Supervision and Mentoring | Rashi Gadekar

By: Rashi Gadekar  05-Apr-2012

If you are considering me as a Supervisor you may like to know :

I am influenced in my supervision by ideas and concepts shared by Daphne Hewson ( Clinical psychologist, Australia) and Johnella Bird ( Narrative practitioner, Auckland). I take a strengths- and enquiry-based position.

My preference is for the supervision hour to provide food for thought, some research or practice references to support those positions and a detailed clinical (or management, cultural, organisational)  discussion on the basis of which to use new skills or dust off old ones.

I prefer a contracted service which is reviewed and kept up-to-date.

I am punctual, organised, accessible and professional.

I keep my professional association membership (ANZASW) current. I am also an associate member of the Australia New Zealand Association of Psychotherapy.

I am able to supervise up to 15 supervisees, individually or in small groups. At present this group is comprised of  managers, social workers, psychologists and community workers.This group includes men and women, GLTB and is multi-ethnic.

I charge $110 – $120 +gst per 50-minute session. I am available by arrangement for emergency consults, debriefs, after hours support and as an advocate/support person for my supervisees.

I am supervised by Valerie Atrill and Dr. Maree Inder. I am part of a clinical  peer supervision group.If you are considering me as a supervisor I would like to invite you to come and meet me  for a free, half-hour, no obligation session.
