Listener - Apprentice 2

Listener Rating
5.0 star rating

My name is Tanya. I'm 36 years old married to the love of my life, and we are parents to 2 amazing girls. We live and are the proud owners of a successful Drywall Contracting company based in the small town where we've grown up.

We love our 3 dogs and live on a small piece of heaven in the country where we relax with the wildlife and raise our chickens. I train as a purple belt in Brazilian Jui-Jitsu and practice Muay Thai and Kickboxing as well. This has become a huge part of my life, and really love the confidence in all aspects of my life that training a sport like this brings.

I always aspired to work with the elderly, and believe it or not, PSW was the only thing I had ever wanted to do. I got my diploma and worked in the field until I had my second daughter and decided to be a stay at home mom. With the girls being older now and always hearing that it was strange, I never considered a profession in counselling. I've decided now was the time to get back at it. I'm currently enrolled in a diploma course through The Kelowna College of Professional Counselling and am excited to be on this new path. I myself have been through several obstacles in my life and am very aware of the feelings and uncomfortabilities that come with addressing them. Having the right person in your corner truly makes all of the difference, and maybe be that for another person struggling in their own life is all I could ask for.

I've always wanted the best for others, and I think it's important for people to know their strength and resistance. We all have such great potential, and knowing that there are so many that have yet to find theirs, I'm excited to be a part of their journies, hopefully.

*When requesting a chat, please be aware that I allow for 1 hour sessions which should be plenty of time to get things sorted. Ā If by chance we still need some time, I'm always open to scheduled meetings and chats and will do everything I can to end our time together with you feeling supported and at peacešŸ„°
