Kia Ora, Social Work is my passion.
I am very open to doing ONLINE SUPERVISION with anyone across the country. I am very experienced at this sort of Supervision and from personal experience know it can be very effective.
I have a passion to see Social Workers get professional, caring and practical supervision that not only gives insight, but encourages growth and development. I became a full-time Supervisor because I want to see our profession flourish and support Social Workers in providing the best possible care within our communities. I will ensure your development stays in line with the Social Workers Code of Ethics, Registration Practice Standards & the Treaty of Waitangi. Also I am aware of working within the Organisational requirements demanded of you in your role. Having had years of experience I can offer a wide range of perspectives and advice where necessary. Not only have I worked on ‘the ground level’, but also have extensive leadership experience that can be invaluable to those I supervise. Alongside years of Social Work experience and having gained the required qualifications, I have also professionally trained as a Life Coach in order to bring the very best out of Social Workers within a Supervision context. I embrace many Social Work theories such as Client Centred, Strengths Based and Psychology models. Risk management and safe practice is of the utmost importance, along with ensuring you remain encouraged and fulfilling your potential!
I have vast experience in a number of sectors and have not only worked in various social work positions, but also I leadership/management.
I am a passionate supervisor with 20 years of experience in the counselling and social work fields specialising in practice that is reflective and social justice focused. I have a particular interest and have worked with social workers who experience drug/alcohol and process addictions and work in statutory social work. I have many years experience working in the NGO sector in mental health, addictions, abuse and trauma, care and protection and SWiS.» Read more

I began tertiary study as an adult student and believe that education is a life long process. Professional supervision is a site of learning led by the supervisee and supported by the supervisor. My approach to work and life is about creating solutions rather than looking at the obstacles or barriers that often hinder the possibilities for action or change. My aim is to make supervision a fun, enjoyable, honest yet challenging experience where practitioners have the opportunity to reflect on their practice and grow and develop both personally and professionally I support making connections between theory and practice, raising critical consciousness, incorporate adult learning principles and a sociological perspective when considering practice and interventions. I have a particular interest in: professional leadership, social workers as managers, anti-oppressive practice, career development, personal & professional wellbeing and ethical decision making.» Read more
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.
