Student Opportunities: Practicum Placements and Volunteering

New Roots Therapy offers volunteer positions and practicum placements to qualified college and university students.  To date, we have had students on our team from the University of Toronto, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, and Yorkville University.

Our Master's level training counsellors are available to see clients at a reduced rate.  We believe that clinical placements are a great opportunity for both training counsellors, who have the opportunity to practice their skills and further their knowledge in a supportive learning environment, and our clients, who have the opportunity to access high quality counselling services at a lower cost.  Our experienced psychotherapists, as well as our team psychologists, provide extensive supervision to our training counsellors so clients can be assured of receiving excellent care during the course of counselling.  Please contact our office for more information on how to book an appointment with one of our training counsellors.
