I deeply value the importance of the supervision relationship and the need to provide a safe, supportive space where there is the freedom to openly express your self – with the confidence that your voice will be heard in an empathic, confidential and non-judgemental setting.

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.
