Hi Everyone! I’m so glad that you’re taking the time to explore this site. My name is Anda Brockhoff and I have been a crisis/trauma counsellor for about 20 years now, primarily in the area of family violence. I am married to Louis, an incredibly patient man who actually shares my weird sense of humour! I say he’s patient because he’s been a huge support as I’ve dealt with job burnout, anxiety, and a few of the fun side effects of PTSD. Between the two of us we have a blended family of 7 kids, all grown, and 9 grandchildren! All of them are spread out between Denmark, Japan and Canada (thank goodness for Skype!).
About a year ago I resigned from my counselling position in order to go with my hubby when he goes to work in northern Canada. The first couple of months were spent completely renovating an old RV (I just love how it turned out) and then travelling around. I knew I wanted to do something involving the best part of the work I’ve done while still being completely portable so I can continue to travel. And so this blog was born.
