I am really interested in facilitating external supervision for practitioners that enhance practice as well as your wellbeing.
I feel certain that by utilizing the threads of Creative Arts Therapies we can tend to the unconscious 'stuff' that inhabits our bodies as a result of the exposure to client's trauma and their challenges, often leading practitioners to compassion fatigue, burn out and experience vicarious trauma.
I am a registered Social Worker (MANZASW) and a Registered Clinical Arts Therapists (ANZACATA). I am also registered as an External Supervisor with ANZASW.
I have completed all of my tertiary studies in Aotearoa, therefore the inclusion of Te Tiriti O Waitangi is the pathway that lights my practice. I have worked in a number of Social Services & NGOs in New Zealand since 2000.
The sectors I have supported include: Crisis & homelessness, Community & Forensic Mental Health, Youth work, NEET, Women's center, Traumatic Brain Injuries, Care & Protection Statutory Social Work.
