Along with providing counselling, I also deliver presentations, workshops, and consultation services. Some of these topics have been delivered to large groups and to smaller, private audiences. Session topics include team-building, reducing conflict in the workplace, balance, and clinical management.
These topics are also available on an individual, one-to-one consultation and coaching session.
- Good teams reflect good relationships, and all good relationships involve laughter, cooperation, and the recognition of each person’s strengths. The Learn to Live on Higher Ground workshop is geared towards groups of employees in the human and social services sector. Many employees in the helping professions feel burn-out and emotionally drained. This workshop will remind you of your strengths and gifts, and how you can use these gifts to transform the lives of your clients. The curriculum was developed by Ron Bartlette and the Winnipeg Transition Centre. Ron is a world-class workshop facilitator and team leader. Through my professional relationship with their Centre, I am able to deliver this workshop to groups anywhere in Canada. This workshop can be delivered to groups ranging in size from 8 - 40 people. It can also be delivered in either a half-day or full-day workshop.
- We all experience conflict in relationships. Whether its with our significant other, family members, siblings, co-workers, or friends, conflict is inevitable. Sometimes, the dynamic in these relationships can lead us to doing things we regret. Eventually, these unhealthy patterns of dealing with conflict can become a regular occurrence. In this workshop, you will learn how drama and conflict start in relationships, how and why conflict continues to exist, and how to resolve it while strengthening your integrity. You will leave the workshop with increased knowledge about the dynamics of drama in your current and past relationships, and learn strategies for avoiding it in the future.
- Being a manager or supervisor is a tough job. In the helping professions (counselling, care-giving, outreach work, healthcare), managers and supervisors must always be available to debrief with their staff after challenging assignments. Yet, when does the supervisor get to debrief? With whom do managers and supervisors consult with when they need consulting? Providing consultation, coaching, and debriefing services to supervisors is something that I have been delivering for over 7 years. On a schedule that you and I create (e.g., weekly, bi-weekly, monthly), we explore challenges you may be experiencing in your role as a manager, and develop goals for improving your overall performance. Whether the issues are with personnel, program management, or the personal challenge of separating your personal life form your professional life, I will coach you on strategies to improve your clinical and managerial skills.
