Postgraduate Interns

The Lavender Counselling Postgraduate Internship program offers counsellors an opportunity to come alongside colleagues in a deeply humanistic counselling practice that is alive to the latest research and insights. We value ethically-inspired decision making and a deep attunement to ourselves and our clients. We embody non-judgmental compassion, prizing, and an absolute conviction that the client is best placed to determine the direction of their personal therapy and of their life as a whole.

Postgraduate Interns provide counselling services across a broad range of presenting issues and to a highly diverse population that will include, but not be limited to, complimentary clients, reduced-rate clients, and EAP clients. A theoretical and clinical understanding of trauma is an asset; a commitment to a relational way of working with trauma is integral to being a part of the Lavender Counselling team.

Postgraduate Interns will receive monthly sessions with the Lavender Counselling Director. The internship opportunity will run for 6 months. The selected candidates will begin seeing clients under the Lavender Counselling banner and will work up to and maintain full time hours until the end of the internship. While there is a finite end date for the program, counsellors may find there is an opportunity to discuss permanent future contract employment at the end of the internship process. Please email Carolynn Turner (reception@lavendercounselling.com) with your CV and your availability to meet for an interview. There will be an extensive interview process.

Pregraduate Interns

The Lavender Counselling pre graduate internship program offers a training site for students working on their Master's Degree in either Counselling and/or School Counselling. We are a deeply humanistic counselling practice that is alive to the latest research and insights and are looking for interns who wish to explore a humanistic form of practice. We will support interns to wholehearted engage in ethically-inspired decision making and to create a deep attunement to themselves and their clients. Interns must embody an absolute conviction that the client is best placed to determine the direction of their personal therapy and of their life as a whole so they can meet their clients from a place of non-judgmental compassion.

Pregraduate Interns will meet with a broad range of clients with various presenting issues offering reduced-rate services. Pre graduate Internships are preferred to begin in September of each year and hours must be complete by June 15th. There is no internship availability through the summer months.

The selected candidates will begin seeing clients under the Lavender Counselling banner and will video record all client sessions. Pregraduate Interns will meet for 1 supervision session every 5 client sessions. Supervision will be scheduled at regular time(s) each week.
