Educational and Developmental Psychologist
Clinical psychology supervision for registered psychologists and provisional psychologists.
I am a Psychology Board of Australia Approved Supervisor for psychologists seeking supervision. I provide supervision in psychology to provisional psychologists and psychologists seeking endorsement for Educational and Developmental Psychology. I am an experienced Supervisor and have had over 25 years of experience practising as a Psychologist. I am a member of the Australian Association of Psychologists.
I have worked in government and non-government disability services, schools, out-of-home care programs and in private practice.
Intellectual Disability, ASD and Language Disorders
My areas of particular interest are working with children and their families. I have worked for many years with children with disabilities in particular children with developmental delay, intellectual disability and autism. I have a long interest in children with developmental language disorder, early intervention and emotional development in children.
I also have experience in the assessment of specific learning disorders and in treating a wide range of emotional and behavioural issues in children.
I am very familiar with positive behaviour support as well as family-centred approaches to best practice when working with children.
For many years I co-ordinated and lead specialist behaviour intervention and intensive family support teams in South Australia. I have a particular interest in children with disabilities who are in alternative care including foster care. In 2007 I was fortunate to be awarded a Churchill Fellowship to study therapeutic foster care for children with disabilities, in the US, UK, the Netherlands and Finland. https://www.churchilltrust.com.au/project/to-study-therapeutic-programs-developed-for-foster-carers-caring-for-children-with-disabilities/
I enjoy supervising and have had many years of experience supervising both provisional and registered psychologists. As such I am very familiar with the requirements for Board registration in Australia including case conceptualisation and case reports.
I am available for psychology supervision online. I am available to provide regular supervision or once-off consultations as required. Please feel free to email me to discuss your supervision requirements.
