"I had the privilege of working with Cécile Rêve over the course of 9 months. We worked closely together as she supervised me as Master’s level Clinical Mental Health Counselor, and Music Therapy Intern. Cecile possesses many talents and attributes that any organization would greatly benefit from and value. As a Supervisor, Cecile has a remarkable ability to listen, motivate, and inspire. She has a nurturing approach as she guides her students towards developing their professional identity. She communicates with clarity, genuineness, integrity, and transparency, which continually earns the respect of her supervisees. Cecile’s conviction for what she does shines through not only in the rapport and trust she develops in her relationships, but is evident by her artistic, and musical talents in which she shows great passion, innovation and skill. She is extremely in tune with those she engages, exhibiting her intellectual prowess, and adeptness in facilitating and maintaining student group cohesion, mutual trust, and respect. I can attest to her ability to foster a spirit of reconciliation, and empathy, which personally, prevented loss of morale for her trainees. Cecile is a remarkable individual and a dedicated professional. I can say honestly and without reservation that it would be my pleasure to work with her as a colleague in the future and I recommend her highly for any organization needing such a transpersonal leader."

For Licensed Mental Health Counselors and Expressive Arts Therapists.
We use Expressive Arts in the supervision process to support your learning, reflection and self-care.
Rituals are necessary to enter and close learning cycles, and to develop a professional identity.
We apply the same body-based principles in supervision than we do in holding space with our clients.
Constructive feedback is provided in a verbal way, as well as with Expressive Arts Therapy tools.
Reflection and visual journaling is an important part of this journey.
Reflection and the meeting needs are the result of a collaboration.
We communicate about and define the Supervisor-Supervisee relationship as a model of relating, an understanding of ethics and creating safety in the learning space.
By developing skills and naming strengths we begin to create a "professional toolbox".
The learning process requires courage, a supervisor's role is to witness and guide you in those times.
Experiencing learning as a playful journey helps us stay centered, take care of ourselves and be good role models.
As learners and as teachers, no matter the learning or teaching style, we learn and practice riding the wave to be present for each moment.
In learning, there are sometimes layers to peel of, and layers to discover and create.
Understanding oneself, what one needs to feel equipped to be a therapist, and what it means to create and hold a therapeutic space for another person requires insight and rigor.
...For self, for our clients, for what we do
Other people's grief may bring up your own grief.
An important part of supervisions's fonction is to provide self-care so that you can keep in perspective what you feel and gain clarity about what your client needs.
Our priority is to help Supervisees find their own voice, discover their professional selves and come into their own.
