Momentum is proud to be a high-quality teaching facility. Momentum offers a unique and rich learning environment for students in graduate level counselling studies which is distinct from other placement sites.
At Momentum, students work in a team setting led by a Clinical Supervisor who facilitates session planning, debriefing, and feedback for every counselling session.
We use direct observation, co-counselling, and video recording to provide valuable feedback and robust discussion with other team members. Supervision is built into each shift, and far exceeds the minimum requirements for most universities.
We operate from a Solution Focused Model with a strength-based philosophy which is empirically supported. Students never work alone; and receive a solid foundation in strong ethical practice.
We offer additional learning opportunities in group therapy. Students are also assigned a small caseload of clients to provide up to eight sessions of ongoing counselling with individuals, couples, or families.
Momentum provides clinical internships for graduate level students from a variety of disciplines, including but not limited to: social work, psychology, and counselling.
