Megan Downer

I have trained in a number of 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 social workers 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!
Megan is able to come to your work place for supervision where this is appropriate.

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.

NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE
I am committed to creating a safe and contained supervision space, that provides an opportunity for you to critically reflect on practice, and at times consider the overlap with your personal life and experiences. The supervisory space can accommodate many issues; complex case work, professional development, team and colleague challenges, traumatic experience, personal crisis, professional goals, management and leadership, ethical questions, critical decision-making.
I have kept one foot in the practice world and another in the academic world, and I am keen to work with you on your professional and personal development goals. Working with children and families is tough work and I am interested in how we sustain high levels of practice, maintain wellbeing and have fun along the way.
I have been influenced by narrative therapy, strengths based practice, psychodynamic approaches and critical reflection. Core values for me are kindness, honesty and respect.

I am passionate about the empowering impact of effective social work practice at all levels, from the micro-skills of counselling and therapeutic intervention through to the macro-levels of policy. I am interested in the relationship between these different levels of practice and find that I am skilled at identifying the relationships between individuals, groups, contexts, systems and culture and the influence these have on each other. I have an appreciative inquiry approach to my supervision practice, looking at what is working well and building on that, as well as helping people to identify where they would like additional supports or could benefit from making stronger connections to theories, resources or networks. Navigating personal and professional identity as well as supporting safe and effective practice would be a focus of our time together.
I may have some low-cost vacancies for those working in the voluntary sector or on very low wages in the community sector. Please enquire.
