I have worked in various fields including government and non-government organisations with both Maori and non-Maori services. I am currently self-employed (since 2016) delivering a stop-smoking programme in the Waikato area, and now looking at expanding my field of expertise within bi-cultural supervision.
I believe in using various models of practise such as 'Te Tapa Wha' by Durie (2011), but I also use my own model which is 'Te Aki Oranga' meaning to encourage well-being from a holistic point of view both in Te Ao Maori, Te Ao Pakeha and other ethnical worlds. I also encourage solution-focused methods and beliefs that work from the inside out as I believe each of us has the answers to all our questions. It is a matter of finding them and revealing them, then applying them where we are able to have the desired outcomes.
I am open, flexible, and patient in terms of providing the best support for you, if you think I would be beneficial to you, please feel free to contact me.
