The Team Consultation is for all therapists who work at Creative Healing. It is a non-negotiable part of our practice. 

Our work is hard, so why do it alone?

Empathy. Learning. Community. These are only some of the values of our time together in the Consult group. 

Tune in to the episode to learn how we can make the most of our weekly meetups.

4 Key Takeaways 

  1. Meetings are weekly at noon every Thursday and will take place on zoom.
  2. It is our culture to collaborate and gain insights from each other.  
  3. Our feedback rounds always start with positive reinforcement. It’s really hard to be vulnerable and positive reinforcement helps create a safe space. Let’s celebrate vulnerability with positive reinforcement!
  4. If you want to start your own team consult group keep in mind that people will probably resist it at first. That being said, it will end up paying off because team consult groups are a great way to get everyone on the same page and create harmony, trust, and friendship at work.
