Kia ora! I am a warm, approachable senior social worker who understands the pitfalls and dynamics of the social work field. My focus is on supervision being about you as the practitioner, creating balance in your life and self care. We can explore any issue that you would like to bring to supervision to unpack and reflect and develop your social work practice. I am a Maori supervisor and position myself strongly within a bicultural approach when working with you. Nga maanaaki.

My approach is based on Margaret Morrel’s Reflective and Developmental approach.
Key areas for me are mental wellbeing, stress management, self care and prevention of burnout based on lived experience and my work in health. I also offer support with systems and pathways for use general practice if desired.
I encourage regular review of ethics, standards and continued professional development. I often use a strength and task centred base and encourage goal setting, planning and vision.
I am keen to empower social workers to thrive passionately and safely.

I am interested in end of career transitions; balancing enjoyable part-time work with the creation of the older person’s desired lifestyle. A time when a person needs to navigate their way through a variety of stages, protecting their ongoing needs and wellbeing. They may be subject to ageism and the pressure to leave employment, along with other challenges e.g. loss of confidence, grief of letting go etc.

Mature age work force transitions
Empowering social workers
Client centred (as different from contract driven)
Solution focus – strength based
Making the net work
Systems – organisational culture

I believe that professional supervision, like social work, should be responsive, perceptive, creative, purposeful and empowering. I offer a safe space to reflect on your practice context, your professional practice, your own wellbeing and how these weave together. I am committed to helping you discover what works in your practice and to enhancing this in whatever way possible – connecting you to yourself through reflection and helping you connect you to others through thoughtful action. I can support your growth as a practitioner through ongoing learning, resourcing, and support. I have worked in a wide range of roles and settings and bring this diversity of experience to supporting you in your role. I may have some low-cost places available for those working in the voluntary sector as I believe that good supervision should be accessible to everyone
