This podcast catches up with Kelly Waters-Radcliffe, R. Psych, who was previously employed as our family therapist and clinical supervisor at the Wilderness Treatment at Base Camp program.
Though Kelly spent a number of years away from the study of psychology, his journeys taught him a great deal about the human capacity for change and helped him deepen into his life’s passion: namely, helping to create movement in the lives of people who have for various reasons found themselves ‘stuck.’
Now a registered psychologist, Kelly has provided services to individuals, families and groups presenting with a variety of issues ranging from stress and depression to domestic violence, addiction and eating disorders. Kelly finds that the issues people bring to counseling ‘make sense’ as expressions of human needs. Therapy with Kelly then becomes about locating those needs and working with people to bring forth the inner resources to meet those needs in healthy ways. He is highly influenced by the work of Michael White and Narrative Therapy and has, most recently, become interested in practices of focused attention, such as found in clinical hypnosis and guided meditation, as a way of connecting with inner means for overcoming problems.
