My name is Ruth Mitchell. I started SoulSpace Counselling Therapy in 2013 because I wanted to offer a service that allows clients to feel comfortable and safe while sharing their story. I believe there is value to each person's story and sharing it can help you to value your own story.
I have my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology as well as a Master of Arts in Physical Activity. I enjoy learning about the connection between our mental and physical health and how this contributes to our overall wellness.
I am a Registered Counselling Therapist with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapistsas well as a Canadian Certified Counsellor with Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).
I have worked with individuals in a variety of settings, including college/university students; children/youth; palliative care, grief, and bereavement (including pets); those involved with victim services; and domestic violence. I also have a background in physical activity and believe in the benefits of holistic healing - one step at a time.
I tend to practice a narrative form of therapy and believe in the power of the present moment. We will work together on the pieces of your story as we discover ways to re-route the trouble that may have stepped into your life. I can also work from a Solution-Focused point of therapy when you do not have a lot of time, but could use some assistance in figuring out what is happening in your life.
It is often difficult to find a therapist with whom you are comfortable talking. At SoulSpace, you are welcome to meet me first via phone or video chat for a free 10 minute consult and determine if this is a good fit for you.
