My Biggest Win

My biggest win to date is bringing a team together throughout Wales to provide a mental wellness service to people affected by cancer to live a well and fulfilled life.

This team was part of a two year service provided by Tenovus Cancer Care which unfortunately no longer exists was led by me and delivered by me and a team of over 30 volunteers.

We started with just the material on Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT). That was it.

Recruitment of presenters and participants started immediately with coffee mornings and carrying out training days for the presenters. Within two months we had launched our very first course.

We would go on to support people affected by cancer in every health board in Wales supporting over 300 people in two years live a well fulfilled life with their cancer diagnosis and not waiting for the life to start again.

We were able to do this by reducing feelings of anxiety and depression and increasing overall sense of wellbeing.

As for the team, we won a charity award too! 😃
