Chris Pankewich is a current practicum student and on track to complete his Masters in Counselling Psychology in August 2021 (Yorkville University). Chris found that personal therapy in combination with a dedicated yoga practice helped him shift away from experiencing periods of depression and anxiety that were taking a toll on the quality of his life experience.

Chris focuses on working with clients by examining how the stories we tell ourselves about our identity and our circumstances play a significant role in shaping our daily experience. This can be most evident in examining our closest relationships, patterns of compulsive behaviour and seeking fulfillment in our professional identity. Chris firmly believes that each client is the expert of his own life and that his role is to support therapeutic exploration and growth.

By incorporating elements of Narrative Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness and humour, Chris believes each client can find a clear path forward, supported by these evidence-based practices.  He is currently the Research & Knowledge Lead for the Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health and a Part-Time Faculty Member at Humber College. He is married and hopeful to start a family of his own in the near future.
