My interest is in critical reflective supervision with the use of an eclectic approach aimed at professional development and quality practice, while managing possible challenging dynamics. I strongly believe in connection (whakapapa), exploring and embracing individual’s journey. I work with a range of challenges that includes but not limited to, managing performance, challenging case load, team dynamics, self-care, assessments, intervention strategies and ethical dilemmas. My social worker experience has been predominantly in care and protection. I offer supervision via skype or by phone. I am open to face to face dependent on location and time.» Read more
My goal is to Tautoko (support) people to achieve their professional and personal aspirations through reflective supervision and safe practice. I am focused on working in a team environment and I view the community as our whānau that has difference and complex systems. Supervision for people to work through any challenges they have experienced whether personal or professional to continue to support the people we engage with.
I am available on Zoom or other social media.
I provide strengths based supervision where its a safe place to reflect on practice and any challenges that may arise. I like the Tuakana/Teina model, where we both contribute to learning and acknowledges and validates the experience of the workers without having to have had the same experiences myself. I always acknowledge best practice, healthy boundaries and self care/compassion as we do our work with people. I enjoy the continual opportunities to put theory into practice and awareness of cultural needs and responses in the workplace.
It is my intention to help workers feel valued in their work and to be able to feel confident in their skills and abilities and recognise areas where they might need extra support or growth.
I am happy to provide supervision face-to-face or through Zoom if out of region.
