About Gentle Path

“To provide hope and healing opportunities through professional counselling
and educational group programs, regardless of financial means.”
– Our Mission

Gentle Path Counselling Services is a social enterprise, a registered charity that seeks to provide group and individual professional mental health services to everyone, regardless of their means to pay. Our agency started in 1998 as a venture by two professionals who left their secure social work jobs in order to provide counselling and group mental health services to those ignored or disheartened by the lack of available resources in the Saint John region. Since then, Gentle Path has grown to a respected agency with twelve professionally qualified counsellors, support staff, and several dedicated volunteers.

Gentle Path continues to promote the values and vision of our founders, providing professional counselling services for individuals, couples, and families, with intermittent short-term group programming. In the 2020-2021 Fiscal Year, Gentle Path provided 3,974 professional counselling appointments to 708 clients from the Greater Saint John region. Of these, 1,214 sessions to 202 clients were fully or partially subsidized. We are proud of the work we do and are committed to offering Saint John and surrounding areas a safe space to share, learn, and grow with hope and healing opportunities for everyone.
