Professional Supervision Services

Life Resolutions Essendon West can provide professional supervision services for Psychologists, Social Workers, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, and other mental health workers seeking to improve their skills in a variety of professional areas.

Some of the areas of focus are:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Solution focused/oriented
  • Narrative therapy
  • Process-oriented psychology (ie. ANZPOP)
  • Hypnotherapy
  • Assessment and report writing (eg. IQ testing, child, vocational and forensic assessments, structured and unstructured clinical interview, expert witness for court, family court, disability assessments)
  • Client-Directed Outcome-Informed (CDOI) counselling
  • Trauma work
  • Relationship counselling
  • Drug and alcohol work
  • Chronic pain
  • Cross-cultural issues
  • Youth/identity work
  • Perfectionism
  • Domestic violence
  • Psychology in education institutions (eg. school/uni counselling)
  • Statistics
  • Schizophrenia/Schizotypy
  • EAP counselling
  • Occupational rehabilitation/injury management and 3rd party payers (eg. Workcover, TAC, VOCAT/VCSS)

As with psychotherapy itself, Supervision is based on a contract for services and the first 1-3 sessions of supervision focus on building a clear agreement for the service. Fees for supervision services are discussed and agreed upon in the first consultation as part of building the supervision contract, with Intern Psychologists receiving a discounted rate.

Supervised Practice Program/Intern Psychologists

The Supervised Practice Program offered by the Psychology Board of Australia (AHPRA) is competency-based, and as such the Supervisor must effectively manage the role of Mentor/Coach as well as that of an Assessor. The guidelines  provided by the Board are very extensive and tend to cover almost all possibilities, as well as the competencies that an Intern must meet in order to have their registration conditions removed.

Unfortunately, supervision for clinical endorsement is not available presently.

While Life Resolutions Essendon West provides supervision (both primary and secondary) for Intern Psychologists, it is expressly forbidden by the Board for Intern Psychologists to work in private practice under the business model we utilise. As such, Interns will need to have found a suitable work role and cannot work for us.
