All Trust Governors
Governor's Personal Statement
My route into community mental health started in 2012 after graduating from the University of Derby where I became director to the trustees of the Grapevine Project, as it was. I then came to manage the newly rebranded Grapevine Wellbeing Centre between 2013 and 2015 establishing many good links with community and voluntary organisations in the local and wider area and building a working relationship with the trust. During this time I played a role in the design and rollout of the Connect to Recovery and Five Ways to Wellbeing Model in Buxton. I was also recommended to stand as the Mental Health Service Receiver Representative for the High Peak on behalf of Derbyshire Voice where I attended various DHCFT stakeholder meetings, presented the work of the Grapevine at various events and was briefly involved in the early days of the DHCFT Neighbourhood Model. Up to now Iâ€™m currently on my way to becoming a fully accredited psychodynamic counsellor practicing creative elements of psychosynthesis. I am a graduate member of the British Psychological Society and Division of Counselling Psychology, student member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and Division of Spirituality.
