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.
Kia ora! I am a warm, approachable senior social worker who understands the pitfalls and dynamics of the social work field. My focus is on supervision being about you as the practitioner, creating balance in your life and self care. We can explore any issue that you would like to bring to supervision to unpack and reflect and develop your social work practice. I am a Maori supervisor and position myself strongly within a bicultural approach when working with you. Nga maanaaki.» Read more
