What is The Truth Clinic + What Are Truth Fairies? Click here to find out more!

We need to be talking to each other more about the ordinariness of the ups and downs of life, encourage people to seek out credible resources in the community that can help them move ahead.

The Truth Clinics are a way of encouraging people to talk about anything that’s on their minds/ how they’re feeling, that they’d like to talk about with a health professional for 15 minutes. We don’t make diagnoses, or prescribe drugs, they are conducted in a public space, but in an area in which only the person and the “Truth Fairy” can hear each other.

The Truth Fairies are all health professionals, and who have participated in a Clown Healing Workshop (learn more about how to become a Truth Fairy under Workshops), where they have learned the principles of brief therapeutic encounters and ways to incorporating them into their clinical practice. Truth Fairies come to people with an open heart, and a willingness to listen without judgement; they are solution-oriented rather than problem-focused, helping identify strengths, resilience, and may offer suggestions, advice, comfort, even a new perspective.
