Hi, I’m a huge video game fan, I am experienced working with SEN young people and I have qualifications within counselling, which have allowed me to further expand my understanding of mental health and wellbeing.

Since the young age of 13 I was diagnosed with severe anxiety and depression, my passion for gaming helped me through those tough times, and I since learned a great deal about how to cope with it.  I believe this gives me great understanding and empathy towards young people who are struggling.

Earning various mental health qualifications and skills throughout my college years, I vowed to use my own personal experiences to help others that suffered like I did.

I am fully DBS checked and have completed my safeguard training.

Hobbies: Baking, Cooking, YouTube, Movies, and a massive Star Wars fan!

Gaming interests go from FPS’s, MMO’s, Horrors, to Survivals such as: World of Warcraft, Overwatch, The Isle, League of Legends, CoD Warzone, The Forest, Dead by Daylight, War Thunder, Red Dead Online, Holdfast: Nations at War, ARK Survival Evolved, DEVOUR, Phasmophobia, Space Engineers, Among Us, Star Wars: Battlefront, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Stranded Deep, Valheim.

I think it’s very important to give the children of our generation support, and to be there to help them gain confidence in themselves for the future ahead.  Working with MindJam I am excited and enthusiastic to be a part of making that become a reality.
