l have worked previously as:
a Vocational Guidance Support Worker, Trainer, Class A Drugs Support Worker with H.M Prison Service, a Teaching Assistant, Youth Counsellor, Family Support Worker, Homeless Hostel Support Worker and Leaving Care Project Facilitator.
One of my favourite roles was working for young people aged 14-25 who were disadvantaged. Within this role, I designed and facilitated training in Assertiveness Skills, Relationship Skills, Job Search, English, Maths, Healthy Eating, Budgeting and IT skills. I particularly enjoyed setting up a Peer Mentoring Project and seeing young people thrive on their newfound abilities.
I recently ran a one-day Transformational Retreat in partnership with other therapy providers. This included a workshop called “How you think, affects how you feel – Keep calm and change your thoughts”.
