I have trained in several approaches to meet the needs of clients who want to learn ways of coping and understanding themselves better. (Client centred, CBT, Narrative, Psychodynamic, solution focussed, to name a few) I am a strength based and reflective practitioner and supervisor.
I am able to support those social workers who have a component of counselling within their role and feel they need development and support in their duel role, other health professionals who require a supervisor who understands the health sector and is supportive of their role and those looking for supervision that is safe, supportive, reflective and collaborative. I am a relational supervisor who thinks supervision needs to meet your needs and this is always the place which we start!
Supervision will be based at my practice room in Remuera (free parking on site)

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 interested in end of career transitions; balancing enjoyable part-time work with the creation of the older person’s desired lifestyle. A time when a person needs to navigate their way through a variety of stages, protecting their ongoing needs and wellbeing. They may be subject to ageism and the pressure to leave employment, along with other challenges e.g. loss of confidence, grief of letting go etc.

Mature age work force transitions
Empowering social workers
Client centred (as different from contract driven)
Solution focus – strength based
Making the net work
Systems – organisational culture

My professional background has given me a systems perspective in regard to resilience and stress management, with a trauma-informed, reflective style. I enjoy engaging with new graduates and those more experienced practitioners in transition in roles and striving to effect robust balance in life.
I am usually available Mondays to Thursdays, times to be arranged at mutual convenience. I have experience of online supervision through Zoom, as well as face to face supervisions.
