My name is Sheila Gill (she/her pronouns). In June 2019 I completed four years' intensive therapy training at the Integral Healing Centre of Toronto. In 2017 I began serving clients at The Spadina Therapy Centre in The Annex. Currently I am training with the Toronto Centre for Psychotherapy and Counseling Education, while I continue to support clients in my supervised private practice. 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 client base spanning teens to older adults, I work under the supervision of experienced registered clinicians (RPs). I am a student member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. As a supervised student practitioner I uphold the professional Code of Ethics and Practice Standards of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). My practice is intentionally a 2SLGBTQ+ positive space.
I bring to this work a love of people and a deep care for their wellness. My academic work challenged race-based oppression in Canadian society. My personal search for creative, healing responses to the struggles we face has drawn me to the counselling field. I am here to support individuals and couples in their personal efforts to grow, heal, and transform old patterns into new, life-affirming ways of being with themselves and others.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about how we can work together.
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.
