Clinical Consultation Group:

Vermont Counseling Network Supporting Therapists

Clinical consultation for mental health therapists is a collaborative process where therapists seek guidance and feedback from a seasoned clinician or expert about their cases or therapeutic approaches. Our consultation aims to ensure the provision of effective and ethical care, enhance and support the therapist's clinical skills, and address any challenges faced in the therapeutic relationship. Consultation serves as a supportive and educational tool, promoting continuous professional development and safeguarding client welfare.

Here's what you can expect from Vermont Counseling Network’s Consultation Group:
  • Personalized Guidance: Recognizing that every therapist’s journey is distinct, we focus on delivering tailored advice to address the specific hurdles you encounter. Topics can include: case consultation, networking and resource development, business management tools, and marketing your practice.  Anything therapist practice related is fair game!
  • Collaborative Learning: Group sessions provide a platform for open dialogue on rural community or Vermont practice based situations. It's a space to exchange experiences, gain insights from peers, and collectively find better resolutions.
  • Ethical Navigation: Our profession comes with ethical challenges and dilemmas. We will explore these challenges, especially related to practicing in a small state, ensuring you make decisions that uphold the highest professional standards. This support is designed to help you build confidence in your practice, but it also protects you from possible liabilities.
  • Staying Ahead: Therapy is an ever-evolving field. With us, you're not just reacting to new trends; you’re proactively understanding and integrating them, keeping your practice both current and competent.
Looking for a space where you can hone your skills, meet like-minded folks, find solutions to challenges, learn how to thrive in a close-knit community, and ensure you're making choices that align with your ethics and values?

Our group consultation offers more than just support; it provides a protective layer, minimizing risks while maximizing potential. We will share our knowledge, collaborate and brainstorm.  The goal of consultation is to nurture therapists’ professional growth to not only excel in their craft but also stand tall in the face of professional challenges.  Each consultation group is documented and notes stored in a HIPAA compliant record.
