Congratulations for getting to the stage where you are ready for CAP supervision. Supervision is a true gift ... for yourself and your clients. Receiving supervision can be an incredible, rewarding experience since the focus of supervision is to elevate your skill level - triple it! It is designed to carefully invite you to reach and exceed your potential.


I offer a very ethical, relational developmental, structured process to supervision to ensure the focus remains on you - helping you identify what you are doing well to help your clients, offering of ideas to help clients even more (e.g., case conceptualization skills), and ensuring you are walking the talk so you protect your passion and wellness.


I have written about supervision. If you are interested,

please take a peek at a couple of my writings:


  • McBride, D. (2008). Supervision issues in family violence cases.                                                                                                   In S. Brooke (Ed.), The use of creative therapies with survivors of domestic                                                                         violence (pp. 321-342). Charles C. Thomas.



  • How I Honour Your Rights As a Customer....
    Before we engage in this educational service you will be briefed on the process and have your questions answered so you can make an informed choice to access my services. Did you know your rights as a customer include, but are not limited to: 1. saying to me, at any time: “I don’t know”, “tell me more”, “I am not sure”, “no, that won’t work”, “sure”, “pass”, and “I feel ____”,. At any time, you can also end the meeting &/or our consent agreement. I also have these same rights. 2. feeling “I have your back”. It is my very firm intention to offer you a confidential space where you feel supported and to leave our meeting with some new ideas as well as new options to ponder. ​ 3. remaining completely in charge of what you do in your career. You have the full freedom to modify or reject any of my offerings and ideas. ​ ​IMPORTANT NOTE: At all times you remain in charge of what you decide to do in your own practice. Educational-Coaching support services, with Dawn, are regarded as an educational service where Dawn is NOT representing any regulatory body, training association, or counselling organization. Thus, you are expected to critically reflect upon any of Dawn's/DPS comments and to use what fits–accept, reject, or modify–according to your counselling practice and style, agency expectations and protocols, your values, and your code of ethics/standards of practice.
  • Are These Meetings Held? Online - yes. In-person - Sure!
    In most cases, you will book your own time slots using Jane. Good news --> Dawn offers a variety of slots during the week and weekend. She is a night owl so there are often late night slots available! If your situation is urgent or is an emergency, then Dawn will be in touch with you ASAP to offer you some meeting options. She aims to move mountains to accommodate you because your situation is urgent, and she wants to be there for you. Meetings are offered in a variety of formats - phone, Zoom Pro video conferencing, and/or in person. Offered 1:1 or in small groups (see the poster). Fees - please see the the poster. ​
