Ko Kandas Gee tōku ingoa

My name is Kandas Gee

With over twenty years’ experience in social services, I provide professional supervision services to human service practitioners in all areas and all stages of their careers.


care, kindness, support, hospitality

My passion for what you do is genuine, because it’s what I do too. Likewise, my care for you is also genuine, because cared-for practitioners provide quality, caring services – which is something we should all care about. I have created a relaxed, private and comfortable space to welcome you into and offer my support in your mahi.


to listen

I hold value to listening with intent, and am a strong advocate of being able to hear the voice of whomever I am supporting. I strive to provide you with the space and freedom to navigate your way through thoughts, feelings, and decisions without judgement. I support you by listening and offering gentle guidance. I do not seek to impose myself on your experiences.


to reflect

I value reflective practice in all professional services. Through reflection we are able to identify, acknowledge and release feelings, patterns, thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve us in order to grow in ourselves and our mahi. Through reflection we practise mindfulness which is the key to making sound decisions, and learning to trust our judgement, and to recognise when our judgement may be compromised or clouded.


to empower

You hold all the tools, but sometimes you may need reminding. I work with you in order to empower you to move forward in your mahi with self-confidence. We will have courageous conversations and grow together.


to honour

I will always honour your voice and your individuality, and respect your privacy. I support professional services in which people of all backgrounds work together to provide quality services that bridge cultural divides through understanding and respect.

Qualifications & Experience

I have been practicing supervision for over 7 years, and have vast experience in supporting whānau and children, people with disabilities, social service students, international students, migrants and whānau experiencing the impacts of trauma.

I have been involved in developing initiatives and strategies to improve outcomes for whānau in crisis and develop support networks to strengthen families. From helping those in need to navigate the available help and find their feet, to working with whānau on the cusp of Oranga Tamariki interventions, to safeguard relationships and deescalate crises – I have experienced every up and down imaginable leading me to build and cultivate resilience and mindfulness in my own practice.

I am a Registered Social Worker (SWRB, 7490) and a member of Aoteraroa New Zealand Association of Social Workers (ANZASW). I hold a Diploma in Child Psychology from Kilroy's College in Ireland, a Bachelor of Applied Social Services from NorthTec, Whangārei, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Professional Supervision from Auckland University.

I currently divide my time between ACC social work, gardening and providing supervision. Naturally, I myself am also professionally supervised, which has served to enrich my understanding of the process and to support me to be the best practitioner I can be.

Personal commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi

As a seventh generation Pākeha, I am committed to upholding Te Tiriti ō Waitangi in every day practice. I respect the status of Māori as Tangata Whenua of Aotearoa New Zealand. I am on a personal journey of learning Te Reo Māori and embedding tikanga into daily practice.

On a personal note:

I am an active person who enjoys the beautiful outdoors of Aotearoa. I am married with two grown sons and a large organic garden which supports my wellbeing. Having experienced burnout myself and navigated personal crises, my empathy for my clients as both a social worker and as a supervisor has deep roots and equips me with real insight to support others on their journey and help mitigate risk.
