Bernice is inspired by this karaka:
Discussion brings forth understanding
Understanding brings forth light
Light brings forth wisdom
Wisdom brings forth wellness.

Her sessions aim to empower through collaboration. Bernice is able to assist supervisees who practice in a wide range of professional settings: She is a reflective practitioner with experience supporting clients with emotional difficulties including trauma, grief, depression, PTSD, anxiety, panic, woman’s wellness and personal sensitive issues, anger, family violence, employment issues, career change, relationship stress, separation, disability, diversity and issues affecting LGBT community, immigration and other life transition difficulties including gender crisis and living with the effects of HIV, and palliative care. Bernice relates well to people across a range of cultures, ages, beliefs and is committed to promoting safer communities for our family/whanau to live and flourish. She enjoys connecting with individual supervisees and invites them to talk freely as a way of understanding and making sense of challenging work situations. She promotes supervision as a pathway to safe practice and professionalism. She adheres to client confidentiality and the values promoted by the Social Workers, Code of Ethics.

My interests are the development of practice competence, issues of social justice, recognising potentially unsafe practice and facilitating the learning potential in all of us. I bring a Maaori worldview and a lived experience of most social issues affecting NZ society, with a focus on critical reflection in supervision as the catalyst for transformative learning.

I am passionate about new graduates being supported to be successful in their new profession.  Supporting supervisees to reflect on their practice in a safe environment.  A space that allows you to incorporate theory into practice and build your own practice framework.  Incorporating ethical decision making and risk management, safe practice and self care.
Advocating for the rights of those in our communities who are marginalised and often not heard.  Developing skills enabling social workers to be able to communicate with people who may not be able to communicate verbally.

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.
