Hold the Vision, Trust the Process
Counselling Services & Therapeutic Coaching
Converging Currents Counselling is a combined, 2-in-1 Practice, that doesn’t just offer counselling. This new form of Therapeutic Coaching is counselling reinvented. Often clients seek out a Life-Coach because they are more self-directed individuals, who have goals they want to achieve and want support along the way; another reason that clients choose to work with a Life-Coach is due to the cost. Typically, life coaches do not have the same level of training as clinical counsellors and therefore the services they offer are often more affordable for some individuals. Don’t you wish you could have both: the highly skilled counsellor who can help you understand yourself and heal and the coach who will support your journey of self-discovery. Counseling with a coaching edge offers the double benefit of working with a skilled counsellor, to overcome personal barriers and heal emotionally, while also launching yourself into a better future, one that you created and that you want to live in. Are you a motivated individual who is seeking counselling, but also wanting to develop a healthy lifestyle and discover more about yourself? Call today to find out more or check out what program is the best fit for you.
About Hannah Yager
Hannah Yager completed a Bachelors of Arts degree, studying Spanish and Development Studies, and then continued onto a Masters in Clinical Social Work with a focus in Couples and Family Therapy. Hannah is a Registered Social Worker with the British Colombia College of Social Workers.
Hannah has experience with a multiplicity of clients, from children to adults, facing a diverse set of challenges; such as, marital conflict, anxiety, depression, divorce, mental health, substance use, health concerns, domestic violence, parenting, grief and loss. Hannah always thought she would work with children and teenagers when she finished graduate studies; however, early on she realized that we are all very much impacted by the relationships that surround us. Hannah discovered that to ignore context is to declare that problems lie within an individual. This led to a new passion for family therapy and working with families to help families heal holistically and not just in part! Hannah continues to work with youth and individuals; however, She is always looking for connections and context in each person’s life in order to better support them with their change process.
Hannah grew up in a large family on Vancouver Island, just outside of Victoria, BC. During her undergrad, she was passionate about language and culture and lived in both Quito, Ecuador and Trinidad, Bolivia, studying in Ecuador and later working on a water project in the Amazon Jungle of Bolivia. These experiences have shaped who Hannah is as both a counsellor and social worker and given her a unique perspective on culture, people, and herself.
Hannah is an active individual and her heart feels most at peace when she is on a river, at the top of a mountain or in the middle of a forest. She believes that nature has the ability to help us lose our minds, while we find our souls.
