, physical, relational, spiritual being. I encourage and strengthen your way of being.
People say that they feel accepted, free to talk, hear themselves think. Hopeful for what they could do, who they are. Engaged, learning new things by readings and podcasts they get. I’m on their side, I’m for them, I’m interested in what they can do.
I can do online, phone or face-to-face in the Bay of Plenty.
My experience and interests are providing professional supervision for people working in adult services including mental health, addictions and physical health.
I provide a safe, supportive, reflective approach encouraging people to raise to the challenge of being the best social worker they can be.
I have supervised social work students on placements in Whakatane and Rotorua. This is due to agencies not having qualified clinical supervisors. This has been very refreshing because of their enthusiasm to learn. My passion to ensure practitioners have an opportunity to have a safe place to question processes, procedures and reflect on their practice.
I use an eclectic range of supervision approaches (reflective, strength-based, task-centred, person-based, interactive drawing therapy) to empower supervisees to learn and become effective workers within the boundaries of their agency/organisation they work for. For some starting with karakia or prayer before a session is up to the supervisee.
I am also passionate about self-care and work/life balance.
Reflective practice where the supervisee is encouraged to explore matters from different perspectives, empower the individual professional to find alternatives to handling a situation, leadership and management development, time management and efficiency within the work space, supporting safe and high quality practice, supporting analysis and creative and innovative ways to solution findings, risk management.
