Supervision

Supervision

Tamar is a passionate and enthusiastic supervisor, who supervises newly registered, early-career and highly experienced psychologists. She is highly sought after for supervision in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with children, adolescents and adults, school psychology issues, and cognitive and educational assessments. She is an approved supervisor with the Psychology Board of Australia and the Australian Psychological Society’s College of Educational and Developmental Psychologists. She has extensive experience supervising psychologists towards endorsement in Educational and Developmental Psychology and probationary psychologists undertaking the 5+1 pathway towards registration. All supervision is conducted online and the fee is $190 for a 50 minute session.

Tamar is passionate about using ACT with children, adolescents, and adults, and has extensive experience in its use. Tamar completed her Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) at Monash University under the supervision of Glenn Melvin, Louise Hayes, and Kylie Gray, and her research compared the effectiveness of ACT versus CBT for adolescents as a compulsory part of year nine school curricula (it is the first study to compare ACT to CBT within schools).

Tamar has trained extensively in ACT with world-leading experts such as Kirk Strosahl (ACT co-founder) and Patti Robinson, Kelly Wilson (ACT co-founder), Robyn Walser, Michael Twohig,  Lisa Coyne, Dennis Tirch, Louise Hayes, and Russ Harris. She has also trained in Compassion Focused Therapy with Paul Gilbert (founder) and James Bennett-Levy.

Many psychologists attend an ACT workshop or conference or read about ACT and want to start using it, but don’t know where to start. ACT can look quite different from one psychologist to another, and you can be creative with it, so supervision is a great way to learn how to use ACT with your own clients. Tamar will teach you ACT in a practical and simple way, and how to use experiential exercises with your clients. She will also teach you how to use compassion focused techniques together with ACT, and develop your own style of ACT that feels comfortable and authentic for you.

Tamar has presented at the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science’s (ACBS) World Conference, the Australian Psychological Society’s College of Educational and Developmental Psychologists National Conference, and the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science South Eastern Chapter Conference.
