Essential Life Skills Q&A

Essential Life Skills Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I love the sense of satisfaction in seeing a client learn new skills and improve the quality of their life and sense of independence.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I had worked for the past 13 years in the voluntary sector and always loved the one to one work working with people on the practical issues that so offen affect people when they have experienced a period of mental illness such as confidence building, self management, assertiveness, budgeting, looking after a home and dealing with paperwork and clutter.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am passionate about empowering people to overcome the obstacles that they face due to their mental health issues and know that maintaining wellbeing is a very personal journey that doesn't just require medication and traditional therapeutic interventions but there is often a need to learn or relearn practical living skills.
