Host Peter McCully welcomes Cindy Thompson to PQBeat. Thompson is a registered clinical counsellor, a certified executive coach and host of the podcast, ‘A Resilience Project’.

“Our Resilience Project started in 2020 when we were all going through the pandemic,” said Thompson. ‘It seemed timely that there was a need to identify ways that we could help make a difference. I’m in the humanitarian field as a clinical counsellor. As a coach, I’m all about helping people and I felt like this was an opportunity to reach a broader population and make a difference at a time where we really needed it the most.”

The podcast offers interviews that provide a message of hope.

Thompson talks of her interview with Kaleb Dahlgren, a survivor of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.

“He was 19 at the time, but it was only by the fact that he was at the back of the bus that he survived and several of his teammates died in the crash,” said Thompson. “I interviewed him and he’s just this amazing young man that speaks about his practices and what got him through emotionally and physically in his healing.”

Thompson describes herself as a ‘possibilitarian’.

“I’ve been working with people to realize their possibilities, and to me, I see myself as a conduit or facilitator to help people realize possibilities, because we often limit ourselves,” she said. “We have limiting thoughts. We put ourselves in a box and tend to not want to stretch outside of that. Even through doing the podcast, I’m stretching myself. It’s been a huge learning curve. I also encourage people to explore possibilities within themselves that haven’t yet been realized’.
