Consulting & Therapeutic Education

clinical consulting

Nicole provides tailor made consultation services to life coaches, business mentors, educators and other professionals interested in bringing a trauma informed approach to their relationships with clients.

Points of contact between clients and various professionals are often missed opportunities for people to gain motivation for change or be referred to appropriate resources in crisis situations.

Non-counselling professionals may experience a sense of worry or nagging after thoughts when clients who trust them disclose troubling situations they are facing in their lives. Professionals may wonder if they responded appropriately or whether their clients are objectively safe. Basic assessment skills and understanding duty to report, as well as how to go about reporting in a way that best preserves the integrity of the client relationship, can go a long way in quelling those worries.

After extensive training and experience in multi-disciplinary mental health settings, Nicole managed and supervised a team of counselling professionals and was responsible for ensuring that legal, ethical and safety issues were recognized and responded to appropriately. She can help professionals gain a clear sense of direction and process when handling safety issues or other sensitive matters.

Nicole provides a respectful and relaxed collegial space for professionals to assess their skills, explore their responses to client disclosures and enhance the areas that are most meaningful to the work they do.
