I work as an enabler, mentor, key worker and tutor for Esteem Team. I love the opportunity to come alongside each young person to learn their character, interests and hopes. My job is to empower and enable them to be the best they can be. I am always child led and seek to help them grow one step at a time with support and encouragement. I understand that each child is different and therefore may need more or less time than others so I always work with the child and their family to make sure my support is always at the appropriate level of engagement
I also worked at the Open Door Haven project supporting children with their emotional wellbeing and being a part of the children growing in confidence and self esteem as well as watching their resilience grow is a real privilege.
I have family members with additional needs so I understand the common misconceptions and challenges that this can bring, which motivates me to keep up to date with the latest research, training and insight to help me be the best I can be for the children I work with.
I am also one of the Esteem Team Directors and the Esteem Team Administrator so if you see my name CC'd into emails you know why. I process all the invoices, service agreements and other admin duties. I am super organised!
I love Pokemon, films, music, board games, bowling and loads more.
