Clinical Supervision Services

I have provided supervision support for practitioners since 2001.  I understand the project of "supervision" as the co-creation of a reflective space to explore one's own clinical practice, professional identity, and to move further towards the best practice one can offer those consulting us. It is also a place for personal support for practitioners who give so much to others. 

Supervision can be a place of care and nurture for you, the practitioner who, having given out and attended to others, can receive care and attention.


Experience and Training

In 2013 I completed a rigorous Post Graduate Certificate in Counselling Supervision at Waikato University. Prior to that I had participated in supervision training offered by NZAC over the years. I continue to evolve my understandings and skills through ongoing professional development in the area of clinical supervision.


My first experiences of providing supervision were in 2001. Since then I have supported many practitioners (counsellors, social workers and other professionals working with people in various forums) and those in training.


My studies have greatly deepened my understanding and practice of supervision.  I strive to offer rich and insightful reflective space for us to collaborate together in reviewing and learning from your practice.

Teens and Adult Status

Many cultures around the world have well-established traditions around the transition to adulthood. How do young people in New Zealand know they have entered adulthood? Do we provide them with any solid markers to reflect their increasing maturity? Teens need to know that we recognise their growing capacity for independence and making smart choices.

Consider creating some rites of passage for your family. Whether these revolve around travel, part-time jobs, or increased responsibilities at home, let your teenagers know that they are taking concrete steps on the path to adulthood. Celebrate and encourage them along the way, perhaps with a family dinner that includes speeches in their honour, or a small gift. Rites of passage make young people feel capable and respected, and give them a sense of place and security in the family and society.
