I am the Rev. Dr. Carl R. Gillett. I hold these degrees: M. Div., M.A., and D. Min. My doctoral work focused on the connections between hypnosis and spiritual direction. I have provided my professional services in a variety of contexts over the years. I have accumulated 22 years experience as a church pastor, 25 years experience as a counselor and psychotherapist and have recently made a couple of significant changes in my professional life. I have returned to emphasize the pastoral counseling which has been part of my life for a very long time and have sought training in the relatively new fields of life and spiritual coaching.
In preparation for doing more coaching, I have obtained training in coaching from the Fowler Wainwright International Institue of Professional Coaching, have been trained by Kelly Burris in Subconscious Restructuring Coaching. I am a member of International Association of Coaching. Recently I completed the requirements for certification as a mBIT coach which enables me to offer the tools pioneered by Grant Soosalu & Marvin Oka. In addition to offering coaching to individuals and couples, I have also served as a Master Coach for Fowler Wainwright where I offered my coaching process titled "The Drama of My Life" which invites people to decide how to be intentional about writing their own life script instead of just going with what was given to them.
I am now providing Pastoral Consultation to Fresh Aire Samaritan Counseling Service in Midland, Michigan. Fresh Aire is a new, ecumenically based service offering both pastoral therapy and coaching to the community.
