Own your magnificence. The world needs your brilliance and your grace.
My name is Christine Grace McMulkin. It is wonderful to have you here, and if our paths are crossing for the first time, it is a pleasure to introduce myself.
Many have conveyed that my presence evokes calm and my exchanges are filled with grace and a gentle strength. I do my best to embody the messages that I impart – messages of wellbeing, self care and humanness. I am grounded by quiet walks at dawn, being close to water, singing Celtic songs, dancing around the kitchen or on the dance floor to some old fashioned rock and roll, soulful visits and gatherings with family and friends, golden retrievers, and endless cups of tea.
As well as innumerable and invaluable life experiences and lessons, my offerings are influenced by a depth and breadth of learning and international contributions. I have immersed myself in the study and practice of Mindfulness. I am a certified teacher of Mindful Self Compassion, and a Faculty member of both the Center for Mindful Self Compassion as well as the Centre for Mindfulness Studies. I have completed extensive training in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. I have a Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counselling as well as a Master of Social Work with a specialty in Mental Health. I am a trained Life Coach, a Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner and a Registered Social Worker.
In the field of primary health care and mental health recovery, I have fulfilled the roles of practitioner, counsellor, mentor, trainer, teacher, leader and consultant. I have supported many people through life and health challenges and transitions. Internationally, I have developed and delivered recovery oriented approaches and practices with services and organizations in community, as well as institutional settings, within Scotland, Sweden, Singapore, the United States, and Canada. I have created, launched and delivered training and education programs at the Master’s, college and organizational levels; for practitioners as well as with peers.
I earned my Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counselling from Boston University, Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation and my Master of Social Work from the University of Toronto. I have completed a Life Coach training program. I am a certified Mindful Self Compassion (MSC) teacher. I also attained a Facilitation Certificate in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy through the Centre for Mindfulness Studies. I am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and a member of the Ontario Association of Social Workers, a Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner with the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association in the United States as well as a Certified Psychosocial Rehabilitation Recovery Practitioner through PSR/RPS Canada.
