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.

I am passionate about creating a work life balance that supports positive professional and personal growth. I see supervision as a safe space in which to reflect and challenge ones own practice in order to be able to provide a strong evidence based practice to empower ourselves and those we work with with an emphasis on risk management and safe practice. Working with team dynamics and managing complex situations within a culturally appropriate framework.

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.

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.
