What is your role?

Wellness Manager/ Counsellor – Health Services

What do you love most about your role and working for Bamara?

I am rewarded and amazed everyday by the incredible positive changes that occur after even just one session of counselling with a participant. I love to hear people’s life stories and to support them to overcome the complex challenges that many of our participants are dealing with.

I also love to receive the appreciation and acknowledgement that staff and participants have shared with me on their journeys to strength and resilience.

I have 3 beautiful grown adult daughters who are out there in the world making me proud of them. So just hubby and my dog Maisie home with me.

So many….. I love life and enjoy dining out with friends, coffee and dog walks on the beach, (used to love my OS holidays) painting, hugs and dancing!
