My first session
In sessions, we will discuss the issues you are worried about and I will ask you to prioritise the areas you want to address. I will ask a number of clarifying questions to ensure I have understood you. I will be curious, about historical events and how this relates to what is happening now for you. I am systematically trained and interested in social graces, your narratives, values, context and personal intersections.
Due to Covid19 Pandemic I have supported key workers, BAME Communities and professionals around bereavement, loss, anger, isolation and providing a space to reflect and listen.
