Innovation in Learning and Development
A key part of clinical supervision, training, and learning is transforming yourself to be present, and use your self and identity, and walk with your client through healing.
Clinical supervision for individuals and peers are an unique feature of our consulting services. Through clinical supervision we support aspiring therapists to develop their craft within the field and find their niche.
The supervisor relationship is a “culturally safe” experience that permits and allows, and shapes critical reflexive and introspection into our work.
As an organization, we host bi-weekly clinical supervision meetings as an opportunity to learn and grow within practice.
Student interns play an integral role in our firm. We currently support interns in graduate and diploma programs, focusing on social work, mental health and counselling psychology.
Our interns experience individual supervision, access to peer supervision, access to their own gmail account, ability to work with individuals and families, comprehensive treatment learning program and tailored placement goals to fit your needs with ongoing support.To apply for a placement with our organization, complete an application form:
