Velma Noble View Specialties


Velma brings a warm, compassionate, and hopeful therapeutic stance to client work. She employs a holistic approach (mind, body, and soul) that is equally balanced with a practical, strength-based approach. By forming safe therapeutic relationships with her clients, Velma helps facilitates a healing process that brings relief or resolution to distressing emotions or life situations.

Primary areas of clinical focus include depression and anxiety, grief and loss, major life transitions, stress management, marital enrichment, divorce care, family communication, spiritual care, empowerment and assertiveness training. Velma offers individual, couple, family counselling, services as well as a number of unique group programs, such as phototherapy and CALM (a unique program for individuals recovering from marital separation). Counselling Connections was established by Velma in 2004.

Velma holds a Master of Arts degree in Pastoral Psychology and Counselling. She has full membership status with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association as a Certified Clinical Counsellor (CCC).  She completed a BA in Sociology and Economics from Acadia University, and a Supportive Counselling diploma from Mount Royal University. Velma has membership with the Professional Agrologist Assn. of Canada (PAg), and brings twenty years of experience as a financial advisor and life coach. 

Relational therapy and mindful loving concepts inform my work as a marital therapist. Marital enrichment therapy is built around key relational concepts that facilitate harmonization, rather than adherence to compromise. Mindful loving speaks to unconditional positive regard that is generated from the daily practices of attention, acceptance, appreciation, affection, and allowing.

Passionate about maintaining personal wellness with an active, balance lifestyle, Velma greatly enjoys time spent in nature. While she shares a deep appreciation of living in the glorious splendour of Western Canada, she continues to maintain close connections with her Maritime roots. Every day is an amazing experience for Velma as the mother of two vibrant red-headed daughters who help keep her on her toes.
