I offer a reflective and supportive service, where I bring strong interpersonal skills. I hold value to listening with intent to understand, providing empathy and guidance to facilitate growth in professional practice and personal well-being. I use Davys and Beddoe’s (2010) Reflective Learning Model of supervision as my primary approach to support reflexive practice.

I provide an organic therapeutic approach, which is open and honest, driven by the learner, facilitated by myself as the supervisor; to support professional resilience, help to define new ways forward in your mahi and to enhance effectiveness as a social worker. I offer support to understand application of theory to practice, ensure accountability in terms of adhering to ethical and safe practices, support to nourish well-being and plan professional development pathways.

When offering supervision I work from a strengths based perspective with the aim to empower the individual to work from a place of confidence and to become the best version of themselves. I always take an holistic approach that will be in line with what the clinician need at a given time but that also meets the needs of where the clinician is at in the career and/or education.
Personally, a value supervision that is a balanced mix between support/debriefing and broadening my clinical scope and knowledge.
