Expertise

I enjoy meeting people and building a relationship with them. I especially like to encourage independence as much as possible and that helps to build confidence. I feel passionately that clients should be able to access the community if they wish.
I have lived in Eastbourne most of my life, I enjoy the town and surrounding areas, especially walking my my dog on the Seafront and on the hills. I enjoy swimming, watching most sports and socialising with family and friends. Although I have limited knowledge I do enjoy pottering in the garden

Experience

I have been working in the care sector for over five years. I started working with a local agency gaining experience with clients with differing needs and abilities, such as learning disabilities, elderly, dementia, mental health and physical disabilities to name a few. During this time I also worked within a specialist autism service for one year. I have been working as a self employed P.A for over a year, primarily with clients with learning disabilities and the elderly. The clients I currently support have all come from recommendations.
I am passionate about supporting clients to develop or maintain independence and to access the community. I have a calm, friendly nature and I always work with a person centred approach, adapting to each clients needs and requirements
Level Two Diploma in Health and Social Care

Background

Before working in the care sector I have mainly been employed in sales roles. The last ten years was as a property letting agent which I enjoyed greatly, interacting and problem solving with clients and professionals from all walks of life. I left this role and started in the care sector for a more personally fulfilling role.
