Counsellors and Practicum Students
I provide consultation and supervision to counsellors and practicum students, working in a strength-based and non-hierarchical framework. I provide consultation on a one-to-one basis or with your counselling team on an ongoing basis.
Process challenging, complex, and high-risk client cases
Build personal capacity to prevent burnout or compassion fatigue
Nurture and sustain your passion for the work
Strategize how to increase knowledge, skills, competence, and confidence
Increase awareness of the impact of power and privilege
Integrate your clinical approach with the principles your workplace is modelled on and/or understand where you may differ from them
Uncover possible discomforts with professional ethics and required standards
Address standards (such as accreditation expectations) and personal barriers with documentation (session notes and assessments)
Counsellors whom I support consistently say that they know me to bring presence, care, heart, respect, sincerity, and experience to our work together.
