Great Day at Ratcliffe college

Another PSHE sessions yesterday, this time at Ratcliffe college with the year 7’s exploring what emotional health is – what it looks like and how it feels. We spoke about negative experiences things that can influence our emotional health – bullying, peer pressure and ways that we can improve our emotional health by learning coping strategies – speaking to a teacher, listening to music, sports ect.

Thank you for being great to work with.

 

 

Simple Steps Are Often The Hardest

Another great day today with my client and another good day in a messy world of their mental health.

My client was great shopping today, they understood the benefit of not spending at a secondhand shop and actually budgeted their funds really well to get an array of food. They chose to think before throwing it in to the trolly, which for many seems such a small thing to do but for my client it is another big step.

Smiles Better

Another fulfilling day today as a PA.

I spent the day working with my Client sort their bills and putting up shelving to allow them to create a cleaner and more organised living room. On arrival they had cleaned as promised and they seemed so enthused to continue to make their property feel more like home. It is so great to seem them focusing on positive things and controlling their demons.

Difficult but rewarding day

Arriving to see my client in such a dark place was not the best feeling but with some distractions and some fresh air we soon saw a spark of light and a smile. It was a difficult day where I had to be on my A game but when you can impact someones life in a positive way it really gives you purpose as a PA. Fingers crossed my time with the client will keep them up until our next visit.
