Corey 2020 by VT.jpg

Corey Turnbull is the creator of Guys Resolve. He holds a Master of Science Degree in Psychology from the University of Liverpool and is currently completing a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology with Yorkville University. 

As a member of a fraternity, Corey believes that we learn from each other and that being a trusted partner of clients as they work towards bettering their lives is a privilege that comes with the duty of becoming one's best self. 

He mainly works with guys who are dealing with anxiety or depression, or who are working on building their self-esteem and self-confidence. He also does a good deal of couples counselling, anger management, and sex therapy. 

 

Expect an easygoing and informal tone that also remains focused and professional.
