The Full Story
Gurprit Kaur was born in England and moved to Montreal, Quebec, at a young age. Early in her career, she decided to switch gears from electrical technology to social work, after life experiences inspired her to want to help others.
In a professional capacity, Gurprit has worked with the Department of Youth Protection since 2008. She assisted in women’s shelters, schools, and other community initiatives before beginning her private practice in 2020.
As a member of the South Asian community in Montréal, Gurprit is especially interested in providing and advocating for mental health supports that are culturally sensitive.
In addition to French and English, Gurprit speaks Punjabi, Hindi, and Urdu, and is happy to provide clients with services in the language that allows them to best express themselves. In her practice, Gurprit centers her client’s experience and goals, and allows for shifts in direction as priorities or circumstances change.
I have over 12 years of experience working with individuals, families, children and seniors. I have experience in Youth Protection, intimate partner violence, schools and senior abuse.
I am a Sikh female born in England, raised in Canada with traditional parents. I have first hand experience of what it was like to be a minority female.
I offer individual and family counselling in a safe, culturally sensitive and non-judgmental environment.
