Board Approved Supervision

BayWellbeing offers accredited supervision within the field of psychology. Kristen’s extensive expertise positions her to be an ideal mentor, offering valuable guidance and practical training to provisional psychologists.

Her multifaceted scope of work and skill set ensures she exemplifies the eight core competencies in her professional activities. This simplifies the learning process for provisional psychologists, providing them with ample opportunities to continuously develop and showcase these competencies. Additionally, Kristen is well equipped to assist in preparing provisional psychologists for the National Psychology Examination.

In alignment with the guidelines set forth by the Psychology Board of Australia, our training equips provisional psychologists to:

  • Demonstrate ethical and professional standards in their conduct and practice.
  • Integrate psychological theory and practice effectively.
  • Apply relevant psychological principles, knowledge, and skills across a wide array of professional settings, addressing various client groups (e.g., individuals, families, organisations) and a range of client issues (e.g., depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship problems, etc.).
  • Exhibit competence in administering and interpreting various psychological assessment tools and techniques.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in diagnosing psychological disorders and formulating, delivering, documenting, and reporting appropriate interventions and outcomes.
  • Display the ability to collaborate effectively with diverse professionals.
  • Foster self-evaluation skills to cultivate an awareness of their professional competence and limitations.
  • Engage in and embrace the philosophy of continuous professional development.
  • Actively participate in and understand the significance of the supervision process under the guidance of approved supervisors.

Our board-approved supervision is readily available for provisional psychologists pursuing either the 4+2 or 5+1 internship pathways. For those embarking on the 4+2 internship program, successful completion of a four-year accredited undergraduate psychology program is a prerequisite. This internship spans two years of full-time training, or its equivalent in part-time.

On the other hand, the 5+1 internship program mandates that entrants have accomplished an accredited fifth-year program in professional psychology, such as a Master of Professional Psychology. This internship spans one year of full-time training, or its equivalent in part-time, providing invaluable practical experience.
