As Esteem Team CIC manager I am passionate about supporting children and young people to live life to the full. I have worked in youth work for over 18 years and supported hundreds of young people with a range of complex needs as well as those trying to journey through difficult circumstances.
I have a degree in child and youth work and have attended many training courses including; PDA, Challenging behaviour, Social skills & autism, self harm, mental health first aid, suicide awareness, Level 4 in awareness of mental health problems, child and adolescents counselling skills, Lego therapy and I have just finished an art therapy diploma.
I set up Open Door's Haven project to support those who struggle with their mental health and have now handed that over to focus solely on Esteem Team CIC.
I am also a parent to a child with additional needs and so understand how hard that journey is and the lack of support services available. Esteem Team CIC was set up to support, empower, encourage, nurture and journey alongside those who need us. We are a bespoke service so we can tailor our support to their individual need.
I am so proud of Esteem Team CIC, it's staff, it's ethos and it's families.
I also love my two boys, donuts and M&M's :-)
