If you have a question, its likely your peers do too. See below for some of the questions we get asked the most about our memberships.

Yes, the PsyBA guidelines allow for 60 hours of group supervision in the 4+2 program or 30 hours of group supervision in the 5+1 program.
Group supervision is a great way to engage with other provisional psychologists in the same program as you and learn about a broad range of presenting issues, professional practice issues, assessments and experiences.
It is also a cost efficient way to obtain supervision at a reduced cost compared to individual supervision.
When you sign up, PPH will provide you with a letter to add us as secondary supervisors (you can have unlimited secondary supervisors) and you can (with permission of your principal supervisor) commence immediately (no need to wait for the Board to approve the addition).
Our professional development and supervision is all conducted online, via video conferencing software, allowing you to access our service from anywhere in Australia as long as you have a computer, web camera and internet. So it is the perfect option for remote supervision and professional development.
Yes, the program is designed to meet all of your needs (dependent on which membership you choose). We provide professional development and supervision in line with the requirements of the PsyBA. All supervisors are Board Approved and have extensive experience.

Yes, we provide supervision for 'working in addition to placement' as well as peer supervision for fully registered psychologists and other allied health professionals.
We are also able to provide supervision for those completing masters placements who are unable to obtain supervision through their university.

At PPH we provide guidance and support for those with a job and ready to complete the application to the Psychology Board of Australia.
We have developed an e-seminar Finding Psychological Practice: As a Provisional Psychologist to assist you in enhancing your employment opportunities.
You need Supervision for BOTH face-to-face client contact and client-related activities.
This is where having a team of secondary supervisors comes into play.
At PPH, We are able to refer you to other Board Approved supervisors on our team that may have specialist knowledge in a particular area of interest in order to give you the most relevant and helpful supervision you need.
You change! There is a form to submit to AHPRA (Change of Supervisor) and your principal supervisor completes a transitional report to hand over to your new supervisor.
It is important that you do get along with your principal supervisor as you are going to spending a bit of time together, at least a few hours every week for a year or two!
You may also find that you learn different things from different supervisors along your provisional journey.
Yes, you can join at any stage of your internship program.
We can commence Principal, Secondary and Group supervision with us at any time.
If needed, we can support you to change your Principal Supervisor via completion of the CHPS-76 - Change of principal supervisor (4+2 and 5+1 internships).
Yes, however, you must be employed as an "employee" and not an independent contractor.
Check the AHPRA standard here:
We recommend having your own Professional Indemnity Insurance.
AHPRA has a Professional Indemnity Insurance standard on their website and it is also a requirement of your registration as a Provisional Psychologist to hold a compliant Professional Indemnity Insurance policy.
If your workplace holds a policy that covers employees, it is YOUR responsibility to obtain a copy of the policy and ensure it meets AHPRA standards.
If in doubt - get your own policy!
