for schools, businesses, and not-for-profit organizations
We’ll come to you and support your team in learning some new skills in healing from burnout, creating a positive mental-health culture, or working through Brené Brown’s Dare to Lead Program or something we collaborate to create just for you.
Many of our counsellors offer group sessions exploring topics like grief, burnout, boundaries, and self-actualization. These are offered both in-person and virtually and are an affordable way to receive support for life transitions.
for therapists and practicum students
Part of our commitment to the fields of psychology and social work is to support practicum students as they learn and this also affords us an opportunity to make counselling accessible to our community, as our students work at either reduced rates or on a pro-bono basis. We generally have these students available to support clients throughout the year.
Trauma & Crisis Response
When the worst happens and it’s difficult to carry on, our trained grief and trauma therapists can be on-site within a matter of days (and sometimes even hours) to support organizations, groups and businesses as their members process traumatic events like a sudden death or violent event.
End of Life Care
Families and individuals who have experienced a recent death are often in a state of shock, making it difficult to navigate the multiple decisions necessary to plan a memorial to honour the person their loved one. Living Bridges has skilled Celebrants who assist clients in planning a meaningful celebration of life service in Kamloops.
Our team will facilitate family gatherings for memory sharing, assistance in crafting a life tribute (or eulogy),officiate at a celebration of the person’s life, and provide follow up care for grieving families. On our team are ordained ministers who can provide spiritual care for people who are dying and are also able to provide holistic bereavement counselling for family members who are working through the many issues related to death.
