About Me

Hello, I am Tanuja. I would like to introduce myself a little bit here. Working with people has always been my life's calling and I am grateful to be able to call it my career. I came to Canada in 2020 just as lockdown started. I spent the first 2 years trying to make sense of life just like everyone else and adjust to life in a new country, in the midst of the pandemic which made it an experience. Making social connections was difficult, yet I cherish those I could make.  Now I call British Columbia home. I came to Canada from South Asia. I bring the experience I gained there working as an Addictions Counsellor as well as in Private Practice to my practice here. I have been in practice from 2011.  I also have lived experience from the UK. After coming to Canada, I worked in public health while also starting my practice. Having gained lived experience and work experience with people from various cultures, both from individualistic and collectivistic cultures affords me a unique multicultural perspective to work with clients. I, myself, identity as a BIPOC counsellor. 


When I am not working, I like to read fiction, murder mysteries and romance novels. Cooking to music and gardening help me destress. I connect with others through chats and food. Practicing meditation, occasional naps, pampering self and going for walks are some ways I like practice self- care. I make it a point to practice daily self- care after seeing burnout very closely. 

I strive to meet every client where they are at in their journey. I look forward to working with you. Get in touch to learn more.
