TRTP endorsed supervision is a joint initiative providing practitioners access to ongoing development and support. Endorsed supervisors provide this service in line with their governing professional bodies requirements.
Supervisors act independently from TRTP in regards to supervision. All enquiries about supervision should be direct with the supervisor of your choice.
Please read through the supervisors short bio's below, and send an enquiry to the supervisor of your choice using the form at the bottom of this page.
I am passionate about providing supervision to all TRTP practitioners, including registered psychologists, social workers, and mental health practitioners for peer consultation and CPD purposes.
I believe in the importance of providing a space for reflective practice that is safe, supportive and encouraging. Depending on your needs, preferences, and goals, I will tailor an approach that feels right for you, bringing my own unique supervisory style alongside over 20 years of clinical experience.
I provide both individual and group supervision, ranging from two to six practitioners and timed accordingly. In general, regular prebooked supervision sessions are preferred although on occasion, I can provide one off supervision depending upon my availability.
I provide clinical supervision services Australia-wide and internationally via Telehealth.
Just like in my practice with clients, I believe and work on the premise that supervision is holistic, reflective and practitioner focused. I provide supervision to all TRTP Practitioners (as well as general supervision to psychologists, mental health social workers, counsellors and hypnotherapists for CPD and Peer Supervision purposes).
I provide one-on-one supervision (half hour or hour) and group supervision for 4-6 practitioners (up to 2 hours) and I am able to do so via Telehealth or in-person (Melbourne).
Pre-booked regular supervision is preferable, but I can offer once off supervision depending on availability.
“David recognises that each client brings opportunity for ongoing development and growth, personally and professionally for each practitioner. “Our stuff” can be triggered and sometimes get in the way of our client’s optimal experience. David will support you through challenging clients to triumphant outcomes in order to increase your enjoyment as a TRTP practitioner and get the most out of your TRTP practice.”
Supervision helps us gain confidence and clarity in our work. We get to ask the questions we were hesitant to ask in a larger group or social media context, and to be open about our fears and stuff-ups. We get to see how our own beliefs, expectations and self-concepts (conscious or not) might be hindering successful client outcomes. 30 years of practice as a psychologist and psychotherapist (Gestalt and Saphire Imagery as well as 6 years in TRTP) has convinced me there is always value and richness in questioning and deepening our practice by being open in a supervision holding space that is challenging, safe and enjoyable. So that’s what I commit to providing.
I find supervision to be a rich learning environment where our skills in TRTP are deepened, our awareness of how our own stories can show up in our therapy with clients, and how to develop skills to get the best outcomes for our clients, regardless of how complex the issues seem to be.
I love supporting supervisees in an engaging, collaborative and wholly non-judging space, both in group supervision environments (with up to 6 TRTP therapists over two hours) and in one-on-one supervision (usually for an hour). These are usually scheduled over the year so there is consistency of support and certainty around when superivision is available. Although the focus will be on TRTP, I have over a decade experience in many modalities as a psychotherapist and educator and I love seeing people empowered and thriving.
I have been in private practice for over 30 years during which time I have been actively involved in my own individual and group supervision, as well as my own therapy in the different modalities in which I have trained.
I believe that supervision and one’s own therapy are more powerful learning experiences than anything else. Supervision provides the opportunity to pause and reflect on our own inner life – our reactions to clients as well as our ‘self’. And each time we do this, we grow and develop more as a person and as a practitioner.
Since training in TRTP in early 2016, TRTP now comprises at least 90% of my practice. Supervision is where I go to reflect on my process with my practice and with my clients. The supervision process can be challenging and supportive, informing but not prescriptive, and always rewarding.
I offer group (four participants over 2 hours) and individual (1 hour) supervision sessions.
