 Clinical Supervision Small Group – Online

 

 Sandy offers ongoing and online clinical supervision to small groups of beginning, intermediate or seasoned counselling professionals. Group supervision promotes accelerated personal and professional growth through shared learning, peer support and mutual feedback. Sandy’s philosophy is that we are stronger therapists when we keep doing our own reflection and personal work. We can do that within a supportive safe space, where we feel comfortable to share, brainstorm, connect, laugh and come away with practical ideas to use with clients. Groups are a maximum of 4 people. $147 per person for a 2-hour session.

After each session, Sandy sends out a log to participants of the topics covered, as well as a multitude of resources. Sandy is happy to provide references to  accrediting agencies, such as BCACC or CCPA, if requirements are met.
