Meet our Community of Supervisors

Our experienced hand-picked supervisors are accredited in their chosen discipline and have additionally undertaken specialised training in perinatal and infant mental health.

Trauma-informed and focused on psychological development and relationship quality, our supervisors promote multifactorial and dynamic reflective practice in addressing the many clinical issues salient to all family members in the perinatal period. 

Combining theoretical rigour, rich formulation skills and practical ports of entry to therapeutic practice, our supervisors provide a reflective space to explore and deepen therapeutic work with parents and infants.

Each supervisor has their areas of special interest, described in their profile. Direct enquiries can be made to a supervisor via their profile description.

Located around Australia and internationally, we make the most of technology and connect via video conferencing, so geographic location need not be an impediment to accessing our quality services.

Reflective Supervision Groups and consultation to organisations are also available. 

Contact us to discuss your needs.
