At the heart of good therapy is a strong working relationship between client and therapist.

Supervision with the Centre for Clinical Psychology Team

Our team members are able to provide supervision via face-to-face appointments or via telephone or internet video conferencing. You can find more about each team member on our team page. All of our team can provide peer supervision that meets the requirements of Continuing Professional Development for Clinical Psychologist. In addition, many of our team are registered supervisors with AHPRA and can provide supervision for psychologists involved in a registrar program (for Clinical Endorsement) and for provisional psychologists involved in masters and higher education programs.

We also provide small group supervision and small group professional development activities to assist with the learning needs of new and experienced psychologists. These groups are limited to six people and are run by experienced psychologists. We have a strong supervision philosophy that underpins our group and individual supervision.
