Professional development for counsellors, coaches and therapists
When social justice meets counselling

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. 

Accountability circle white privilege
Learn to navigate your privilege ethically

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 accountability circle will support you in doing so.
