Mentoring to navigate privilege healthily.

Unfortunately, the coaching and counselling field hardly focuses on privilege, power or intersectionality. However, psychological safety isn't distributed equitably in our society. The more privilege an individual has, the safer they are. As a result, white privilege or other areas where we have privilege will blindfold us in our role as counsellors. Therefore, we may unconsciously harm BIPOC clients or other clients who belong to marginalized groups.

Anti-oppressive/ anti-racist practice is a vital element to provide ethical services. This program supports you in breaking the cycle of systemic violence and providing ethical services to your clients.

How does the program work?

Participating in the program, you will have a safe space to do your personal work to implement anti-racist and anti-oppressive practice. The duration of the mentoring depends on where you are it. It consists of regular zoom calls, education, homework for self-reflection and email support. The program is trauma-informed.
