She has degrees in Business and Finance from Hammersmith and Westminster College, London UK; BSc in Psychology from Guildhall University, London UK; BA in English Literature from Serbia, and Certificates in Addictions and Community Counselling from Vancouver Community College. Her experience of war highlighted the fragility of life, taught her gratitude, and inspired a desire to be there for others to help ease their pain.

Sanela has trained in various modalities and interventions for trauma, chronic pain, and PTSD survivors. She is skilled in Play Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and ACT. She has experience in supporting children struggling with ADHD, depression, anxiety, and behavioral issues. Also, she has experience with parenting youth and working with refugees and former combatants of war.

Sanela believes in the human drive to connect in meaningful ways and honoured to work on removing obstacles that prevent this connection. She brings her authentic curiosity, warmth, and openness into the counselling room, working towards helping clients achieve creative, realistic solutions. It is her privilege to share the power of vulnerability while supporting personal exploration and the growth that blooms from it.

Sanela offers services in English and Bosnian.
