My name is Nadine Tilma (she/her) and my consulting work is at the convergence of balanced leadership, somatics, mindfulness and social justice. I am a graduate of University of Montreal & City University of Seattle and have a special interest in creating healing community spaces and facilitating public discussions about the impacts of oppression & disconnection and the urgency for collective healing & liberation.
My practice providing one-on-one therapy, sitting on the board of Healing in Colour, and facilitating community healing circles has given me extensive insight into the need we all have for collective healing. Using queer, feminist, anti-oppressive and trauma-informed approaches, I offer consulting services to both organizations and individual practitioners, empowering you to create more safe, inclusive and liberated environments for yourselves and your community.
Consultation can be useful for other mental health professionals in offering strategies to address challenges, increasing community resources, exploring other points of entry for therapeutic success and creating space for solidarity and support.
Together we can explore your individual and collective ethics in relation to your work while centering sustainability. This co-created space can be useful in exploring the intersections of trauma-informed practice, social justice, and being in a supportive role. Consultation services can be as minimal as one-time meeting or on-going support.
Interpersonal conflicts can be emotionally, mentally and physically draining especially in the workplace or community setting. I offer services supporting you through these conflicts and building interpersonal skills restoring relationships and strengthening them toward organizational wellness.
Shifting organizational culture takes time. Developing a shared language, common ground, and reflecting with one another through facilitated conversations can be a powerful way to shift how people relate to one another and their work.
My workshops centre on the experiences of equity seeking groups and can help shift your culture toward the embodiment of a more values-centred communal space.
Some examples of workshops I've facilitated to date include: psychological safety, anti-oppression, Black & 2SLGBTQIA+ affinity group support workshop, trauma-informed practices, embodied support skills, and more.
