Certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant
Converging Currents has grown into a multi-diciplinary team. We value seasoned counsellors, as well as, new counsellors and practicum students because we recognize that there is value in every stage of a counsellors career. New therapists keep seasoned counsellors from becoming stagnant and complacent in our work; while seasoned therapists offer experience and perspectives that new therapist are still gaining. New therapists are learning, but bring great benefits to the team because they have fresh eyes and do not get trapped in the idea of “one size fits all”. We hire practicum students for two reasons: because we want to continue to honor growth and learning within our team and because they allow us to offer a sliding scale to those who can’t afford private counselling, but still want the quality and care that comes with private practice.
We regularly meet as a team and occasionally observe each other’s sessions (when clients permit it), because we believe this benefits our clients. Team meetings allow us to debrief and unpack questions and challenges we are experiencing which helps us gain fresh insight and ensure we are not missing anything in our work with clients. Co-Therapy Sessions benefit the client because this means a second set of eyes and ears in the room. A counsellor observing another counsellor’s sessions can offer new perspectives and additional resources to the client.
Practicum Student’s work with clients alone, but Hannah Kempf supervises and oversees their work. Hannah will often sit in sessions with students and is always available to the student for support and insight. Clients are encouraged to also reach out to Hannah if they have questions. You benefit from working with a student counsellor because you get two counsellors supporting your journey.
