Life Coach Psychotherapist

My Approach

Coaching

Each of us is whole, creative, self-guiding, and meaning-making. Each of us has unique strengths and gifts that we draw upon to create a life of meaning. As your coach, I will help you explore these strengths and gifts to help you find your path to your full potential.

Psychotherapy

I bring tools from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Psychotherapy, Person-Centre Therapy, Clinical Psychology, and trauma recovery when I work with clients. The psychotherapy process will help you explore, question, and revise unhelpful beliefs, assumptions, and negative self-talk (“the inner critic”). I will help you reflect deeply on yourself and your life in a respectful, supportive, and non-judgmental environment.

Kevin William Grant's Bio and Experience

Overview

My coaching perspective originates from collaborating with clients as a Professional Coach.

In the clinical psychology domain, I draw upon my education and experience after completing a Master's degree and Ph.D. (Candidate) in Clinical Psychology.

Finally, my career coaching perspective comes from real-world corporate experience in product and innovation management at Microsoft, Mozilla, TD Bank, The Globe and Mail, and Bell Canada.

Highlights

2018 was the year I returned to coaching and psychotherapy, launched my private practice, and became an author.

I embarked on a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at York University in 2013.
In 2011 I began the process of integrating my background in clinical psychology with information technology and entered the field of health informatics. I completed a postgraduate Health Informatics Certificate at George Brown College in Toronto.

Between the 2000s and 2010s, I managed teams in diverse corporate environments. I had the pleasure of working for technology companies such as Microsoft, Mozilla as well as Bell Canada and TD Bank.
During my clinical psychology training, I counseled students at the Counselling and Development Centre at York University in Toronto.

In 1992 I completed a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with a focus on cognitive psychology. My research investigated how metaphors are used in counseling and psychotherapy to enhance communication between the client and mental health professional.
