Carole Gour


Carole has 25 years of combined clinical experience working in hospital-based mental health programs and in community-based rehabilitation; predominantly with clients who have sustained a brain injury and/or are experiencing mental illness leading to functional impairments. During her career, she has enjoyed teaching in various settings (Western University, Canadore College), acting as a clinical field preceptor and providing psychotherapy supervision to fellow OT’s. She has also chaired a provincial occupational therapy group in developing resources, academic objectives and standards related to delivering occupational therapy to persons experiencing mental illness in their pursuit to return to work. Carole is a life-long learner; you can regularly find her reading books and articles on neuroplasticity.

Carole enjoys accompanying her clients in their quest for increased independence, improved self-management of their TBI symptoms, and most importantly regaining meaningful participation in activities that provide quality of life.

In her spare time, she loves spending time with family and just about anything outdoors! Hiking, camping, paddle boarding, gardening, swimming, fishing and snowshoeing. She keeps herself grounded with kundalini yoga and meditation – daily! She has volunteered to lead mindfulness practice workshops in her local community.
