The nature of life’s experiences and living can be exceptionally fulfilling and at the same time provoke incredible challenges making life, family, relationships and living seem so hard.

We may not be able to control certain elements of life, but we do have control over how we address, engage with, and continue to move forward given these challenges.



Charting Pathways Counselling is a place of healing, learning, and growth.

Our therapeutic approaches are based upon supporting the needs and goals of each client who courageously takes the initiative to reach out for support.

Gillian Curtis

RCC

CVAP Counselling, Consultation, Individual Counselling

Hi there, I’m Gillian! I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#22672) and hold a Master’s in Counselling Psychology from Adler University. My journey in counselling has been shaped by a diverse range of experiences, particularly in assisting individuals navigating addiction, anxiety, trauma, shame, and burnout, as well as years of experience offering support to Survivors of human trafficking, violence and abuse.

My counselling approach is shaped by my belief in the inherent human capacity for change. When life’s challenges leave individuals feeling stuck, I am guided by the conviction that healing happens through deeper connection with self and others. I strongly believe that transformation occurs when individuals are met with encouragement, non-judgment, and empathy. You’ll find that I approach all of my work with compassion and curiosity and aim to support clients in doing the same.

The nature of life’s experiences can be exceptionally fulfilling and at the same time provoke incredible challenges that have the ability to evoke immense struggles in our lives. We may not be able to control certain aspects of life but we do have control over how we address, engage with, and continue to move forward given these challenges.

My belief is that therapy is a place of healing, learning, and growth. My approaches are based upon supporting the needs and goals of each client who courageously takes the initiative to reach out for support. My aim is to create a safe, trusting space in therapy facilitated through non-judgmental and non-pathologizing approaches. As such, my approaches are client-centered and individualized to the uniqueness of each person.

I provide avenues to explore these difficulties and empower clients through strengthening their personal resources and resiliency, so they are better equipped to work through adversities in life, and ultimately experience greater life fulfillment.

I am an advocate of exploring and applying holistic approaches and integrating mindfulness throughout the therapeutic process by offering a diverse set of techniques and interventions to best fit the needs of clients. I believe the roots of mindfulness help us to connect and understand ourselves and others; providing a base from which to ground oneself in the adversities that life challenges us with.

Consultation, Individual Counselling

I am a Registered Professional Counsellor - Candidate (RPC-C) with the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association. I work with individuals online. When we work together, you will be met with compassion and curiosity. This is a warm and non-judgmental space where you are free to be yourself – flaws and all. I believe that you are the expert in your experience and my role is to offer insights, share tools, and gently challenge you along your path of healing and growth. Drawing from a holistic approach that considers all aspects of wellbeing (mental, emotional, physical and spiritual), we may work with somatic techniques, expressive arts, mindfulness and/or cognitive therapy. I work from a trauma-informed, person-centered, and anti-oppression lens and am committed to ongoing training in these areas.
