“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.” – Ryunosuke Satoro
Laura Bradley is currently facilitating 3 supervision groups.
Laura has 30 years in the field of counselling and group facilitation , as a Registered Counselling Supervisor and a Master Therapeutic Counsellor, with ACCT and register Counsellor with ACTA. She founded her practice group in 2005 based on her desire to help her clients and her passion for training and developing counsellors. She truly believes that each counsellor comes into supervision with their own knowing and expertise. She works collaboratively to support counsellors to tap into their knowledge and provides practical tools based on her years of counselling and supervision experience.
Laura has found group supervision to be an integral part of being a healthy therapist. Putting time aside to reflect and share her thoughts and feelings with a group of peers continues to be a place of growth and self care for her as a professional counsellor.

What Counsellors Say
“When I entered private practice, Laura was the first person I contacted for supervision. Laura always asks great questions that support me to be in the best position to support my clients. I know that Laura will be mindful of considering my ethical and legal responsibilities, as well my therapeutic goals. She offers a great perspective and real ability to help me move forward with clients I am feeling stuck or unsure of. Each time I complete a supervision session with Laura I feel re-inspired; whether to try something I hadn’t considered before or to relax in knowing that I am on track. She makes private practice less scary.” – C.B.
Each group runs for a term of 3-6 months at time. All group members commit for the whole term.
Meetings are held online via Zoom with the same group participants each month (i.e. no drop-ins).
Over the course of the term, all participants will have chances to present a client case or choose a topic for discussion. Everyone will be encouraged to give their feedback and perspective to their peers. Supervision groups are an interactive experience.
There’s also the opportunity to address a specific topic, determined by the group’s needs or wishes, such as:
- loss and grief
- working with clients who have a challenging time feeling their feelings
- high conflict couples
- depression/lack of affect, and
- anxiety or hyper arousal.
There is also the opportunity to address and discuss additional topics, such as:
- note taking
- administrative best practices and issues
- leadership, and
- goals for professional and practice development
Topics are decided by the group as needed.
The meetings are two hours and you can claim the full two hours as supervision.
$150 per monthly meeting. However, if you pay for the whole term upfront we offer a 5% discount. You can make payments by credit card or etransfer.
The price is $150.00 per person per session. A non-refundable deposit of 15% of your total fee is required as soon as possible and we will deduct your non-refundable amount on each session for individuals paying on a month-to-month basis.
If you are unable to attend the group for an unforeseen reason, you will be charged the full price; however, the option to complete a homework exercise for reflection and submission will be provided. Once submitted, 1 group supervision hour will be accredited to you.
If you want to discontinue the term before it ends you will need to notify Laura at least 7 days before the next supervision group and you will be charged for 50% of the remaining dates as we can not fill your spot once the group has started.
