The psychology profession has a tradition of supervision or mentoring/case consultation between practitioners. At Ranges Psychological Services, we have Board of Australia approved supervisors for the purpose of training psychology graduates and to fulfill Board Registration Supervision Requirements.
Supervision or consultation is the corner stone of our profession. Supervision is:
A Forum for reflection: where the supervisee can reflect on their work and learn from that reflection;
A Forum for accountability: where supervision is a process where cases can be reviewed and dissected so that there is learning and so that quality of work is maintained;
A Forum for experiential learning: where the supervisee can apply learnings and integrate them into their day to day clinical work;
Supervision will focus on your goals, skill development, case consultation and improving your confidence and capability as a psychologist or therapist.
Maria Paula De Virgilio is currently our only psychologist registered as a Board Approved Supervisor with the Psychology Board of Australia who is able to supervise psychologists and/or provisional psychologists.
