These classes are ideal for people who are further along in their journey and are working on the relationship they have with themselves.

Lived Experience Workforce Supervision
Approved to provide supervision under the "ACCESS TO SUPERVISION PROJECT.”
I am a lived experience advocate and eating disorder counsellor. I have worked as a peer worker and counsellor in both public and private mental health services. I use a blend of lived experience with clinical intervention in my private practice. I currently work as a Senior Lived Experience Advisor at the Centre of Excellence for Eating Disorders. I am passionate about supporting the lived experience workforce to grow and build confidence in themselves.
My approach to supervision is empowering clients to see the immense skill and knowledge they bring to their role. Build upon how they integrate their lived experience into their roles, as well as expanding their skills in supporting people and working within a multidisciplinary team. Supporting clients to explore and sit with the difficult aspects of lived experience work, managing difficult workplace dynamics and building a professional identity.
