professional workshops

We Come To You!

We all have a passion for lifelong learning. 


Our psychologists would love to hear from you to provide a keynote address, brief presentation, seminar, half-day or full-day workshop. 


No job is too big or small, as we love sharing knowledge, connecting, and facilitating new ideas. We connect via teleconference for small groups, our local community agencies, right up to large scale workshops and international conferences. 


Fees are set according to the presentation time, at an hourly rate, as well as planning and development fees for custom topics. We also have a range of existing packages in our Topic Library, so these are a good option if any of these topics appeal to you. All you need to do is say when and where. 


We also regularly meet with local community groups, GPs, and other health professionals to discuss our services and share information (free of charge!), so let us know if we can drop by yours some time.

Professional Supervision - dr. rachel bushing

Clinical Reflective Supervison For All Stages

One of the things I love about being a psychologist is that I get to rew a student for all of my professional career. I have always been a knowledge junkie and I even used to dreamily walk the aisles of the UQ library back in my undergraduate days, just taking in the smell of the old books and marvelling at all the knowledge containing in those stacks. 


If you are at the stage in your career where you are just starting out, there is a lot to take in, not the least of which is the ways in which you can still be YOU (and stay healthy and empathic) while you are learning your trade as a therapist. I charge provisional psychologists slightly less because, even though there is a lot of oversight required in supervision, you are at a stage in your career when you can least afford to pay for it. 


Making the transition out of a clinical program and into the "big bad world" of being a practicing therapist comes with it's own challenges, often taking on the role of full time clinician with full responsibility and navigating organisational demands and pressures. My fees for psychologists undertaking an endorsement program are slightly higher because of the oversight required in addressing clinical competency areas as you continue to grow into a Clinical Psychologist. 


Experienced psychologists are welcome to come to me for reflective discussions around their clinical practice - cases, professional development, career progression, and end or change of career reflection.


I have been providing mentoring and support to my colleagues for all of my career (I was even a peer trainer buddy back in my McDonalds days!) and I just love creating space for "ah ha" moments to occur through supervision. I have been a registered supervisor with the Psychology Board of Australia since 2011, and recently I was employed with Bravehearts for 2 years to be their clinical practice supervisor. All I did was provide supervision all day long, and it was my absolute dream. 


So, what else is there to say except - I'll go ahead and pop the kettle on.

Supervision Fees

2020 Fees are set at:


$120 per hour for a provisional psychologist

$150 per hour for a fully registered psychologist
