HMC is committed to challenging the standards of practice and pushing the boundaries of excellence for their clients, team, and the industry as a whole.
ABOUT THE CLINICAL TEAM
The clinical team is made up of highly skilled and relatable early-mid-career clinicians from various disciplines including psychology, social work, counselling, and play therapy. These clinicians play a key role in shaping perceptions of HMC as an engaging practice for children, youth, and young adults. With a broad range of experiences and specialties, HMC’s approach to supervision and collaboration ensures the highest quality services for every client that walks through the door.
HMC emphasise connection and community. The workplace culture, time invested in building relationships, focus on shared goals, and flat management structure has helped to foster a tight-knit team. HMC clinicians routinely work together to offer best-practice solutions to their clients. They employ a holistic approach to ensure clients are equipped with a range of tools and bolstered by their support system. They also connect with their clients through a range of methods – cosy consult rooms, access to fidgets and other sensory toys, and the use of creative approaches that incorporate clients’ interests, play, art, and animals. HMC clinicians advocate for their clients and walk alongside each of them on their “pathways to better”.
HMC clinicians love what they do and are excellent at doing it!
