Dalice Prebble | Sup 4 the Soul


I hold qualifications in Social Work, have obtained competency and provisional registration and hold an annual practising certificate with the Social Workers Registration Board of New Zealand (SWRB). I have full membership with the Aotearoa New Zealand Association of Social Workers (ANZASW). I continue to study at Open Polytechnic and regularly attend professional development opportunities to keep my own practice up to date.

I have recently completed Margaret Morrel’s Reflective Supervision training which I thoroughly enjoyed and found greatly beneficial. I have also completed basic field training at ARA Institute at Canterbury in Christchurch.

As a professional and a supervisor:

  • I have a strong focus on self-care and the prevention of burn-out
  • I believe it is important to share and celebrate successes
  • I have a deep passion and motivation to see and support other Social Workers into General Practice
  • I value relationships and collaboration
  • I believe our life experiences help us to provide empathy and understanding

In my work, I engage with all cohorts, but focus mainly on patients that are pregnant or parenting in their teens or are struggling with mental health, employment, other agencies, access or inadequate housing.

Prior Experiences

I worked in several customer service roles and I believe this experience provided me with a sound understanding of what is important to people (customers, clients and patients) and more specifically a solid understanding and use of the Person Centred approach.

Outside of work, I enjoy gardening, tramping, travel, cooking, friends and family. I love being near the ocean or lakes. I have a great sense of humour and love to laugh!

I have experienced all of the earth quakes in Christchurch, the total loss of my home in the first quake and the ongoing battle of purchasing a ‘botched’ repair as my next home, the loss of someone close to suicide, severe endometriosis, have home-schooled my child while travelling, marriage and divorce, studying later in life, living in another country, parenting without a partner for a period of time and most recently the Christchurch mosque shootings.

I am of Ngai Tahu descent.
