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 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 and moving within our energy. 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.
