Speaking & Workshops

Mental Health Education ~ Community & Corporate Workshops

We offer customized workplace training to front line staff on mental health related topics.


We offer several formats, to suit your needs; lunch and learns, half-day and full-day workshops and 1 or 2 hour sessions.

Here are some of the topics (alone or combined) we can cover:

  • How to stay safe working with clients facing difficult emotions & tips to de-escalate possibly violent situations

  • Are we saying & doing the right things?

  • What are the resources and community referrals available?

  • Strategies for assessing risk among clients

  • When to provide encouragement vs. counselling

  • Strategies and education on vicarious trauma

  • Having good boundaries in the workplace

  • Supporting staff facing mental health issues

  • Work-life balance


Thank you so much for giving your time, expertise and knowledge to deliver"Compassion Fatigue" at our Atlantic Fall Conference. There was MUCH discussion at every agency following this session. We are all feeling it and we needed the reminder to take care of ourselves and each other.


Thank you,

I have just been on messenger with 4 friends tonight who all attended your talk! So many positive comments and appreciation - we were all very comforted.

Thank you so much,

Sue King


I would like to take a moment to thank and appreciate Ashley for her time with my office. I'm a huge advocate of your team’s practice.

After her wonderful presentation, to my surprise the comments came flooding in - people seemed generally touched and thankful - a few tears and speechlessness from older executives even. I could tell that for some, that chat was the start of something bigger that maybe they had not given themselves permission to think about or act on.


It was like magic to witness minds being opened even if just for a half an hour and I want you ALL to know from a client’s point of view that what you do every single day MATTERS beyond words. You are changing lives. 

I know I am certainly a better human and this city is a better place because of the work you do!
