15 min Venting Support Session

10


10 per session - Virtual OK

Need to vent? Craving a compassionate ear? Just need someone to listen? Looking for an objective view on an issue? We can chat on the phone, on Google Hangouts, on Skype or in person (if convenient), and you can let it out! I'm not a registered therapist, but friends, family and colleagues frequently approach me for support and advice. I have a knack for seeing different viewpoints and considering a range of possible solutions or plans of action. Sometimes just talking about a problem with an unbiased observer can give you some clarity...

Training & Qualifications


I'm not registered therapist, but I am a good listener, have a compassionate and empathetic nature, and am quite good at playing devil's advocate and seeing different perspectives and viewpoints. I am a people watcher, and am very emotionally intelligent. I love chatting and supporting people. I am a teacher with specializations in French and Special Education. I'm also a parent of a child with Autism. None of these things make me an "expert", but they are a large part of who I am, and have made me stronger and wiser as a result.

Availability & Preferences


Sporadically...during the weekdays is more difficult (working/teaching), but there can be some rare exceptions (lunch breaks, etc). I can usually make myself available most evenings after 5pm, and on weekends. We can easily negotiate and plan a time for a brief call or Google Hangouts session pretty much anytime, as I carry my phone with me.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Victoria Motto

Hey there! I'm a French immersion Special Education teacher and separated/single mother of two. I'm an autism ally and advocate (my son had ASD). I am a generally creative and crafty person who enj...oys time in nature, music, concerts, movies, reading, baking, hiking, cycling slo-pitch baseball and volleyball. I am a fairly spiritual person, and am trained in Reiki (level 2, hoping to take the Master level, sometime soon). I really would love to use Reiki more actively, and would be very keen to exchange Reiki sessions for other modalities of treatments and services. My latest hobby/interest is running, and I am training to do a 5K. I love to write, but never seem to find the time to indulge that interest, myself. Nonetheless, I am generally very detailed oriented, with a knack for seeing "the bigger picture". I can find a spelling mistake almost anywhere! In university, I originally intended to major in English and become a journalist, however, languages won out, and I majored in French instead. I am a busy and active woman who sees the value in bartering skills and services. This not only helps everyone to benefit from skills, knowledge and services, but it also helps to make our hard earned money last longer. Everyone's time and expertise is worth something, and sharing builds a sense of community and positive interdependence. In an increasingly fast paced, impersonal world, we all need to feel more connected to each other. :-) show more
