Prospect Counselling + Training is a POC-led counselling practice dedicated to providing accessible and exceptional counselling to SDQTBIPOC+ communities while disrupting the capitalist values currently upholding standard clinical training programs. Rather than building wealth for practice owners, proceeds from services provided support your comprehensive justice-oriented training, thereby enhancing the services you provide, while funding projects for collective healing within the community.
Along with access to theoretical and empirical foundations on each of the systems that affect our society and the folx we work with, our program provides dedicated training on justice-oriented practice from a myriad of community trainers. Our goal is to help you gain a comprehensive foundational knowledge base and then support you in turning that theory into practice so that you can build practical skills for practicing from a justice-oriented lens.
We are uninvited settlers occupying the stolen, unceded, ancestral territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and S’ólh Téméxw (Stó:lō) peoples.
Our relationship with these lands dictates our commitment to understanding the ongoing impacts of colonization and decolonizing our practices in and out of the counselling room.
Students begin their practicum throughout the year typically around January, May, and September. At this time, we are accepting students who are looking for a supplementary/secondary site.
