Supervision & Consulting

Working with your organization to meet the ever changing needs of your staff and clientele.

I offer a range of services geared towards organizational health. These services are highly customizable and designed to meet the unique needs of the business, non-profit, and government sectors.

Supervision

 

"Knowledge is not wisdom. But wisdom is knowledge in action.”

- Richard Wagamese

The rewards of engaging in a helping relationship with others can be great. We can offer insight and reflection, new perspectives and strategies to move towards wellness. 

But what happens when we get stuck? How do we navigate situations that have us perplexed or perhaps remind us of our own personal stories?

Supervision with me incorporates a number of different aspects including:

  • Attention to the health of the practitioner

  • Employing ethical decision making

  • Managing transference and countertransference

  • Implementing evidence-based interventions

  • Understanding theoretical underpinnings of your practice

  • Using practical strategies in a variety of clinical applications

Supervision services are offered to those who are in the health and human services field. For more information about clinical registration, provisional status, or advancing your scope of practice, please contact your regulatory body to ensure that the supervision requirements are being met.

Mediation and Conflict Resolution

 

Conflict and unresolved issues can lead to toxic stress and as a result, productivity will undoubtedly be impacted.

Mediation and conflict resolution services are offered to organizations that are looking to actively work through challenging situations. These could include but is not limited to:

  • Employee or employer misconduct

  • Harassment and discrimination issues

  • Organizational restructuring

Debriefing

 

Sometimes tragedy strikes and the work environment is thrown into turmoil.

Particularly within the social service sector, employees are exposed to challenging and often traumatic situations. Without taking time to debrief, the effects of burnout and compassion fatigue can begin to settle in.

Debriefing services are offered to agencies and individuals who have experienced or witnessed critical incidents within the work environment.

Ethics

 

Ethical dilemmas present themselves in many different ways and it can be challenging to address them, given the multitude of considerations that need to be taken into account.

Consultations with regard to ethical decision making are offered in order to gain perspective, weigh options, consider outcomes, plan implementation, and mitigate risk.

Policy and Procedure

 

Specialized audits of policy and procedure can be requested in order to assess how well todays diversity and social justice concerns are addressed in your documents.

 

Agencies receive a comprehensive written report with recommendations based on research evidence and human rights legislation. This may also be followed up with an implementation plan and further consultation.

Employee Wellness

 

"Most people chase success at work, thinking it will make them happy. The truth is that happiness at work will make you successful.”

- Alexander Kjerulf

The relationship we have with our jobs and career paths is an important one. In order to maintain our professional competencies we attend trainings and conferences, but how do we learn to stay engaged in our work? 

It is important to evaluate our connections with colleagues, managers, clients, and other stakeholders in order for us to grow and move forward in our careers. But what does this mean and how can we do this to the best of our ability?

The following are examples of the different types of programs and interventions to strengthen teams and promote a healthy work / life balance:

  • Group and individual consultations

  • Lunch and learns

  • Meditation breaks

  • Team building

These services aimed at addressing employee wellness, reducing work related stress, increasing productivity, and enhancing employee retention. To meet the unique needs of your business, corporation, foundation, or non-profit agency, all employee wellness services are customizable and can be delivered in flexible formats.
