Supervision provides a positive environment within which social work practice can be reflected upon, reviewed and developed.
I have worked within the field of child protection social work for 20 years both in statutory work, and in the community, holding a variety of roles and most recently in advisory capacities to support organisations and practitioners to provide meaningful outcomes for vulnerable children and whānau.
I have supported practitioners through the provision of professional or clinical supervision, creating a space for reflection and exploration of safe practice. I am passionate about supporting practitioners to manage their own well-being.
I am a Registered Social Worker with the Social Work Registration Board and is also a member of ANZASW.
If you are looking for a supervisor and would like to explore whether I might be the right supervisor for you, then please send me a message.
