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.

I attempt to bring a Holistic, Reflective, and Person-Centred approach to Clinical Supervision that often includes Solutions-Focused, Bi-cultural, Critical, Systems, Radical, Trauma Informed, CBT, Strengths-Based and Narrative Approaches. Having worked across the health, education and social service state sectors I have experience in supporting people to navigate the org/client complexities there, and I am happy to support with CPD logs and Professional Development advice. I have also lived and worked in the Wellington /Hutt Valley/Porirua areas most of my life.
I am currently only able to offer Supervision appointments on Friday afternoons [between 12.30 and 3.30 pm]. Like any professional partnership, it’s best to meet up – see if we can find ‘common ground’ for supervision – and take it from there. Cups of tea /water/coffee come as standard.
I am passionate about people being the best they can be in their roles, I have a big focus on self care and good health and safety at work.
I can help focus on a good work life balance, help you manage high complex cases and ensure safe practice.
I encourage reflection on your practice and yourself and integrate theory and good holistic practice in to the sessions. I am also interesting in encouraging safe cultural practice.
Strengths focused – supporting social workers to reflect on their practice and how they might utilize their strengths to support positive change
Uses of reflexivity: pause – reflect – learn – apply

Importance of being Māori and working in a multi-cultural society has led to enhancing and effective interactions with Whānaungatanga being the key to positive interactions and outcomes.
At my business; Solution Talk Counselling I provide professional supervision for social workers, practitioners and students. I use Strengths based and reflective processes and strongly stand behind safe and ethical practice for clients, the professional and their organisation. I am passionate about assisting with growth and goal setting in professionals both personally and professionally.
