I am the (Acting) Manager for the African Caribbean Leadership Council (ACLC), Counselling Services and have worked there for the past 11 years. I specialise in bereavement counselling after successfully attaining the required Certificate. I manage the daily running of the office, which includes duties from administration, referral intakes, monthly reports, statistical data, invoice and accounting. I also manage a team of 6 as well as providing counselling support for my many clients. I also cover the task of peer supervision with the counsellors and students.
My creative skills have allowed me to design the current Letter head, leaflets, poster, compliment slips and also posters for events held by the ACLC such as New Years Eve event, Black History Event just to name a few. I also create Order of Service pamphlets for funerals for ACLC for Service Users who attend the Day Centre.
My creativity has overflowed into my personal life as I have designed logo’s and business cards for a few businesses.
I also attend ongoing training within the counselling setting and recently completed an “Ending” course the purpose endings (with clients)is to empower clients to engage with others in a positive way. It also encourages clients to move forward.
I am a very warm, compassionate and understanding person this demonstration of unconditional positive regard has enabled clients to communicate information that they have never revealed to anyone for several years. I developed my immediacy skills when challenging clients to enable them to be ‘real’ with their situation rather than leaving them with false hope and denial. The immediacy skills I use also helped couples who attend counselling.
