Jo Nicholls

My approach is to work with a strengths based outlook to provide a safe space in order to enable reflective thought with an eye on personal wellbeing and professional growth. I have social work experience primarily in the education field, working with adolescents and their families, mental health assessment and therapeutic interventions and working with related professionals. As a supervisor I have worked with social workers with a variety of roles, from students to experienced social work practitioners and managers. I am also experienced and enjoy working with those who are new to supervision or from allied professions where professional supervision is not common practice.
I am able to work both in person or with a digital platform.

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 Māori and address social justice issues. I am a skilled listener focusing on the here and now, while still attending to the bigger picture.
Available for supervision via phone or video conferencing.

Social work is a wonderful, and at times, challenging profession. From my experience I know that good support is essential to the success or failure of the work we do.
My passion is to support people like you, who are giving their all to help others. I know the value of a safe, confidential space, for someone to be with you in the hardest moments – the very thing we are often providing for those we work with. Over the years I have supervised people in various roles from family violence, care and protection, through to community-based and specialised social work. My supervision supports people to provide the best service to those in need, whilst also developing themselves both personally and professionally, and maintaining overall wellbeing.
Relationship is key in supervision, so it’s important to find the right fit. I work from a relational and strengths-based approach, and provide a reflective space where you can unpack difficult cases, gain clarity, be challenged, explore team dynamics, critically reflect and learn from past successes and challenges, and be supported in your journey as you help others. If this is the type of support you’re after, give me a call on 020 401 06304.
