What is this course about?

Have you ever struggled with a client in session, sensing that there was more emotionally going on inside of them and feeling frustrated because nothing seemed to be working to help get the client to talk? You might have felt totally and absolutely "stuck" in the session…?

Maybe you are a "clock watcher", continually glancing at your clock in session only to find that no time has passed since you last looked? Or find yourself losing interest in what the client is talking about, struggling to stay present in the session?

The only reason I know that these things happen is because I've been there too. I understand. It's painful.

And then...I began to incorporate creativity and experiential practices into my clinical work with clients. And the results have been incredibly amazing! I'll be honest folks, I never dread getting stuck with a client in session anymore!

Why are alternative forms of clinical interventions so important for our clients?

Most traditional mental health training programs teach primarily only left-brain approaches for working with clients. They leave out all the good stuff that really works with clients in helping them connect with, process and move through their emotions and feelings once and for all.

This is unfortunate because in order to access feelings and get to the core of what is really going on with a client, we have to be able to access their emotional warehouse, their unconsciousness deep inside.

And the only way that we can get there is through right-brain kinds of techniques, such as creativity, experiential exercises, and expressive arts.

How will this course help you add even more value to your client sessions?

THIS is exactly what this online supervision group is designed to do: provide an encouraging and supportive learning environment for those curious individuals who are interested in exploring how to incorporate creativity and experiential practices into their clinical work with clients.

This online supervision group is designed as an ongoing supplement to my online course,Integrating Creativity & Experiential Arts into Clinical Work”, a "hands on" course that will teach you the tricks of the trade when it comes to using creativity with clients.

What support will you receive from this course?

In this group you will:

  • find a safe and supportive space where you can grow your therapeutic skills through the use of creativity and experiential interventions;
  • get feedback on clinical situations that may feel challenging in your practice with clients;
  • also receive additional monthly email consultations with Kate, one per group supervision session that you attend;
  • gain full access to Kate's library of articles and resources related to using creativity and experiential arts in clinical practice.

Who is this course for?

The group is open to professionals who are interested in growing their therapeutic skills through the use of creativity and experiential exercises in their clinical practice with clients.

The group is also open to students who are training in mental health or helping fields and interested in expanding their expertise in these areas.

All are welcome. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to learn.
