about supporting

Passionate about working with you to achieve and exceed, your goals.

Personally, I started my career, setting out to be the best I could be, in the 1st Battalion the Parachute Regiment, constantly striving to improve myself mentally and physically. I have worked in arduous environments to include Northern Ireland, Africa, Iraq & Afghanistan.

Once making the decision to leave my military family I worked in a secure children’s home, working with young people from gangs to those who had been put in a secure setting for their own protection. I found that I could relate with the young people and engage with them quickly allowing me to become passionate about re-parenting and the nurturing we could provide, enabling the best possible outcomes for the young people.

I worked my way up from a support worker to a manager, whilst remaining a proactive individual in the young people’s lives and not losing touch with the direct support work, I could offer. I have worked with CSE, those with mental ill health and learning disabilities, always being able to find a common ground very quickly to ensure that the relationship of trust could begin, and we could work together to achieve their wishes whilst meeting their needs.

I am also privileged to work with adults that have complex needs due to trauma, substance abuse and addiction and develop plans within a sector for training, mentoring, and coaching for staff members, enabling the best to be achieved in a person-centred approach.
