Supporting residents and children in care
Supporting social work and pedagogy
I have a long background in mental health care, working with children and adults with social and mental challenges.
By working with me, you can use my skills and experience in a variety of ways, that in-house staff may struggle with because they are too closely involved with the person(s) in question.
People in care and those taking care of them are often exposed to challenges that they are either unequipped to deal with. As an outsider, I can offer a different perspective and experience, and one-to-one coaching with residents.
Living in care has its challenges. Many people in care need help to find a direction that keeps them emotionally balanced, and able to receive and take an active part in their care or accept where they have been placed.
Together with your team, or in confidence with the resident, I help residents, find meaning in their life, in relation to the type of care they are receiving.
I focus on the resident’s identity and helping them to see how they can use the care they are receiving and the place they are living, as a resource that can help them to improve their situation, and show them how they can still have an active role in creating their own identity, despite their circumstances.
