Public Access Registry

The Nova Scotia College of Registered Counselling Therapists does not make recommendations or referrals about individual Counselling Therapists. The purpose of this registry is to provide the public with a way to search the registration status and discipline record of all Counselling Therapists licensed to practice in the province of Nova Scotia. The registry will soon be updated to provide information that may be useful to those seeking the services of a Registered Counselling Therapist.

Important Note: Members of the public are encouraged to protect their safety by ensuring that they receive counselling therapy services from a licensed professional. Only those names listed in this registry are licensed to call themselves Registered Counselling Therapists (RCT) or Registered Counselling Therapist-Candidates (RCT-C) and to practice “counselling therapy” in the province of Nova Scotia.
