My Background
I have helped set up 3 equality charities in York: York LGBT Forum, York Pride and York LGBT History Month and I am currently a trustee of two of these charities. I have also set up projects in Mental Health Peer Support, and offer support to Asylum Seekers and Refugees. I guest lecture at the University of York on the MA and BA Social Work Course. I have worked with disabled people, people who experience mental-ill health and helped York become a Human Rights City.

My Experience
I have 10 years experience delivering training in York and North Yorkshire to businesses, public sector organisations and charities. I have also written policies and procedures focusing on Equality and Data Protection for different organisations. I have a BA (Hons) Counselling Studies Degree from York St John University. During my degree I developed my training skills by offering my experience and knowledge of LGBT and BME issues. This inspired me to develop training on these subjects.

After my counselling degree, I worked for a number of organisations which supported people with Mental ill-Health, Learning Difficulties and Sexual Health needs. From this I have developed bespoke training covering many topics.

About Me
When I'm not working, I like to paint, write poetry and visit historical buildings.
