My supervision experience has been in providing clinical, cultural and evidence-based model support to residential staff, and family therapists from a range of professional backgrounds. Most recently, I have gone into private practice offering supervision for teams and kaimahi, utilising different Māori models.
In a supervision setting I sit alongside a kaimahi within the context of a reciprocal relationship in that we both bring our own wisdom and that we both have something to learn from meeting together. My supervision style is grounded in a mixture of Māori world values and non-Māori therapeutic teachings. I have a strength-based approach that is respectful, hopeful, fun and solution focused.
My intention is to support kaimahi on a journey of self-care, self-analysis, reflection and liberation to make changes to better assist themselves and therefore the tamariki, rangatahi & whānau they serve.
