Jenn Smith, MA , RCT, CCC

My education and careers in business, fine arts,  teaching, and counselling have equipped me with a compassionate interest in women's lives and experiences.  Through various stages of life; being a Mum to two grown daughters, a wife (twice!), and living and teaching in both England and Nova Scotia, I have experienced many of life's ups and downs, while attempting to find a healthy balance in life. 

 

Counselling offers a time and safe space for clients to explore, talk, be listened to and begin to know that they are the experts of their own lives.  Using a client-centered, biopsychosocial approach and techniques from cognitive processing therapy, cognitive and dialectical behaviour therapies, and narrative therapy, I will work with you to address issues and reach your goals.

 

My education and designations:

  • Master of Arts, Counselling Psychology (MACP), Yorkville University

  • as a registered counselling therapist (RCT) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists, and

  • as a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC)  with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association

  • Registration and certification ensure adherence to  standards and ethics of practice, and a requirement for ongoing professional development

  • Bachelor of Education (Mount St. Vincent), Bachelor of Fine Arts (NSCAD University) and Bachelor of Secretarial Science (Acadia University)
