Dec21578 Counselling Service Provider of the Year – Nova Scotia Counselling can improve mental health, self-esteem, and instil a sense of control over one’s life. It can also improve communication skills to ensure that needs are being met, resulting in a more satisfying life. Intentional Outcomes Counselling is a therapeutic practice utilising current evidence-based treatment protocols. We find out more as we speak to Owner, Robyn Jackman. Intentional Outcomes Counselling works with clients with a wide range of mental health concerns, offering actionable skills to create the outcome clients are looking to achieve. The company’s core values are built on independence, knowledge, passion, and growth – these are values which have not changed since its opening. Robyn Jackman is the Owner of Intentional Outcomes Counselling. With more than 7 years of experience in the field, Robyn helps her clients with a wide range of issues, including emotional issues and relationship challenges. These could include anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, shame, self-esteem, and relationship conflicts. “My goal is to support and strengthen your relationship with yourself and your other relationships,” Robyn explains. “I have experience working in the school setting and treating adult and adolescent mental health and addiction. I will support you with what you’re struggling with, what direction you want your life to take, and what steps to take to get there. I will help you gain a sense of control over yourself and your life.” What makes Intentional Outcomes Counselling different from its competitors is its blend of humour and skills development to achieve those intentional outcomes. Robyn tells us, “I use a wide range of evidence-based treatments tailored to meet your needs including approaches such as attachment theory, CBT, narrative therapy, EFT, Solution Focused and/or EMDR to name a few. You will learn actionable skills for transformations. I provide an empathetic, non-judgmental presence. Every person is worthy of empathy, caring, and support.” The internal culture of the business is based on a high standard of excellence with humour. “This puts everyone at ease and allows the staff to deescalate,” Robyn elaborates. “In the talent we are acquiring, we look for highly ethical, humanistic, and a high standard of excellence while being able to see the joy in things.” Over the past year, Covid has increased anxiety and depressive issues and Robyn has seen a growing trend towards these. However, she is also keen to highlight the fact that domestic violence has also seen a huge increase too, with a definite overlap between anxiety and depression with individuals interested in recovering from toxic relationships. “No one should have to go through life’s difficulties alone and I am here to support your healing. You are the expert in your own life.” Recently, Intentional Outcomes Counselling has been recognised in Corporate Vision’s Canadian Business Awards 2022 and bestowed with the prestigious title of Counselling service Provider of the Year Nova Scotia. With regards to the future, Robyn plans to add new group therapy options and has added an additional team member in order to expand her coverage to clients.
