Professional supervision and business coach for Nelson NZ

Gina has this wonderful ability to hold you in a safe, non-judgemental space while watching you wriggle and squirm to a place of learning.  She is tough – but I can’t wait for my next session!

-MM Electrician

“I worked with Gina for 6 months, both myself and my team have seen a positive change in the way that we communicate. Gina was able to understand my issues and provide me with the skills to lead change” – MM, Team leader

“Having someone to talk to who could help me reflect on my leadership and plan a way forward with some of the challenges I faced was hugely beneficial. Gina has a very natural ability to help people unravel an issue, break down the core components and then package it back up as a planned course of action.”

“Your approach, understanding and ability to communicate with me is precisely what I have needed. You interpret what I am saying very well and I appreciate your considerate process, I feel almost capable when I am working with you.”

SC- Business Owner

“As a small business owner I have at times lacked support and I really get this from Gina. Gina is extremely passionate in her desire to see me do well and I have feel well supported, both personally and professionally. I know she will help me to create amazing success in both my business and personally.”

SN- Business Owner

“Gina is an engaging speaker and very inspiring. Her workshop content was well researched, specific to the participants and very informative. She is a valued member of any business group.”

– Sarah Holmes, Manager, Nelson Tasman Business Trust

“I really like working with Gina for her enthusiasm, willingness to try new ideas. She holds a special interest in helping small business owners.”

– Business Mentor

“Gina is lovely! So motivational. She’s given me direction and focus and also confidence I’m on the right track.”

– RL Business owner

“Burn-out is something other people experience.  I had no idea that’s what I was going through or how it was affecting my productivity and ultimately my business. Gina was a god send, she got me moving again quickly and together we were able to meet some very significant deadlines”.

– Business owner

“My boss tells me that he can really notice the difference since Gina and I have been working together.  Apparently, my approach is much more ‘considered’.  Personally, I have found the new skills handy in lots of areas, not just work.”

    Professional Supervision provides an ongoing one-to-one confidential and trusted space for you to explore work-related issues and the impact that they may be having on you either personally or professionally.

    Working as an independent, inter-professional supervisor, my clients tend to be busy professionals in the Business, Medical and Legal sectors. Typically they are professionals dealing with heavy workloads and high-stress situations. One of the most common results people report from our work together is the sense of calm and clarity that comes from feeling in control of their professional role. This means that my clients feel they are on top of their game and thriving professionally.

    Professional Supervision is all about you setting the agenda so we work on whatever it is that you want to work on in that particular session.  That being said,  Professional Supervision encompasses three key areas within the workplace.

    The Administrative function

    Professional supervision is about inspiring you as a professional to step up and be the best possible version of yourself.  It is about accountability to your professional identity, your professional body, and your business or organisation. So within the supervision conversation, we look at your accountability around company policies, protocols, ethics and standards within your work environment.

      • Examining your professional duties and performance deliverables
      • Conflicts of interest you may have
      • Conflicts between personal values and organisational responsibilities
      • Accountability and the wider responsibilities of your profession


    The Educative function

    The second element of supervision is about generating learning or unlearning.  J Christenson once said, “If we cannot question the way we are doing things and thinking things at present, it will not occur to us that they could be thought of or done differently”.  Often we get so caught up in the ‘doing’ that we forget to stop and consider a broader perspective.   Supervision gives you time to step back and reflect on the way you think in order to explore any prejudices or assumptions that you could be making; so that you can be more effective within your Profession. 

    Your ongoing professional development

      • Identifying skills for further development
      • Exploring personal values, and your professional identity
      • Effective communication – how to manage difficult conversations
      • Authenticity at work
      • Barriers to professional growth


    The Supportive function

    Tends to the more personal relationship, ensuring that you are supported in areas such as;

      • Emotional intelligence (effectively recognising and managing personal responses – yours and others
      • Workload management – how to manage in times of high workload and high demands
      • How to thrive with feelings of stress, anxiety, low-mood or anger at work
      • Assertiveness / Self-confidence

    We talk a lot about physical Health & Safety in the business sector, however, there is a gap in how we support emotional wellbeing. The reality is 1 in 5 New Zealanders will experience a mental illness this year and often work-related stresses can be eliminated through regular Professional Supervision… Think of me as a confidential sounding board; An opportunity to pull apart a situation and find a workable solution, enabling you to work with clarity, focus, and confidence.

    “Through reflection comes learning and growth”

    I offer an obligation free initial consultation so we both feel comfortable that we can work together. Professional Supervision with me can be carried out in person or via Skype.

    Employers or Leaders at Work

    If you are a leader, there is a wonderful opportunity to provide the right level of support for your people.

    look in mirror

    A recent Harvard Business Review study found that Happy employees have;

    • On average, 31% higher productivity
    • Their sales are 37% higher
    • And their creativity is 3x higher

    Conversely emotionally unwell employees showed significantly;

    • Higher levels of sick leave
    • Injuries
    • Workplace conflict
    • And personal grievance

    The opportunity to increase workplace well-being while also increasing productivity seems almost too good to be true yet the statistics can’t be denied and certainly, my clients have seen very real tangible benefits.   As an employer, you have an opportunity to be seen as an ‘employer of choice’ by providing Professional Supervision on an on-going basis as part of your well-being responsibilities under the Health and Safety Act.  Attracting and retaining skilled people in today’s competitive environment will have a significant impact on your economic outcomes AND having a third party professional ‘signing off’ on your wellness as an organisation, reduces commercial risk and places you in the forefront of modern-day business practice.

    I offer an obligation free initial consultation so we both feel comfortable that we can work together. Professional Supervision with me can be carried out in person, over the phone or via Skype.
