In need of support?
Courtney Smyth, M.Ed., C.C.C., RP
I am currently away on maternity leave and am unfortunately not accepting new clients. I will resume my practice in winter 2021.
Hi, I am Courtney Smyth, a Registered Psychotherapist and Certified Canadian Counsellor. My office is located in Nepean, and I serve clients from all over Ottawa, Nepean, Kanata, Stittsville and Barrhaven who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, anger, and grief (among many other concerns.)
Pursuing counselling for the first time or at any point in one’s life can be an intimidating process. My priority as a counsellor is to make this experience less overwhelming by being transparent about the process, identifying the challenges, making goals, and creating a plan for change that you are comfortable with. We will explore the situations that have brought you to counselling, discuss how you have been coping so far and start to take on new perspectives by understanding the way your emotions and thoughts are impacting how you feel and behave.
In counselling you will have a safe and confidential environment to explore all of these things. I want to support you in moving forward with your decision to get help, start to make meaningful change in your life, and most importantly to begin feeling better.
I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions you may have about starting the journey of counselling.
