If you’ve graduated with your Master Degree in counselling, but you’re not feeling confident in your work with clients, clinical consultation can help.
Maybe you’re in private practice and not holding clients or you’re working at an agency and you’re being presented with issues that you’re not sure how to navigate. Maybe you’re experiencing clinical issues being brought to you and you’re feeling inadequate to support your clients’ needs.
It is not uncommon for clinicians to create peer support groups or to have a colleague they reach out to when things feel professionally uncertain. It is not uncommon for clinicians to feel a weight from their ongoing work with clients or from working in an environment that does not align with their own values or way of being in the world. As much as these approaches can be helpful, they’re not a replacement for clinical consultation or supervision.
Clinical consultation and supervision can ensure you have a space that is all your own: A space where you can truly be heard, seen and understood. A space where you can make sense of client change, if that’s helpful, or where you can learn evidence-based, relational approaches to working with your clients. A space where you can process your own personal struggles and traumas. It is our wish to help you walk alongside your clients feeling lighter and more equipped to support them as they move towards wellness.
It is our intention to provide you with a place where you, and your needs, are the primary focus.
