Join Our Team

How would you like the best of both worlds?

At the Bayridge Family Center, my goal has been to diligently develop a program that envelopes the best of ‘private practice’ and the best of working on ‘a dynamic multi-disciplinary team’. After working in this industry for over seventeen years, I have found that many counsellors desire the experience and independence of private practice. However, I have also found that after they have accomplished this milestone, they realize it is lonely, isolating and just a lot of work, especially all of the administration, marketing and accounting.

You can be Part of a Multi-disciplined Professional Team

At Bayridge we have developed a plan that allows therapists and counsellors to do what they do best, work with clients or patients. At Bayridge we have created the administration, accounting and marketing infrastructure so you can focus on the care of your clients. As well, you will be part of a multi-disciplinary team that will stretch you and allow for mutual support.

We are stronger together! Let’s be honest, this is a business. It is competitive. After running this center for over 25 years we understand how competitive it is. Most of our counselors are able to come under supervision and, therefore, access clients’ insurance in order to build their practice. Our strength is our team. As a team we have greater influence and impact. We reach further and wider.

However, we have also retained your ability to stay in private practice. Most of the therapists act as ‘independent practitioners’. Hence, all the business advantages of being in your own business are available to you. This works extremely well. We really believe it is a Win-Win-Win for the therapist, client, and Bayridge Team.

Human assets are…

Top managers have never lost their fondness for declaring that people are the ‘greatest asset’ that their corporations possess.

At Bayridge, ‘Taking Care of People’ Is Our Business!

 Let us help you take care of your people so they can take care of your business! 

Bayridge has programs that will significantly save you time and money!

Let’s Talk!

The stock value of human ability in the capacity to perform work so as to produce business value is the definition of ‘human asset’.

The achievement of today’s organizations greatly depends on the efficiency of teams. To achieve objectives, teamwork is required. A combination of knowledge, proficiency and abilities are needed if they are to be performed fruitfully since many responsibilities have become more complex. The responsibilities are likely to be performed successfully with the right team of individuals in place since often such merits are not found in one individual alone. Winning the heart and spirit of your employees provides your business with some of its greatest assets.

However, like the volatility of the stock market, the human asset has its ability to react to the global and local stressors of life. Whether those stressors are within the culture of the work place or in the relationships of the work place, the performance of your employees may be reduced. We don’t even have to mention the huge added stress that can come with being responsible for a marriage, family, children, caring for the elderly, poor health and tight finances.

One in five North Americans will experience a depressive episode within his lifetime. Once experienced it will tend to be re-experienced without early detection. Effective treatment is critical.

Stress is stressful! It can be stressful to meet the demands of a fast-paced business and its need to compete in a global downturned market.

When we include what technology has done to speed up calculations, communication, research and project management, it is no wonder there seems to be an epidemic of anxiety and panic disorders. In a word internal skills have not kept up to the increased stress on our bodies and relationships. If we want to win, we need to assist our employees to be better equipped to stay in the game.
