I welcome you to read more about me and get in touch so we can discuss whether you and I would be a good fit for clinical or counselling supervision.
Please note: I am not currently offering any practicum opportunities to students.
More about Caroline
I obtained my license to provide counselling & psychotherapy in the UK and Europe in 2010 after completing postgraduate studies at the University of Strathclyde. Over the course of five years, I worked in the UK in various clinical environments including primary care, postsecondary counselling services, community agencies and private practice. I completed further studies in counselling & psychotherapy at the University of Aberdeen in 2014 - the same year I also obtained a COSCA-accredited certificate in Supervision. Since my return to Canada, I have held various roles including in education, counselling & psychotherapy. I currently work in private practice and as an associate within a collective of therapists, for Health Canada, for RCMP, Canadian Armed Forces and Veterans Affairs Canada.
I consider myself to be a person-centred therapist and the therapeutic relationship is the foundation of my own therapeutic work with clients. I also have training in - and use other interventions including CBT, CBT for Anxiety Disorders, Mindfulness, Compassion-focused therapy, solution-focused therapy and Narrative therapy/Narrative approaches to trauma. Other competencies include DBT skills training and motivational interviewing.
Philosophy of Supervision
I see supervision as an extension of the curiosity we bring about our clients' processes - hopefully we are constantly checking in with ourselves and a supervisor, extending that inquiry to our client work, skills and use of self. Regardless of our therapeutic orientation, training and years of experience, we all bring a unique set of skills, experiences and values to this work. We are all growing and developing as people - and as professionals. My aim for supervision is to co-create a safe and caring space where you feel free to express your strengths, hopes, vulnerabilities and fears. A space where you feel valued, supported, held, inspired to continue your personal inquiry and challenged to delve deeper. A space to learn and ask questions. And a space where you feel confident in leaning on the experience of your supervisor and also growing your own set of competencies.
If you feel like we may be a good fit for supervision, I invite you to get in touch.
