Supervision & Mentorship


Brenda Johnson is a Registered Counselling Therapist and Supervisor with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists and Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling Psychotherapy Association. Brenda also is an Accredited Music Therapist with the Canadian Association of Music Therapy and Atlantic Association for Music Therapy.

In RCT supervision, the required 2,000 hours over two years is a considerable investment in a counselling therapist’s future. The supervision relationship is of critical importance in ensuring you have the guidance and expertise to expand your skills and prepare yourself for independent practice. As a current supervisor supporting practicing candidates with specialities in spiritual, equine, art-based and school stream counselling, Brenda embraces the varieties of approaches and applications which highlight practitioners strengths.

Brenda offers a supervised placement approximately once per year, following the completion of a university degree in music therapy. The music therapist in training completes a 1000 hour supervised internship. During the internship, the successful applicant as a music therapy intern, consolidates their knowledge and skills, develops competence with one or more clinical populations and gradually assumes the full range of responsibilities of a professional music therapist. Upon completion of this internship, graduates are eligible to take the CBMT* Exam and after passing this exam, can apply for MTA Certification signifying they are qualified to work in the field and will adhere to the CAMT Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. *Certification Board of Music Therapists: Brenda offers placements including long term care, and creative arts.
