This report outlines my practicum experience at Family Service Regina in the Counselling Unit. I chose to focus on two counselling approaches: cognitive behavioral therapy with individuals and emotionally focused therapy with couples. Themes that have emerged in the practicum setting include mindfulness, anti-oppressive social work practice, bearing witness to client healing, and empathy and compassion in professional practice. I will also include a discussion of boundaries and vulnerability as effective tools for self-care and growth both personally and professionally. Implications for future social work practice, implications for Family Service Regina as an agency and my learning as an emerging counselling practitioner are highlighted and woven into the experience of working with clients and family systems on an interpersonal level.
