I began working at Grief Support in November 2016 as part of my practicum training; upon completing studies in 2017 I have continued to work at Grief Support as a volunteer.
I really enjoy my work and I consider it an honour and privilege to journey alongside others in a meaningful, safe and supportive way, through what can often be a challenging phase of life.
Although most of my working background has previously been in the building industry, I feel it has given me life experience.
I have also been involved in facilitating men’s groups for a number of years, which has been a catalyst for my counselling training.
