An implied obligation inherent in the Canadian Psychological Association’s code of ethics is that reflective practice strategies are required to properly respond to the critical need for examination of the influence of personal and social factors on therapists. This project demonstrates one such approach using an arts-based heuristic design. Photography and writing are used to explore the question who am I as a counsellor? The point of departure for addressing the question is living inside the box versus living outside the box. Thoughts, feelings and emotions will be noted during and after photography shoots, culminating in a creative synthesis. Empirical support for the use of photography and therapeutic writing in reflective practice will be provided.
