I have supervised social work students on placements in Whakatane and Rotorua. This is due to agencies not having qualified clinical supervisors. This has been very refreshing because of their enthusiasm to learn. My passion to ensure practitioners have an opportunity to have a safe place to question processes, procedures and reflect on their practice.
I use an eclectic range of supervision approaches (reflective, strength-based, task-centred, person-based, interactive drawing therapy) to empower supervisees to learn and become effective workers within the boundaries of their agency/organisation they work for. For some starting with karakia or prayer before a session is up to the supervisee.
I am also passionate about self-care and work/life balance.

Focusing on mentorship, leadership, cultural humility and mutual learning through the process of creativity , supervision can become the platform to explore the complex issues that social workers face such as
Race, class, gender, sexuality and disability intersect.
There’s no human endeavour that can’t be improved with a little creativity, and social work is no exception. While social workers can draw upon any number of talking therapy and talking supervision, there are times when talk isn’t helpful or can’t be summoned.
As an Arts Therapist and Social worker I a hold full conviction that creativity and arts can open a back door to the psyche, soul and body. Allowing Supervisees to draw from that which they cannot be put into words, thus catalysing subsequent therapeutic conversations, and self exploration.
We will explore supervision in a way which involves the multifaceted ways of communicating, This can aid the process of connecting implicit traumas of the self into explicit knowledge , thus informing our social work practice by exploring the multilayers of trauma that social workers can experience as a result of our own and that of the work we engage and our clients traumas.
