Tanya-Danielle Gillis started nursing in 1989, and has worked in medical/surgical areas, as well as high dependency units; cardiothoracic; orthopedics; neurology; mental health; and nursing management.
In 1994 she worked with the Department of Child Protection (DOCP), doing educational classes (for almost two years); educating parents in strategies for children’s behaviours; as well as emotional and mental well-being. Until the funding was pulled out of the program.
With the success of the educational programs and demand, she decided to start ‘C.A.R.E.S for You’ Business in 1996. Providing programs in communication skills, dealing with stress, anxiety, depressive thoughts; and tools that assist the individual to enhance their personal and professional lives.
She currently runs three successful workshops Free Yourself Workshop: Free Yourself; Really Relating, and Managing children’s behaviours. Her ‘word of mouth' is very strong, gaining many referrals from professionals and people who attend her workshops/seminars/clinic.
