I have a good understanding and awareness of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, social phobias, confidence issues.

Experienced in rehabilitation support, bereavement support, confidence building, I am a good listener with excellent communication skills, and the ability to relate to people of all ages and backgrounds. Particularly interested in working with older people 50+.

Providing access to social activities either on a one to one or group basis, with a strong emphasis on mental / physical stimulation via short excursions, game playing, genealogy, conversational / pictorial connecting with the past, etc.
