Liane’s approach in supervision is to be a mentor/coach to help supervisees reach their full potentials as psychotherapists utilizing encouragement, and building confidence through teaching with a positive, affirmative and constructive style.
Psychotherapy is an encore career for Liane Wood following over 25 years as a registered insurance broker and chartered insurance professional. During her career in insurance, Liane spent significant time in management positions including holding ownership in two different independent insurance brokerages. She has extensive experience in designing and implementing processes and workflows.
Since becoming a psychotherapist, Liane has focused on creating processes and workflows for psychotherapy practice in her own practice by taking numerous courses in clinical documentation, ethics and psychotherapy practice issues, and has infused this with her past career experience. In addition to clinical supervision, she now helps other psychotherapists with systems and processes in their practices. In 2021, Liane created and ran the highly successful RP Best Business Practices Seminar Series through the Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists (OSRP) and is the lead developer and creator of OSRP’s Mentorship Program launched in 2022.
Individual: Working one on one with Liane to discuss client cases. Individual supervision sessions normally run for one hour at a time.
Dyadic: Working with Liane, yourself and one other supervisee discussing client cases. Dyadic supervision sessions normally run for one hour at a time with the cost being split equally between the two supervisees. Dyadic supervision helps supervisees save on costs of supervision with expanded learning opportunities by hearing about other client cases.
Group: Working in a small group (up to 8 supervisees) with Liane meeting weekly or bi-weekly for 90 minutes discussing client cases. Group supervision helps supervisees save on costs of supervision with expanded learning opportunities by hearing about other client cases.
**Please note: No identifying information is permitted to be disclosed when discussing client cases to maintain client confidentiality.
