Professional supervision has been part of my life for over 25 years beginning with roles in health promotion, public health and change management. I’ve also been supervised as an Anglican priest with chaplaincy experience in schools, the military and the health system.
I’m now a Spiritual Care Coordinator at a District Health Board in New Zealand where my job is to ensure that compassionate, spiritual care is embedded into the health system and that we develop a vibrant, professional service that meets the needs of a changing market. This is a diverse role moving from one on one listening to patients, families, whanau and staff, through working on task groups, to teaching about spirituality and the art of compassionate presence.
I’ve benefitted enormously from the supportive experience and wisdom of the diverse range of people who have been my supervisors so now I’m providing supervision to others and also facilitating reflective practice groups.
My background enables me to offer that little bit extra by ensuring that the supervision process includes the nurture and development of your spirituality. I do this because what runs deep in you, how you understand the purpose of your life and how you engage with the sacred cannot be shorn off from your work life. Attending to that benefits you and the healing presence you bring to the world.
If you think I can help, please be in touch.
