Gillian Drader (she/her) describes the joy of walking the path of contemplation and soul care for over 10+ years as having changed her life. Through personal retreats, spiritual direction and participating in long term spiritual growth groups she has experienced incredible personal growth and deep spiritual wells that have drawn her closer to Divine Love and her authentic self. Following her graduation from the Haden Institute’s Spiritual Direction Program, Gillian was part of the leadership for a spiritual direction training school in British Columbia where she was able to deepen her understanding of how this soul work can transform lives and be a catalyst for change in this challenged world. Gillian has been a Psychotherapist for over 25 years and has also walked the path of emotional and psychological healing with many individuals. She has a passion for the intersection between spirituality and trauma and to bring those two paths together in her work. The wisdom, knowledge and incredibly meaningful personal expansion that has occurred during her time in circle and spiritual direction and her Haden training have led Gillian to a deep commitment to bringing this work into what she offers to clients as well as young therapists who are developing their skills. She invites all to join her in these transformative and beautiful spaces and discover the deep treasures awaiting there.
