What is it like to be in a room with me as a supervisor?

Working in psychology or mental health can be rewarding but also challenging at times. In supervision I want you to feel relaxed and safe to reflect on your own practice and openly work through the difficulties that inevitably come up in this work. To do this, I think it’s important to build a connection, be curious about your work and what’s coming up for you, and collaboratively work towards your goals.

Three books that have influenced my work as a psychologist:

‘Psychoanalytic Diagnosis’
by Nancy McWilliams

‘Mindfulness for Two’
by Kelly G. Wilson

‘Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life’
by Spencer Smith and Steven C. Hayes

Circumstances under which I provide supervision:

  • Supervision for fully registered psychologists
  • Secondary supervision or consults
  • Supervision for forensic related issues (e.g., assessment, formulation and treatment for offending or harmful behaviours)
  • The registrar program leading to an area of practice endorsement

Circumstances under which I don’t provide supervision:

  • Supervision for the 4 + 2 pathway
  • Supervision for the 5 + 1 pathway
  • Supervision related to AHPRA complaints
