Josiah Mutua, M. A. (Counselling Psychology)

My wife of 32 years and I live in the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead, Manitoba. We have three adult children and two grandchildren. 

Worldview 

I believe that every person has inherent worth and dignity, and is unique and capable, regardless of his or her culture, religion, spirituality, ethnicity, gender, age, ability, or socioeconomic status.

Education 

Currently, I am enrolled in a doctoral program in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D). I earned a master's degree (M.A.) in Counselling Psychology from Providence Theological Seminary, Otterburn, Manitoba. I also have a bachelor's degree (B.Sc.) in Botany and Zoology.

Experience 

I have been practicing counselling and psychotherapy since 2011. However, for many years prior to graduate training, I mentored college and high school students.

Passion 

I believe that people have the potential for change and progress, regardless of their past or present condition, or circumstances. This belief, and the anticipation of positive outcomes, fuels my passion for working with people.

Professional goal 

My goal in working with people is to facilitate genuine change and growth and to help them develop strategies, resources, and skills to manage their challenges and to transcend the effects of the crises in their lives so that they can lead effective and productive lives, and enjoy fulfilling relationships.

Hobbies 

From an early age, I have enjoyed planting trees and tending crops, making furniture and restoring equipment.

Pearls Poem: Sustained to Splendour

Pearls are precious.

Their beginnings subtle,

Their growth definite

In seclusion by the resolve

Of an imperiled oyster.


Pearls are lovely.

With splendour adoring

All who possess them,

Their brilliance enchanting

All who behold them.


Pearls are enduring,

Solid, strong, lively--

Their beauty ever renewed.

Yet at their very core

Is frailty transformed.


Sustaining every pearl--

Precious, lovely, enduring--

Is a vulnerable oyster,

Whose resolve to live 

Transforms its very essence.
