About Supria - Owner, Artist, Clinical Social Worker and Facilitator - BSW, MSW, RSW

Supria has been a social worker, community developer and artist/facilitator for 20+ years, graduating with her Bachelor of Social Work from McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and her Masters of Social Work, with University of Waterloo, Renison College.  She is a registered social worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) and a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers (OASW).  

She has facilitated numerous group processes, as well as individual sessions using creativity for health and well-being. Specifically, her work has included working with post-traumatic stress, anxiety, depression and gender based violence.  Supria has also conducted a variety of community development program meetings, events, conferences, workshops and team retreats, within the social service and health sectors for both rural and urban settings. Supria has discovered that by pulling together her passion for the arts and creativity with her facilitation processes provides an environment for a meaningful transformative experience. 

All programs are designed to include the use of creativity and play and by doing so clients are encouraged to discover more about themselves, their program, team and group; where an outcome of balance and wellness can be enhanced. Creativity and art as a modality can assist with personal insight, team building, addressing issues, by assisting groups to move from point A to point B, as it can encourage those non-verbal assets to be recognized. 

The experiential model is key as it values the participants knowledge and can enhance learning and meaning by the learner themselves creating self-sustaining awareness, reflection and change.

Her repertoire of facilitation skills, tools and processes include "Open Space Technology", "Basic Conversation Methods", "Popular Education Strategies" and other experiential creative processes.  She values the energy that comes from group processes and believes that we are enriched while immersed in the creative processes both in group and individual settings.
