Psychologist in Melbourne - Counselling & Psychotherapy, Supervision, Training and Vicarious Traumatisation Support
Bernadette believes supervision is an essential part of a therapist’s professional life.
She aims to provide:
• a safe space to reflect on practice
• a relationship that supports learning
• an opportunity to improve practice, grow and manage the impact of therapeutic work.
Bernadette has specialist training in providing supervision. She has experience supervising a range of professionals, including those just starting out in their careers and more experienced therapists.
Bernadette aims to tailor supervision to the person’s level of experience, learning style and supervision goals. She also hopes that supervision can be fun!
When organisations are funding supervision for their staff, Bernadette has clear processes that ensure that supervisee confidentiality, accountability and duty of care, are all addressed.
Bernadette has a particular interest in complex trauma. Her work is informed by a range of theories and approaches including systems theory, psychodynamic theory, attachment theory, cognitive behavioural therapies, acceptance and commitment therapy, schema therapy, solution focused therapy, sensorimotor psychotherapy and, of course, key trauma therapies.
