Looking for a supervisor that you can trust? Looking for a supervisor with whom you can feel relaxed and safe? I am a solutions-focussed, strengths-based practitioner with experience working in schools, the community and crisis and trauma.

I attempt to bring a Holistic, Reflective, and Person-Centred approach to Clinical Supervision that often includes Solutions-Focused, Bi-cultural, Critical, Systems, Radical, Trauma Informed, CBT, Strengths-Based and Narrative Approaches. Having worked across the health, education and social service state sectors I have experience in supporting people to navigate the org/client complexities there, and I am happy to support with CPD logs and Professional Development advice. I have also lived and worked in the Wellington /Hutt Valley/Porirua areas most of my life.
I am currently only able to offer Supervision appointments on Friday afternoons [between 12.30 and 3.30 pm]. Like any professional partnership, it’s best to meet up – see if we can find ‘common ground’ for supervision – and take it from there. Cups of tea /water/coffee come as standard.
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 work in a reflective practice framework that empowers social workers and other professionals to make sound professional decisions underpinned in theory and practice experience.
I have experience in care and protection, risk analysis, grief and loss, complex family dynamics, family violence and trauma work.
My supervision style is to empower people to grow their therapeutic capabilities
I look forward to working with people who are willing to engage in reflective practice with a drive to provide best practice.
I have trained in a number of approaches to meet the needs of clients who want to learn ways of coping and understanding themselves better. (Client centred, CBT, Narrative, Psychodynamic, solution focussed, to name a few) I am a strength based and reflective practitioner and supervisor.I am able to support those social workers who have a component of counselling within their role and feel they need development and support in their duel role, other health professionals who require a supervisor who understands the health sector and is supportive of their role and social workers looking for supervision that is safe, supportive, reflective and collaborative. I am a relational supervisor who thinks supervision needs to meet your needs and this is always the place which we start!
Megan is able to come to your work place for supervision where this is appropriate.
