I'm glad you've landed on this page as it would suggest that you're interested in coming to see me for professional supervision. And that is something that I love to offer.
I have been a Psychologist (Clinical and Forensic) for more years than I care to remember. Actually no. It's been just over 25 years and I am quite chuffed to be able to say that. I've had such a fortunate career in that I've been gifted, sought and run with, so many amazing professional opportunities. Each has played a role shaping how I see the world and how I make sense of, and work with, clients.
The story of my career begins with working with offenders but then saw me working with trauma and in the perinatal space and for the past 14 years or so, supervision. Like all of us, I have undertaken loads of professional development beyond my clinical and forensic training. The most foundational was the 4-year Gestalt psychotherapy training that I began in my final year of Masters. But EMDR, perinatal mental health, schema therapy and mental health aware and trauma-informed yoga (yep, I'm a yoga teacher) are also my go-to's. Oh and endless forensic training (offender risk, parenting capacity and family court assessments) but in which I'm now often the trainer.
All of that background is important to know so you can make a decision whether to get in touch with me. But what I think is THE most important piece to share is that I am an attachment informed, relational, person-centred therapist AND supervisor.
We can talk clinical formulation, psychological assessment and therapy modalities. And we will. But what I always want supervision to offer is the chance for you to integrate your 'human-ness' with who you are as a therapist (and/or want to be) and how you (want to) work with clients. And I most want to help you build a foundation of courage, inner knowing and trust to create clarity, ease and depth to your practice as a psychologist.
I call it being a 'human scientist practitioner'.
Psychology Supervision In Perth
At Perth Psychology Collective, we’re just as committed to helping mental health practitioners achieve their career goals as we are to helping people achieve their mental and emotional wellness goals through psychology supervision in Perth.
We have a number of psychology supervision offerings for individuals, practitioners and practice owners to choose from, which are outlined below. Please note that for forensic/legal matters, it is often beneficial for the practitioner and practice owner to be present.
Choose from the following psychology supervision offerings
1. Reflective Practice Supervision
These professional development sessions are designed to support and enhance your skills as a therapist, providing a dedicated area in which to assess any issues that may be blocking your progress or causing emotional distress. It is also an opportunity to incorporate any theoretical approaches that you favour when formulating a treatment plan, as well as finding ways to merge both the personal aspects of yourself with the professional elements in order to create a more effective therapeutic setting.
Furthermore, these sessions allow for great exploration and discussion around topics such as case conceptualisation, treatment planning and implementation, in order for you to gain greater insight into potential challenges and uncover effective long-term solutions.
By utilising these sessions as a form of self-reflection, you can not only gain clarity on where your strengths lie but also work through any areas which require additional attention. Ultimately, these professional development sessions provide a safe platform for growth and understanding which can help propel your career forward and enable you to become an even better therapist.
Practitioner – 1 hour
Small group (up to 5) – 2 hours

3. Responding to a Legal Request About a Specific Client (Individual or Family)

4. Policy and Procedure Discussion and Review
This interactive session will help you to think about the people you work with and the potential approaches you could take when dealing with legal issues. During this time, we will examine your current policies and procedures in order to reduce any obstacles that may arise in your practice; as well as preparing you for possible legal requests or issues that may need to be addressed.
Consequently, I kindly ask for you to provide me with your current policies prior to this meeting so that I have sufficient time – approximately 30 minutes – to go through them before our discussion begins.
Solo practitioner OR group practice owner – 1.5 hours
