I am committed to creating a safe and contained supervision space, that provides an opportunity for you to critically reflect on practice, and at times consider the overlap with your personal life and experiences. The supervisory space can accommodate many issues; complex case work, professional development, team and colleague challenges, traumatic experience, personal crisis, professional goals, management and leadership, ethical questions, critical decision-making.
I have kept one foot in the practice world and another in the academic world, and I am keen to work with you on your professional and personal development goals. Working with children and families is tough work and I am interested in how we sustain high levels of practice, maintain wellbeing and have fun along the way.
I have been influenced by narrative therapy, strengths based practice, psychodynamic approaches and critical reflection. Core values for me are kindness, honesty and respect.

I am passionate about supporting and encouraging social workers to be as effective as they can possibly be. Over 20 years experience has given me some insights into the importance of a work/life balance, of working through the dilemma of wanting to be actively involved in social change yet weighted down with caseload or management issues. I have personal experience and knowledge in the family violence sector, family/whanau relationships, youth/child behavioural issues and using strength based practice while working with challenges such as how to utilise ‘use of self’ and engaging in ‘courageous conversations’.
