This is an inspiring, safe, professional, and fun place for experienced and novice counsellors and psychotherapists in Vancouver.

Our meetings consist of Essence of Therapy meetings which include Peer Supervision & Therapy Focused Discussions. Recently, we started Business of Therapy meetings as well, where we support each other through our journey of growing private practice and focus on discussions and topics of starting and maintaining Private Practice.

In 2015 our Essence of Therapy therapeutic topics included the following:

1. Helping Clients Survive Crisis

2. Approaches for Emotional Regulation

3. Working with Eating Dissorders

4. Working with Negative Self Talk

5. Issues of Terminating Therapy. How do we know it's time. How do we bring it up. What to be aware of?

6. Working with Anger Management

7. Suicide Assessment

8. How do we Minimize "No Shows"

9. Signs of Psychosis and Knowing when to Refer

10. How do we deal with being a 'therapist" to friends and family members

11. Compassion Fatigue, Burnout, Therapist Self Care

About Business of Therapy Meetings:

One valuable lesson I I have learned in my journey of developing private practice is that there is no one success formula that works for everyone. I believe that we all have our unique way of being in the world and as a practitioner in private practice you can find a way of developing your business as a therapist in a way that fits YOU & THE TYPE OF CLIENTS YOU WANT TO SEE! With a little support from peers & sharing of creative ideas, you can find what works for you!

I am hoping to create supportive environment where you can share both your successes and struggles with establishing your private practice. We will talk about what counseling and therapy courses don't teach you! Discussions will focus on growing and nurturing your private practice. You can listen to stories and ideas, take ideas and insiprations that fit and leave what does not feel right for you.

Please note that although we appreciate everyone's interest in psychology this network is only open to individuals working in the mental health field with a minimum of MA degree. We will consider applicants who are currently pursuing their MA or MEd degrees in counseling or social work.
