Hey there, I’m Amiee Wilson, and I’m really excited to connect with you. My background has led me to earn a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. I’m proud to be a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) recognized by the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and a Registered Counselling Therapist – Candidate (RCT-C) supported by the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists (NSCCT).
After a decade in the corporate world, I decided to take a new path. I began my journey as a Registered Holistic Nutrition Consultant (RHN) at my place, Namaste Holistic Wellness & Nutrition, and later transitioned into the field of Psychology. I’ve had the privilege of helping people understand the importance of good nutrition and overall well-being.
I’m really intrigued by the connection between the gut and brain and how it affects our mental health, especially when it comes to things like anxiety and depression. I’m also passionate about the balance between mind, body, and spirit – it’s the key to feeling your best.
In my work, I use a holistic approach that considers the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual parts of your well-being. It’s like a puzzle, and all these pieces fit together to create a picture of your overall health and happiness.
I had the amazing opportunity to learn under Robert S. Wright for more than 500 hours at The People’s Counselling Clinic, a caring non-profit mental health spot in Halifax, NS.
This clinic is all about helping people directly and spreading knowledge about important topics like trauma, race, gender, and relationships. During my time there, I focused on supporting underserved groups, including both survivors and those involved in sexual and partner violence. I used a thoughtful approach based on forensic mental health methods. One big focus at the clinic is on male-identified individuals, and I was part of ManTalk, a support group for guys who’ve faced sexual violence.
At The People’s Counselling Clinic, I gained experience in helping with:
1. Trauma: This includes experiences like abuse, neglect, and violence in childhood.
2. Relationships: I worked with people dealing with abuse patterns in relationships, family issues, and personal growth.
3. Sexual Health: I addressed concerns about sexual behavior and relationship violence.
4. Support for Survivors: I was there for survivors of sexual and partner violence, helping them find strength on their healing journey.
My time there was truly meaningful and has deepened my dedication to promoting understanding, resilience, and well-being.
