Service Provider in Campbell River, British Columbia
I live on Quadra Island in B.C. which suits me well as it is naturally beautiful, and the community is small and wonderfully supportive. I moved from the lower mainland (just outside of Vancouver, BC) to Quadra Island in 1991 with my husband and two daughters. Professionally my early work life was primarily focused in the accounting and administration fields, including working in office management and financial administration. When I was raising my family I started a solo bookkeeping/accounting service that allowed me to stay fully involved with raising my children, which was very important to me. In 2007 my life path took a different turn. I decided I wanted to pursue a change in career direction and after some soul searching and internet research. I found life coaching. Looking back I can see now that I didn’t have any idea how positive and fulfilling this new path would be. I just new that coaching was something I felt could make a real difference in peoples lives. My initial training was done through Health Action Inc. in Santa Barbara, CA where I was certified as a Circle of Life coach. This health and wellness training program has a holistic approach to well being, which really resonates with me. I went on to work as a Recovery Coach at Sunshine Coast Health Centre in Powell River, BC. in 2011, which is where I realized that I have a passion for working with folks in recovery. I continued my work with SCHC through May 2013, and continue to specialize in recovery coaching through my private coaching practice. Personally, I have overcome and/or made peace with an eating disorder, infertility, adoption, addictions and woven through it all…..perfectionism. This work was not easy or fast. But then as they say “anything worth having is worth working for” and I believe we are all worth it. Tucker Dinnes.
