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 use Strengths and Solution Focused Approaches to support people to grow and develop through focusing on the strengths they possess and resources available to them, using past experiences to help inform future decisions. I like to start the session with the Supervisee sharing a “celebration”, a piece of work they feel like they have done well. I use ANZASW Practice Standards and the Code of Ethics to anchor and inform discussions. I provide Individual Supervision.

As a Christian and a Supervisor, I can offer the incorporation of faith into the Supervision session if desired by the Supervisee. How this looks can be discussed during our first session. This is optional

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 work from a strengths based model of practice and believe that most people have their own answers, however they may need some guidance at times to become clear. I believe in empowering both clients and supervisees to make the best decision they can. I have a particular interest in homelessness and the many factors that may contribute to a person becoming homeless. I enjoy the opportunity to positively impact supervisees working lives, growth and development and to model good supervision relationships. I work from a reflective model of practice.
