"thank you for our chat, it helped me a lot and was nice to talk to someone about how I was feeling." - Year 12 Student
There are many reasons people need support and many ways to provide that support. I can offer the following as examples;
- Emotional Support and /or Counselling
You may have been having some kind of professional counselling already and would like to continue in a more casual setting. Eg We can walk and talk or chat over a coffee.
I have done both counselling and other support roles with families, individuals, youth, young parents and more. I can also provide support in areas of addiction, mental health and grief.
- Youth Support - I have experience working with young people (some in out of home care) who are trying to become independent, navigate our systems and develop life skills .
- Advice - As above. I have a diploma in counselling and experience in the social and community sector. I also have a lot of life experience and have had to face challenges.
- French Connection - Need a French tutor? Or do you want to find good French food, or make friends with French people? I can help you connect to the French Community in Melbourne and/or find something French that you are looking for.
- Practical Support , Eg: We can go through your list of things to do
and help you get them done;
- Reassurance -If you feel overwhelmed at times with life and want advice or help in getting on top of things;
- Company - If you are lonely or elderly and want to catch up on a regular basis for a chat and/or Coffee/Tea; -Understanding
- To Engage with your local community, find new places to go and eat or have coffee, find activities and to connect with similar people to yourself;
- Need help being new to the area - If you have recently moved to Melbourne from somewhere else and need help to set up your support network and navigate the systems eg Health, School, Banking, Shopping etc
