I approach supervision from a reflective practice standpoint which is to offer a safe and exploratory environment for Social Workers to consider their practice and approaches and develop their social work skills in accordance with their own goals. I have a keen focus on self-care, work/life balance, safe practice and safe boundaries in the workplace.
I appreciate the value of professional supervision and the opportunities that this provides for individuals in their own self and professional development.
I offer face to face supervision and am also exploring the use of online supervision and welcome supervisees from anywhere within NZ.
My approach is to provide a safe and supportive relationship that underpins a good supervisory experience through the use of reflective practice. I am able to work with supervisees at different levels of competency, to encourage them to contemplate and analyse their practice which will lead them to clear, informed decision making. I can assist with managing difficult dynamics, courageous conversations and positive self care.
Working in the field of palliative care has led me to include spirituality as an essential aspect of the practitioner’s world, as well as that of the client/patient. I am comfortable working in this area of practice.

I attempt to bring a Holistic, Reflective, and Person-Centred approach to Clinical Supervision that often includes Solutions-Focused, Bi-cultural, Critical, Systems, Radical, Trauma Informed, CBT, Strengths-Based and Narrative Approaches. Having worked across the health, education and social service state sectors I have experience in supporting people to navigate the org/client complexities there, and I am happy to support with CPD logs and Professional Development advice. I have also lived and worked in the Wellington /Hutt Valley/Porirua areas most of my life.
I am currently only able to offer Supervision appointments on Friday afternoons [between 12.30 and 3.30 pm]. Like any professional partnership, it’s best to meet up – see if we can find ‘common ground’ for supervision – and take it from there. Cups of tea /water/coffee come as standard.
I am passionate about people being the best they can be in their roles, I have a big focus on self care and good health and safety at work.
I can help focus on a good work life balance, help you manage high complex cases and ensure safe practice.
I encourage reflection on your practice and yourself and integrate theory and good holistic practice in to the sessions. I am also interesting in encouraging safe cultural practice.

I endeavour to use the Te Whare Tapa Wha Model of Maori Health to help promote and understand the meaning of biculturalism, multiculturalism, personal Identity and emotional wellbeing in this ever changing world.
I encourage critical thinking and reflective practice in both myself and others and my aim for us all is a Healthy Life Balance. Maintaining integrity and personal mana in the workforce by building sustainable relationships is also of high interest to my practice.
Kia Ora, Social Work is my passion.
1×1 on site supervision exploring learning styles. Holistic approach using the natural environment to form theory and robust planning. Reflective check in; assess ones safety and mental health. Best practice modelling.
I work in a reflective practice framework that empowers social workers and other professionals to make sound professional decisions underpinned in theory and practice experience.
I have experience in care and protection, risk analysis, grief and loss, complex family dynamics, family violence and trauma work.
My supervision style is to empower people to grow their therapeutic capabilities
I look forward to working with people who are willing to engage in reflective practice with a drive to provide best practice.
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.
