Systemic racism and systemic oppression affect many people in Canada. Systemic racism wouldn't exist without colonization and a culture of white supremacy - the social conditioning we are born into. These social dynamics also play a role in the relationship between client and therapist.
We support counsellors, coaches, and therapists to integrate a social justice lens into their services. This includes dismantling the complex dynamics of power, privilege, and oppression.
We envision a world where mental health professionals learn to take care of their privilege and dismantle the traits of a culture of white supremacy so that we can provide healthier services to diverse clients.
The social injustices in our society also affect the relationship of white counsellors and their BIPOC clients. As a white counsellor, we have automatically white privilege towards our BIPOC clients. Many of us aren't trained on how to navigate this ethically. The program Unmasking white privilege will support you in doing so.
This coaching program supports you in navigate privilege healthily as a counsellor or coach. Start your journey today to integrate an anti-oppressive/ anti-racist lens into your services.
Individuals belonging to the LGBTQ2S+ community face different experiences of oppression in society. Many counselling trainings don't touch on experiences of gender and sexually diverse people. Counselling can be harmful if a counsellor isn't well aware about these dynamics. This coaching program supports leaders in the mental health field in providing healthier services for LGBTQ2S+ community.
