Welcome to Human Nature Counselling!

 
About Me
My name is Gabrielle DeMone but I go by Brie - like the cheese:) I am a Registered Counselling Therapist – Candidate with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists (NSCCT). I am also a Canadian Certified Counsellor – Qualifying with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).  I hold a Master of Arts Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University and a Master of Applied Health Services Research from Dalhousie University. As a registered counselling therapist, I follow the code of ethics and standards of practice of the NSCCT and CCPA. I offer individual counselling services via phone and secure video modalities.
  
My Counselling Philosophy
 
Life circumstances and experiences can lead us to develop coping strategies which can get in the way of achieving our goals or living the kind of life we would wish for ourselves. It's human nature! I provide my clients with a safe, welcoming and empathetic space where coping strategies that aren’t working can be explored and new strategies can be developed and implemented.
 
Inclusivity and acceptance are my core counselling values. I celebrate families and partnerships of all shapes, sizes and compositions, each with their unique beauties and challenges. Each of us exist within dynamic systems of complex relationships which influence our thoughts, feelings and perspectives and that counselling can offer a venue for exploration and examination of the impacts of those systems on us and our role within these systems. I believe in each individual's capacity to thrive within those systems and often times in spite of those systems.
 
My Counselling Approach
 
I believe that my clients are the experts in themselves and what will work best for them. For that reason, I offer my clients a range of therapeutic modalities through an integrative trauma-informed therapeutic approach using evidence based practices. I believe in engaging and empowering my clients at all stages of the therapeutic process. I see myself as a guide along your path to wellness, offering you tools to support your journey.

 Fees

Individual Counselling — $100/per hour* session, plus gst (*1 hour of counselling includes a 50-minute session and 10 minutes of documentation time.)
 
I believe that everyone deserves affordable and accessible counselling. If the standard rate is not affordable for you, please talk to me about what reduced rate appointment spots may be available. Please note that due to high demand for lower rate spots, you may be placed on a wait list until a spot becomes available.
 Counselling fees may be reimbursed by extended health benefits plans, depending on your plan coverage, and the counsellor you are working with. Please consult your benefits package to find out details on how much is covered, and the required credentials of the professional. I direct bill Medavie Blue Cross.
