Who are Curio Guides?

Curio Guides are experienced coaches, educators, and other expert facilitators who have been selected and trained to help Curio members excel. Each guide creates programs and resources according to their circle’s needs. All Curio Guides practice inclusivity, non-judgment, and unconditional positive regard.

How is this different from therapy?

Therapy generally helps you understand your internal processes and reflect on the past. Our methodology is more similar to that of coaching, which focuses on your current situation and how you can take actions to live a better life in the present and future. Although it is important, our focus is *not* on mental illness, although we can help guide you to proper channels if you are looking for help with major depression, panic disorders, and other clinical conditions.

Are Curio Circles safe spaces to share?

Yes. We ask all our members to follow our Code of Conduct, which indicates every member's promise to keep personal information shared during circle sessions private. We have a culture of trust, and any person who breaks that trust will have their membership revoked. To see how we take care of your information on the website, you can see our Privacy Policy.
