I am an experienced supervisor with extensive experience supervising social workers and others in health and community settings.
I bring to my work a range of social work skills and experience that I have gathered throughout my twenty plus years of working. I use a strengths based approach incorporating your experiences of success from a range of settings and apply these to the variety of issues you bring to supervision. I use the principles of response based practice focusing on upholding dignity and recognising how you have demonstrated resistance to adversity; using this to make sense of your responses in your current situation. Supervision also promotes opportunity to review how we work to achieve equity for Māori and address social justice issues. I am a skilled listener focusing on the here and now, while still attending to the bigger picture.
Available for supervision via phone or video conferencing.
When offering supervision I work from a strengths based perspective with the aim to empower the individual to work from a place of confidence and to become the best version of themselves. I always take an holistic approach that will be in line with what the clinician need at a given time but that also meets the needs of where the clinician is at in the career and/or education.
Personally, a value supervision that is a balanced mix between support/debriefing and broadening my clinical scope and knowledge.
