School-based Counsellors and Psychologists
I am a Board Approved Supervisor with a special interest in supervising school-based counsellors and psychologists, particularly in the following areas:
Confidentiality and other ethical considerations
Development of wellbeing resources.
I can supervise provisional psychologists who are completing the 4+2, 5+1, and the postgraduate study pathways.
I offer supervision to psychologists who are seeking endorsement in Educational & Developmental Psychology.
School Wellbeing Team Consultation
Drawing from my past experience as a school psychologist and teacher, I can assist school wellbeing teams in developing student welfare and wellbeing documents. These can include behaviour management plans, return-to-school plans, anti-bullying policies, and a stepped-approach to supporting students who are school refusing.
Professional Learning & Development
I can provide training to wellbeing staff in dealing with disclosures (e.g., self-harm, family violence, etc.), on providing appropriate mental health support to students experiencing distress, and on external referral pathway options.
Having been a Respectful Relationships project lead at a school level for a number of years, I am equipped to assist with the implementation of the program as well as the embedding of the Resilience, Rights, and Respectful Relationships (RRRR) resources in the school curriculum.
