She is an approved supervisor with the Psychology Board of Australia and the Australian Psychological Society’s College of Educational and Developmental Psychologists. Her extensive experience includes 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 $240 plus GST (GST is not charged for provisional psychologists) for a 50 minute session.
A passionate and highly experienced ACT practitioner, Tamar completed her Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) at Monash University under the supervision of Glenn Melvin, Louise Hayes, and Kylie Gray. Her research compared the effectiveness of ACT versus CBT for adolescents as a compulsory part of year nine school curricula. This was the first study comparing ACT to CBT in schools.
Tamar has trained extensively in ACT with world-leading experts. These include 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 learn about ACT and want to start using it, but don’t know where to start. Supervision is a great way to learn how to use ACT with your own clients. Tamar will teach you how to use ACT in a practical and simple way. She will also teach you how to use compassion focused techniques together with ACT. You will learn how to develop your own style of ACT that feels comfortable and authentic for you.
Tamar is an experienced and very enthusiatic ACT trainer and provides training to local and international organisations and professionals working with children.
