As an experienced Social Worker working in leadership I struggled to find a supervisor who would be able to support me in my clinical practice as well as in my leadership and management development. That fact motivated me to provide supervision to Social Workers and other professionals who may have had similar experiences.
My children are being raised bilingual (German/ English) and bi-cultural and therefor I believe I have some insights into bi-culturalism.
Outside of my work life I enjoy and believe in an active and healthy lifestyle.
I offer supervision via Skype or face to face at a location convenient to you. I am based in rural Hamilton
I am a French European practitioner specialising in bi-cultural social work practices. I would welcome the opportunity to try and help support and supervise you with integrating tikanga Maori safely, within your social work practice.
I use a ‘strength based’ approach that focuses on the positive rather than the negative, building on potential, strengths and capabilities.
We will work together on self-care plans to assist you to bring about ‘balance’ within your social work practice and personal life. I will also support you with case management and your participation in group/team and whānau family dynamics, through the praxis of ‘Pleine Conscience’, a mindful reflection, and principled development of future conscious pathways, and look forward to navigating the complexities that occur in social work so as to further enhance your professional development.
I offer kanohi ki te kanohi face-to-face, telephone and zoom as supervisory mediums.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss yours and your organisation’s needs.
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 Maori and address social justice issues. I am a skilled listener focusing on the here and now, while still attending to the bigger picture.
I am also available for telephone and video remote supervision.
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.
