Nancy Blair, M.Ed (Counselling), RCT, CCC, C.Hyp

My therapeutic approach is person-centered and collaborative. Whether you meet with me for one session or many, I want you to go away knowing that I used an approach that suited you and that you feel our time together was ‘well-spent’. I work with people from a range of experiences, cultures, genders, ages, faiths, abilities, and backgrounds. I have extensive experience working with persons with mental and physical health challenges. Issues we may explore together include resilience, making decisions, goal setting, relaxation techniques, healthy living, past and present trauma, changing behavioral patterns, planning transition and/or adapting to change.

I am a Registered Counselling Therapist (RCT) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists (NSCCT) http://nscct.ca and a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) https://www.ccpa-accp.ca . I am also certified in Hypnotherapy and Pet Loss and Bereavement Counselling.

The therapeutic approaches I regularly use include: Client-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Solutions-Based, Career Counselling, Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy, Grief and Loss, and Animal Assisted Pet Loss and Bereavement. I have extensive experience in both individual and group work (counselling, workshops and training). Of late, much of my group work has focused on helping people living with grief and also helping people with anxiety to live and thrive in their lives.

My fee is $100/session for an individual; my fee for group work is determined based on the required work. RCTs are recognized by all the major insurers. However, an employer, union or organization must include RCTs in their health plan in order for an insurance company to pay for work with an RCT. Check with your organization to see if they have taken this step. Any fee you pay on your own can be used as an income tax deduction.

If you have questions about how we might work together, please contact me at nancyblaircounselling@gmail.com.

Please note that this is an animal-friendly office.
