Counselling Services in Dartmouth, Halifax

At Kinesis Health Associates we recognize the importance of mental and emotional health.

We are very pleased to offer counselling therapy, with Deborah Hubble Smith, Counsellor, MC, RCT-C and Brian MacAulay, as part of our health and wellness services at our clinic.

Why Counselling?

The challenges you are experiencing are not “who you are.” You are greater than a set of problems. Together with a Counselling Therapist you can examine each challenge, and evaluate how you got to where you are. Through this exploration, you will discover the strengths you have developed along the way in order to overcome your challenges.

Rooted in a holistic, strengths-based approach, Denise believes that everyone is the expert of their own lives, and that therapy can offer practical tools and resources to help meet life challenges. Her practice is both eclectic – selectively applying techniques from a variety of approaches to best fit your needs, and integrative – combining different approaches and fusing them together. Denise uses a blend of evidence-based practices drawing on various methods from contemporary Western modalities to Eastern meditative practices of mindfulness.

Denise has a Master of Social Work from Laurentian University, Bachelor of Arts from MSVU, and post-secondary certificates / diplomas in Counselling, Adult Education, Managing Workplace Conflict, Leadership Development, and Human Resources, and she is trained in various treatment modalities. For over 20 years, Denise has been working in the social care field.

Denise’s areas of practice include individual therapy, couples therapy, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, life transitions (divorce, marriage, caregiving, moving), workplace and career issues, PTSD and trauma, stress management, and others.
