My name is Sheila Gill (she/her pronouns). In June 2019 I completed four years' intensive training at the Integral Healing Centre of Toronto, under the direction of John Went, R.P. In 2016 I began supervised clinical practice in Toronto's East End. In 2017 I expanded to serve clients at The Spadina Therapy Centre in The Annex. I hold a Master’s degree in Equity Studies from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto. In addition, I am a Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor, teaching since 2008.
With a growing client base spanning teens to older adults, I work under the supervision of experienced registered clinicians. I am a student member of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy and uphold their professional Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. My practice is intentionally a 2SLGBTQ+ positive space.
I am more than grateful to be doing this work. I bring a love of people and a deep care for their wellness. My academic work challenged racism in Canadian society. My personal journey, and the search for creative, healing responses to the struggles we face, has led me to the rich Integral Healing therapeutic model. Its blended approach helps me welcome my clients in their wholeness—mind, body, and heart.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about how we can work together to help you along the path to healing.
We need to allow beauty, softness and gentleness to come.
We need to celebrate this tremendous capacity for enjoyment that we have. The body needs to be open to go from the discomforts to the longing, from the longing to the searching, and from the searching to the finding;
finding and completing.
