Shelley Comery

Governor's Personal Statement

I have a diverse knowledge off supporting people with learning difficulties, physical disabilities along with mental health in which I have too experienced myself. My role as support worker, working for Mencap was supporting individuals to lead as independent a life as their condition allowed, enabling them to reach their full potential which is of great importance. This was achieved with consistency, care, respect and above all else empowerment. Never two days were the same and I had a sense of achievement that I found to be personally rewarding, knowing I was helping to make a difference in their day to day lives. Unfortunately at the end of January 2013 my mental health took a downward turn and I had no choice but to finish doing the job I loved. Now that I’ve given you a little insight to what kind of a person I am I hope I have given you enough confidence in me being your governor with the Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and trust is what I give to you. I hope you share the same inspiration as me to allow me to help make changes where needed by speaking up for you no matter what the situation may bring.

Governor's Personal Statement

I am a Post Graduate Engineer with businesses management experience. I also have a great interest in health and at a personal level practice Yoga and Meditation. After retirement, I have become a Therapist and offer help with Mental/Emotional and Body level issues. Through MacMillan, I have completed a course to support patients and families affected by cancer. I am actively contributing to the following charities: — The Long Eaton and District 50+ Forum - as a Treasurer — Gujarat Samaj, an Ethnic charity (Indian Gujarati community) - as a Committee Member and Assistant Treasurer. In the past, I have served as a Trustee on the Board of Nottingham Counselling Services. I believe that more can be done in the preventive side of health. Education and early help can prevent manifestation of serious diseases and health problems.
