Self-Led Healing in a Broken-Hearted World: Expanding Clinical Competence

Welcome! Do you work with clients struggling to make sense of loss, trauma or suffering? Are you learning IFS and longing to deepen your practice? Do you want to be part of a vibrant healing community dedicated to professional and personal growth? If so, you are invited to join Lara's virtual Professional Consultation Group, Self-Led Healing in a Broken-Hearted World: Expanding Clinical Competence.

Together we will expand your understanding of IFS and Meaning Making models of care, explore challenging cases where you feel stuck or blended with critic parts, allow space for personal healing related to your work, and build a supportive community of like-minded healers!

Our work is demanding and often isolating. No one can do this important work alone! HELP is near! Consultation groups offer a safe space for you to share clinical questions, vulnerability, victories and growth. Your consultation group experience will help you be more Self-led, effective and confident in clinical work.
