CLINICAL SUPERVISION

Eileen is a Psychology Board of Australia approved supervisor who provides supervision to registered psychologists, clinical psychologists, and clinical psychology registrars, as well as, provisional psychologists under the higher degree program.​ She is affable and engaging, and not averse to using humour, when she guides supervisees in self-reflective practice while providing them with professional skills and knowledge.

Eileen provides individual and group clinical supervision, by drawing on her wealth of knowledge and experience in evidence-based psychological practice including cognitive behaviour therapy, acceptance-based therapy, compassion-focussed therapy, interpersonal therapy, emotion-focused therapy, and schema therapy. She currently provides supervision to individuals who work with adult clients in diverse mental health settings, with particular expertise in the areas of anxiety, perfectionism, and cross-cultural issues. For more information about her, please go to the About Eileen section of her website.

Her emphasis is two-fold, in that she focuses on skill/knowledge development and self-reflective practice in the supervisory process; working with you to set personal goals for your professional development. Her supervision style is one that is engaging, supervisee-directed, and focused on self-awareness, as well as, the development of skills and knowledge.  Eileen tailors her supervision to meet your specific needs. Supervision is offered individually or in groups (with enough supervisees interested to form a group), in-person or via online platforms such as Zoom. Please enquire about fees for clinical supervision. Concessional fees are available for provisional psychologists and clinical psychology registrars.
