Hi, my name is Terry and I’m the new Peer support worker for the Imp region of Lincoln. I have been studying for the past three years at Bishop Grosseteste University where I undertook a Psychology and Counselling degree. Now I have graduated I decided to continue my studies at Lincoln University doing my masters in developmental psychology.
At the same time, I applied to Shine and was successful in gaining employment as a PSW. I have only been in the job a month and so far, the training and the support has been first class. I have been lucky enough to spend some time with Paul Bagshaw who is PSW for Gainsborough and he’s been very generous in showing me some of the excellent work PSW do.
I’m looking forward to making connections in the community and hope to make a difference in people’s lives.
