About Ann Gillies, Ph.D.

Ann E. Gillies, Ph.D., received her call to ministry in 1982. Her call and passion for ministry come from Isaiah 61: 1-3. She spent over 25 years in private counselling practice working extensively with trauma survivors, seeing lives restored and transformed. Ann retired from practice in 2019 to focus on advocacy and political reform, for the traumatized; those struggling with unwanted sexual attractions and for the most vulnerable – our children.

Ann and her husband, Bob, have a blended family of six adult children and are the proud grandparents of 12 beautiful grandchildren.

Gillies offers conferences and seminars about the causes, effects, prevention of, and responses to personal, psycho-social conflict, and publishes information on these topics.

Her emphasis is on providing accurate and truthful information in the areas of trauma, attachment, gender and sexuality.
