Own your magnificence. The world needs your brilliance and your grace.

—Cheryl Richardson

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 compassion 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 Mindfulness, am a certified teacher of Mindful Self Compassion, and 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.
