IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL COUNSELLING THERAPY IN HALIFAX
Life can be challenging. We all need support at times. As a counselling therapist I provide a safe and supportive space for you to explore what needs your attention. I walk with you on your journey helping you move closer to yourself, heal what needs healing, or shift out of patterns that no longer serve you.
Hi, I'm Andréa, a Halifax-based counselling therapist.
I help individuals overcome what is holding them back from enjoying a satisfying life experience. My clients find that anxiety, stress, depression, issues with food, and general dissatisfaction keep them stuck and unable to move toward the life they desire.
I am a licensed Registered Counselling Therapist- Candidate (RCT-C) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists and I hold a Masters of Education degree in Counselling from Acadia University. I completed my clinical internship at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design supporting young adults in navigating mental health, identity, relationship issues and stress. Prior to counselling, I supported individuals to overcome binge eating and heal their relationship with food.
My approach to counselling lies on the foundation that healing and growth happen as we safely move toward ourselves and our experiences in a gentle and curious way. As we become closer to self, we will be rewarded with insight, awareness, understanding, and choice.
In my sessions I draw from a variety of evidence-based approaches including mindfulness-based therapies, cognitive therapies, and somatic-informed therapies. My work is trauma-informed and attachment-based, meaning that I hold space for the powerful healing effect that a safe and secure therapeutic relationship between client and counsellor can offer. I have certification in Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping) therapy, and have attended online conferences on trauma and eating disorders.
