Jimmy Rose is a Registered Counselling Therapist Candidate (RCT) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists (NSCCT). After graduating from Mount Saint Vincent University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, he went on to complete a MA in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University.
With 22 years in the Canadian Airforce as an Aircraft Maintenance Supervisor, Jimmy brings a vast experience to the Mental Health field and hopes that his attained knowledge and skills can aid others with their struggles in life.
Jimmy believes in a biopsychosocial approach to counselling, with focus on how the interaction between biological, psychological, and social factors impact people. He utilizes a Person-centered approach coupled with DBT, CBT and solution focused models to try to help clients find a path in life that creates purpose and meaning for them. His view is that counselling is a partnership with the client where the main goal is to enable each individual to make positive changes leading to an improved quality of life by learning to take ownership and control of ones decisions.
