Sandy Kirkwood's Groups

Online Clinical Supervision Small Group

Sandy offers online clinical supervision to small groups of beginning, intermediate or seasoned professionals. Maximum 4 people. $157.50/per 2-hour session. Group supervision promotes accelerated personal and professional growth through shared learning, peer support and mutual feedback. Sandy's philosophy is that we are stronger therapists when we engage in reflection and personal work. We can do that within a supportive safe space, where we can share, brainstorm, connect, laugh and come away with practical ideas and resources to use with clients. Sandy is happy to provide references to accrediting agencies, such as BCACC, if requirements are met.
