FOR SENTENCE MITIGATION
Recognized by the Ontario Court of justice, The Attorney General of Ontario – Victim Services
and Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, ReConnect Counselling works with the defence team to provide information and analysis when a judge is trying to decide sentencing in a criminal case.
For over 20 years, Ontario defence counsels have trusted Trish Scott & ReConnect Counselling to be an effective sentencing mitigation tool.
Unmatched Experience & Commitment
Trish Scott, the Founding Principal and Clinical Director at ReConnect Counselling has almost 20 years of experience working with Criminal Defence Attorneys and their clients, within the Ontario Criminal Justice System, and other jurisdictions.
Trish Scott and her team have the personal warmth and non-judgemental approach to connect meaningfully with clients and provide reports which can have an impact on the sentencing decision.
With over 30 years of experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist, Trish Scott understands the complex psychosocial factors behind criminal or antisocial behaviour, allowing her and her team to provide in-depth analysis and reports.
Programs are customized to the specific needs of each client and are a combination of insight-oriented work combined with a cognitive behavioural approach. Every program includes a Letter of Acceptance and a Completion Report for sentence mitigation.
ReConnect Counselling works as an effective negotiating and sentencing mitigation tool and with therapeutic results.
The combination of the course content, exceptional CV and report writing skills provide counsel with the tools to negotiate the most positive outcomes or sentences. It is not unusual to have a sentencing court say "the most important mitigating factor is the report from ReConnect Counselling".
As the client gains insight, balance and grounding they become a much better and more credible witness.

I have sent clients to ReConnect Counselling in the past and will unhesitatingly send them in the future. Trish does superb work. She is compassionate and has a keen sense and unique understanding of the human condition. She guides clients towards self realization and I have seen the trajectory of people's lives change after sessions with her. This is not an exaggeration. She demands a lot from her clients and is not easily duped. She provides excellent and honest reports that I have used to great advantage in a number of criminal cases.
