Kathy Kerr

My approach is to provide a safe and supportive relationship that underpins a good supervisory experience through the use of reflective practice. I am able to work with supervisees at different levels of competency, to encourage them to contemplate and analyse their practice which will lead them to clear, informed decision making. I can assist with managing difficult dynamics, courageous conversations and positive self care.
Working in the field of palliative care has led me to include spirituality as an essential aspect of the practitioner’s world, as well as that of the client/patient. I am comfortable working in this area of practice.

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 am passionate about creating a work life balance that supports positive professional and personal growth. I see supervision as a safe space in which to reflect and challenge ones own practice in order to be able to provide a strong evidence based practice to empower ourselves and those we work with with an emphasis on risk management and safe practice. Working with team dynamics and managing complex situations within a culturally appropriate framework.

I am passionate about new graduates being supported to be successful in their new profession.  Supporting supervisees to reflect on their practice in a safe environment.  A space that allows you to incorporate theory into practice and build your own practice framework.  Incorporating ethical decision making and risk management, safe practice and self care.
Advocating for the rights of those in our communities who are marginalised and often not heard.  Developing skills enabling social workers to be able to communicate with people who may not be able to communicate verbally.
