Looking for a supervisor that you can trust? Looking for a supervisor with whom you can feel relaxed and safe? I am a solutions-focussed, strengths-based practitioner with experience working in schools, the community and crisis and trauma. I am passionate about making change in the areas of family harm and parenting. I have lived and worked in South Auckland for the past 15 years (many years community work prior to Uni) and love engaging with diversity and difference. I am interested in reflexive practice, empowering clients, social work practices and processes, managing personal and professional boundaries and building resilient, efficient, confident practitioners.

Ko Horokiwi tōku māunga. Ko Kenepuru tōku awa. Ko Kōtarana [East Glasgow] tōku iwi. Nō Porirua East ahau. Ko Horouta tōku marae.Ko Jon Blackshaw tōku ingoa.
I attempt to bring a Holistic, Reflective, and Person-Centred approach to Clinical Supervision that often includes Solutions-Focused, Bi-cultural, Critical, Systems, Radical, Trauma Informed, CBT, Strengths-Based and Narrative Approaches. Having worked across the health, education and social service state sectors I have experience in supporting people to navigate the org/client complexities there, and I am happy to support with CPD logs and Professional Development advice. I have also lived and worked in the Wellington /Hutt Valley/Porirua areas most of my life.
I am currently only able to offer Supervision appointments on Friday afternoons [between 12.30 and 3.30 pm]. Like any professional partnership, it’s best to meet up – see if we can find ‘common ground’ for supervision – and take it from there. Cups of tea /water/coffee come as standard.

I encourage critical thinking and reflective practice in both myself and others and my aim for us all is a Healthy Life Balance. Maintaining integrity and personal mana in the workforce by building sustainable relationships is also of high interest to my practice.
