ABOUT ME

Amiee Wilson - Psychotherapist/Counsellor

Hi, my name is Amiee Wilson. I obtained my Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. I am a Certified Canadian Counsellor –Qualifying (CCC-Q) with the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) and Registered Counselling Therapist – Candidate (RCT-C) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists (NSCCT).
I came from 10 years in the corporate world. After 10  years I decided to change my career to become a Holistic Nutrition professional. I worked for over 5 years as a Registered Holistic Nutrition Consultant (RHN) in my clinic, Namaste Holistic Wellness & Nutrition, teaching clients about optimal nutrition and wellness. 
 
I am very interested in the gut-brain connection and how it plays a role in mental health issues like anxiety and depression. I am also passionate about the mind, body and spirit and how these factors require balance to achieve optimal wellness.
 
 I use a flexible counselling approach when working with individuals, couples and families experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, as well as other mental health issues.

 

The People's Counselling Clinic

I was supervised by Robert S. Wright for over 500 hours at The People’s Counselling Clinic, a non-profit, pro-bono mental health clinic in Halifax, NS. This clinic provides direct services and public education focusing on issues of trauma, race, sex and gender.  I worked with under-served populations including victims and perpetrators of sexual and intimate partner violence using a forensic mental health approach to practice.  The clinic’s focus is male-identified individuals and has created ManTalk, a group for male-identified individuals who have experienced sexual violence.

I have experience offering mental health supports in the following areas at The People’s Counselling Clinic:
  • Trauma, including complex trauma stemming from severe abuse, neglect, violence, and other adverse childhood experiences.
  • Patterns of abuse in relationships.
  • Family of origin, attachment, and development.
  • Sexual behaviour problems and use of violence in relationships.
  • Sexual and intimate partner victimization.
