I work with young people aged between 18-25 to build confidence based on self-esteem not ego. I intersperse my own story throughout, and use the creative element of the ‘Jiggsaw’ platform, to help connect individuals with their core self.
The Shaw Mind Foundation
I work as a trainer/consultant delivering mental health strategies to corporate companies and universities. I use my extensive experience of working within the BBC, to educate and identify areas where creativity and productivity is being affected by mental ill health.
Beat Eating Disorders
I am an ambassador for B-eat, sharing my personal journey of recovery from an eating disorder, to inspire others and reduce the stigma. I also work with my mum who educates families and carers on how to support their loved one.
I have been involved with Mind, delivering ‘Jiggsy’ workshops at their annual Peerfest; Mind’s, national event celebrating the importance, power and diversity of peer support.
I am training with the CCI to become a ‘Carolyn Costin Institute Eating Disorder Coach.’ This will enable me to assist clients in reaching their treatment goals in real life situations, providing support, and serving as both role model and guide.
Reach Academy Feltham
I incorporate the ‘Jiggsaw’ platform to help students build resilience and confidence from within. I use stories from my own recovery, to inspire students to connect with each other, in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
