Sometimes you just need someone to check in with. Sometimes you want a safe place to explore and reflect on experiences. Sometimes you need some new skills in areas such as art, social media, peer based resources, innovative design, or facilitation.
I am trained as a mental health peer worker. This means I relate to you as an equal, a fellow human.
I am not a psychologist, therapist, doctor, or counsellor. I do not offer therapy or any form of treatment. I do not give mental health or medical advice or make any kind of diagnosis. If that if what you need I will try and find you a great referral. 🙂
I am a highly creative person with a complicated life history. I am resilient, compassionate, highly skilled, and good at finding a new approach to challenges. It’s my pleasure to connect with people.
If you’re looking for some conversation or tuition, get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org and if I can, I’ll arrange a chat over coffee, phone, skype, or via email. Rates are on a sliding scale depending on your income and my availability.
