My time with CHEXS started 7 years ago now when I myself attended a parenting course.  The Family Support Team gave me so much helpful advice that I wanted to give this wonderful charity something back, so I volunteered my time one day a week for two years on the enrichments carried out in schools. Having seen first hand how this amazing charity helps the whole family I wanted to help continue their work.  For the past 4 years I’ve been employed as a Family Support Worker specialising in children and young people.
I’m passionate about helping young people be the best that they can possibly be.  I have a good understanding about how anxiety and  depression can affect the whole family.  I encourage pupils to face their fears, taking themselves outside of their comfort zones in a safe environment.
The Self Esteem Team are good listeners too, we help young people understand and manage their feelings. We work alongside the Family Support Team and can often help to break barriers with the pupil/school/home as we support whole families within our schools.
