Services for Therapists

Marie-José has supported and mentored many therapists over the years, whether as a teacher, consultant, mentor, or therapist. The opportunities both for professional and personal growth available to therapists are listed below.


The Centre for Expressive Therapy offers unique learning opportunities for mental health professionals working in a variety of capacities (counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, social workers, art, play and expressive arts therapists, family therapists, behavioural consultants, etc..)

Although the courses are at a post graduate level and may earn learning credits towards your professional goal, experienced therapists who are interested in incorporating the approach and methods used in Holistic Expressive Therapy are welcome to attend and consult.

Marie-José is particularly interested in mentoring therapists committed to learning and adapting her approach to healing, Holistic Expressive Therapy, An Integrative Approach to Helping Maltreated Children, within their specific profession and area of interest.

The different forms of training offered at the centre include:

- Intensive Seminars that take place generally over a 3 to 6 day period in a small group of 8
  participants maximum.
- Individualized Seminars, for those who need to come at a specific time, either individually
  or with colleagues with a common professional focus.
- Workshops in Other Locations are also offered on a regular basis at the Justice Institute of
  British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada as well as in any other location upon request.
- Consultation is offered face to face and long distance, not only for play therapists or art
  therapists seeking professional registration or certification, but also for any mental health
  professional wanting support in their work, whether working with children, youth or

Personal Professional Development Retreats

For therapists who want to focus specifically on their personal/professional development issues, Personal /Professional Development Retreats are offered.

Therapy and Healing Retreats

Because, like any one else, therapists may experience a variety of stresses and difficult experiences, helping professionals may seek therapy either on an ongoing basis or, if you live far from Vancouver Island, in the form of a healing retreat, followed by phone sessions.

In whatever form support may be needed, Marie-José is committed to helping helpers on their journey.

The Centre for Expressive Therapy is accredited both by the Canadian Association for Play Therapy and The British Columbia Play Therapy Association.  Please visit their websites for more details as to their specific requirements.
