Rachel Hawthorne
Professional Supervision

I provide external supervision to a range of professionals working in diverse and demanding contexts. My aim is to create a supportive relationship that assists you to navigate complexity, build capability, and create sustainability over time in your work, whatever your role.

I regularly meet with school principals, lawyers, SENCOs, senior leaders, managers, and social, community, & youth workers, and I absolutely love the privilege of working with all my clients, no matter their working context.

I am available to meet face-to-face locally in Christchurch or nationwide remotely via Zoom. Contact me via the link below to find out more, or to arrange a time for an exploratory conversation.
