Opportunities to Work With Elpizo

Counselling Services for the Greater Toronto Area

Work With Elpizo

For Therapists, Counsellors and More…

Elpizo Counselling Services is an expanding multi-disciplinary private practice of health professionals who provide psychotherapy, counselling, health and educational services to communities throughout the Greater Toronto Area.

We are looking for like-minded partnerships with counsellors, psychotherapists, social workers, educators, and trainers in Toronto and the surrounding areas to meet the needs of our growing clientele.

Working in a group practice is invaluable to private practitioners and more so to new therapists that need the continuous support and guidance in this field. You will be part of a monthly peer supervision group where you will develop more skills and interventions, hone in on counselling skills and have the opportunity to exchange, share ideas, and glean information. In addition your profile will be included on our optimized website for increased visibility.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Have a graduate degree in counselling or equivalent
  • Have a liability insurance
  • Have an office location in Ontario

Applications should be forwarded to Ruth Baah-Gyebi, Practice Director at ruth@elpizocounselling.com.

Kind words from a previous Intern here at Elpizo Counselling…

Intern at Elpizo“Serving my practicum at Elpizo Counselling Services has been the highlight of my psychotherapy training journey. The professional and supportive environment at Elpizo Counselling is invaluable, and has made my placement experience a positive one. I have been afforded the space to “dive right in” and do serious and relevant work. I am encouraged to realize my full potential as a psychotherapist in training.
My supervisors Elvis and Ruth bring their years of experience, their love of helping others and their training know-how to everything they do. They provide both hands on psychotherapy skills, mentoring, as well as technical and organizational skills training. I feel valued and supported in every way through my placement.”
