What inspired you to join Chapter?
I had been working in community-based mental health for a while doing one-off courses and liked the idea of working long term with clients where I could really see a difference to peoples development and changes in their mental health and I knew Chapter did this kind of support and were well established.
What’s the best bit about your work?
I love to see the people I work with grow in confidence and make new friends. That really makes it all worthwhile. My work also gives me the chance to be creative and develop fun projects which I love and theres always lots of new challenges.
Sally, what’s your own wellbeing ‘go-to’?
I love to do anything arty and crafty including jewellery making, journalling, painting plant pots and getting out and about with my dog to new places.
