We wanted to know what our staff think of us, so we asked! Read Phillippa's story here...
Whilst working for EACH I gained the confidence in myself to know I knew more than I gave myself credit for. EACH also allowed me to gain the focus that I had been lacking and moved me closer toward my goal of becoming a Counsellor.
During my time at EACH I was able to practice my counselling skills and worked with counsellors around me that could support me in my endeavour to becoming a counsellor which made my learning and working journey all the more enjoyable. The support I received especially from my colleagues and the Operations Manager was absolutely immense which allowed me to move forward and really cement my own working style.
I realised how well I could manage group settings and also how to set up the groups I ran. I enjoyed working with a wide range of clients, which helped build up my experience and give me more of a sound knowledge base for when I move forward.
I realised how well I could manage larger case loads and also how to balance out the number when I felt myself reach my limits, which EACH were always supportive of. EACH was quite an emotional roller coaster as I had a lot of learning to do but I feel EACH helped me to become more professional, efficient and also feeling a lot more confident in my abilities and knowledge overall about the work I do and the work I want to get into.
EACH was more like a family than just a work place, it was reassuring and always a nice place to be able to work in and flourish.
I have relocated back to Yorkshire and secured a job very similar to the one I left in EACH. I have also continued to pursue my dream of becoming a counsellor and have been accepted onto my Masters in Psychotherapy and Counselling.
I am now in a role which has different challenges but thanks to EACH I have the confidence in my own ability to know what I want to do and how to get there.
