What made you want to volunteer for CSASS?

CSASS is a very pro-active, understanding, supportive and the work it achieves is outstanding

What has been your best experience?   

Being a counsellor and helping someone from a desperate and painful situation and seeing them come out the other end with vigour, energy, determination and peace.

Please share something you have learned:  

Everyone will need counselling support at some point in their lives. It scares me how ubiquitous an experience sexual abuse is for women.

What do you do outside of volunteering? 

I have a lot of animals, and have links with rescue centres from my previous career.

How has volunteering for CSASS impacted your life?  

It has given me a drive and a purpose. I knew counselling was what I wanted to do, but I never thought I would become so passionate about working with abuse survivors.

Top self-care tip during the Lockdown:  

Hugs with animals and a cake website called Sponge!

Is there anything else you would like to say about volunteering at CSASS?

I have volunteered for many organisations, but never have I been so supported, integrated, and a part of a genuine community. It truly is a different and amazing experience to be a part of such an impactful team.
