The Centre provides professional supervision services for psychology practitioners. Psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors, social workers, organisation development practitioners and other psychology practitioners can undergo professional supervision in a group situation as well as in one-to-one sessions.
Supervision is an essential part of enhancing a practitioner’s ability to continue to work in this profession. Supervision also includes close monitoring of professional boundaries and the ethics of practice.
The practitioners who work at the Centre are also encouraged to have ongoing regular supervision. The practitioners generally have a once a month one-to-one session with a senior psychologist. They also go through group supervision. This is also the time when they revisit the training that they have undergone, thereby gaining a better understanding and becoming more proficient.
Emotion Focused Therapy is not an easy modality to understand. It takes years for a practitioner to get competent and proficient in this method. The Centre serves a place where different practitioners can get together and support each other, and individual as well as group supervisions are the way to do it.
Supervision plays a key role in psychological practice. Supervision involves training and assessing the psychological competencies of a practitioner. All counsellors, social workers, and psychologists are encouraged to undergo supervision.
One-to-one supervision involves sitting with a practitioner with more expertise than you possess. You can ask questions, bring cases for review, especially the ones that you are having problems with, and your supervisor will be able to help you through with some of those problems. A supervisor could offer another perspective and help you gain insight and understanding of the therapeutic relationship, as well as help to resolve your own anxieties and conflicts. It is actually a good opportunity to expand your knowledge and it is an important component of a practitioner’s work.
Group Supervision is widely employed in psychology and counselling practices. Professionals requiring to satisfy the continuing professional development requirements for various psychology boards, including The Psychology Board of Australia, The Australian Psychological Society, etc., can undergo peer review and group supervision here at the Centre and gain endorsement.
