My name is Sheilagh McGlynn. My journey to wellness started many years ago. I trained at the Toronto Institute for Relational Therapy (TIRP) in 2008. I started in private practice shortly after that as a student therapist. I am a member of Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT) and a Registered Psychotherapist with the Ontario College of Psychotherapists.

In 2010, I trained as a JourneyDance leader. Since then, I’ve complete all three Modules and am a JourneyDance Facilitator. This dance process has been deeply nourishing for me. It operates by using the physical body to connect with the emotional body. Getting out of the head and into the body is exactly what some clients need to get out of the stuck spaces in their lives.

I work from a client-centred model of therapy. I am eager to work with you and what you are dealing with at your pace and on your terms. I am an empathetic listener and will be ready to meet you where you are at. 

I use the pronouns she/her.

Land acknowledgement

 I work on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Metis peoples. Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.
