I am, Joanne Meldrum
Qualified Counsellor, Supervisor and Registered Mental Health Nurse
MNZAC, NZRN (BNurs, PGDipCounselling)
I offer and value confidential therapeutic conversations that open up space to reflect and explore what is important, what you accord value to, to make meaning of your experience, through understanding how problems effect the relationships with yourself and others.
The knowledge that I have developed over the past 15+ years of working in the healthcare sector, has led to an understanding that if your core beliefs/values are compromised, this can cause a lack of inner balance/harmony. I work with people to improve the relationship with themselves and others, by overcoming the barriers that get in the way of living a life of value and meaning.
How I approach problem solving is with a holistic and pragmatic attitude, that is simplistic and grounded in supporting you to find clarity and your authentic truth.
I offer supervision to Counsellors, Nurses, students and other professions.
The supervision that I offer is based on a reflective learning model.
The model highlights three functions of supervision;
1. Restoration - promoting self awareness, and well-being
2. Formative - learning about the development of therapeutic modalities and ideologies
3. Normative - promoting safe professional and ethical conduct.
Supervision is a critical time of in-depth reflections on the development of ethical and safety practices and personal and professional developments, which
ultimately enhances job satisfaction.
