Pritwinder Kaur (She/her)
BA, MA, RP (Qualifying)
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
I believe that no one is immune to life's challenges and variabilities. Hopelessness, anxiety, fear, and other negative emotions can become overwhelming, affecting our overall wellness, leaving us exhausted. I help my clients overcome these difficult emotions by providing a non-judgmental, affirming and safe environment that respects boundaries and offers the space they require for their healing process.
My personal experiences and my work with people in similar situations to my own influenced my decision to pursue a career in counselling. As an immigrant, I am aware of the complexities and challenges that a new country can present. I am mindful of the impact of acculturation on our beliefs, worldviews, and sense of self across generations. As a queer South Asian woman, I hope to provide mental health services to individuals from diverse communities, particularly those from cultures that do not have a keen awareness of mental health, such as my own. I make every effort to incorporate therapeutic techniques carefully drawn from various modalities while maintaining a person-centred, collaborative, and culturally sensitive approach.
Pritwinder is currently completing the practicum component of her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University.

She has volunteer experience in responding to crises of Queer south Asian people, organizing the LGBTQ+ community’s events and building support systems. She is a student member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) and a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
