When I first started I was very scared and my anxiety was high. Since working with Sue she has shown me different techniques on how to deal with a situation. Sue has also given me lots of information which was helpful. The task sheets that Sue brought along for me to complete was rather helpful. By breaking everything down and making me look at it in more detail, really made me think. Brilliant advisor, good understanding nature. Very friendly.
My outlook advisor suggested that I contact Pentreath for help and guidance.
Meeting my advisor, Olivia, for the first time, I was initially quite nervous as I didn’t know what help Pentreath could be. Olivia immediately put me at my ease, allowing me to explain my issues and problems. Over the course of several weeks she kept in regular contact, assessing my needs and offering well researched advice on job applications, training, further education and how to approach the DWP.
She introduced me to a wide number of job sites and enabled me, by giving me a soundboard for discussion and reflection and most importantly helped me to begin to review my progress positively. I was also able to attend a Mental Health Awareness course run by Emma which helped me understand about my condition.
Ultimately after working together I was successful in finding and beginning a new career, with interesting work and most importantly people who are able to empathise with me and support me.
Thank you all for your help and allowing me to achieve what I thought was impossible.
