Peer Consultation & Social Justice

For affirming, inclusive, anti-oppressive therapists

  • Virtual Meeting

Service Description

Monthly meetings to discuss our clinical work with an anti-oppressive and social justice framework. Includes a range of therapeutic approaches, such as EMDR, OEI, and somatic therapies. This group is run by a critical psychologist and anti-oppressive therapist. We use a non-pathologising approach that critically examines the role of power and oppression in psychology, therapy, trauma, and healing. - Inclusion & Accessibility We welcome neurodivergent communication, such as tics, stuttering, swearing, interrupting, info-dumping etc. We do not use the Zoom raise hand feature. You do not need to make eye-contact or look at your screen. Feel free to stim. You are welcome to use non-verbal communication, such as the chat function, if that is more comfortable for you. Live close-captioning is available. You do not have to participate or contribute if you don't want to. Our groups are limited to a maximum of 5 participants to allow for a supportive and non-intimidating space. We welcome the socially anxious. - Soft Start and End Times You can arrive up to 15 minutes after the start time without missing core content. You can leave at any time and for any reason. - Privacy and Confidentiality Our sessions are not recorded or shared afterwards, so you can feel more comfortable about asking questions and being on camera (if you want to). These groups are confidential, please maintain your clients' confidentiality if discussing your work and the confidentiality of other members of the group. - Safe(r) Space We do not tolerate hate speech or aggressive behaviour (e.g. racism, xenophobia, transphobia, homophobia, biphobia, sexism, ableism, and classism). We are happy to answer questions and help those who are working on unlearning harmful 'norms'. Mistakes are fine, hate is not. Please check our Code of Conduct before attending (it is under 'Home' on our main menu at the top of this page). - Triggers As a trauma-centred organisation run by a survivor of violence and abuse, we also recognise the balance between talking about potentially upsetting or triggering topics and preventing upset and distress. Please note that this is not the same as avoiding difficult conversations because they are uncomfortable. Some of our members have lived experiences of the kinds of oppression we discuss and it's important for these groups to be educational and supportive, not retraumatising.
