Meet the Team
We employ a team of facilitators who work on a sessional or casual basis. We have a team of trained counsellors who work on a voluntary basis.
The core staff members are:
Mental Health & Welbeing Worker
I facilitate courses like Anxiety Management, Coping With Depression, Positive About Me, Mood & Food and Better Out Than In (Anger Management). I am passionate about supporting women to feel more in control of their mental health and more positive about themselves.
I provide line management and support to our Admin Team. I am responsible for overseeing all admin and office systems and procedures. I am also responsible for all financial systems associated with Tyneside Women’s Health.
I support Tyneside Women's Health by covering for other members of staff when needed.
Counselling Coordinator / Mental Health & Wellbeing Worker
I am the Counselling Coordinator which means I manage the referrals into our counselling service and provide line management support to our team of counsellors. I also run the Wellbeing Group, the Reading Cafe, and support with other services.
Chief Executive Officer
It is my responsibility to ensure that all of our services run smoothly by supporting the facilitators and administration staff behind the scenes. If you would like to come and discuss any areas of improvement, areas of good practice or any suggestions you might have about new things we could try, I will be happy to listen.
I am the line manager for some of the team members and I also deliver courses on Confidence and also Bellydance for mental health. If you would like to know more, feel free to ask me.
Sessional Worker & Counsellor
I support Tyneside Women's Health by covering sessions as needed and I provide counselling too.
Mental Health & Wellbeing Worker / Engagement Worker
As an Engagement Worker I facilitate our Welcome sessions which means I am often the first person you will meet at TWH. I will also stay in touch with you throughout your membership and offer you chances to review your involvement so you get the best out of being here.
I'm also the staff point of contact in Linked Women supporting women to progress their involvement at TWH, to publish our in-house newsletter and I enjoy flexing my own creativity to write the Link Up e-newsletter each month.
Receptionist & Administrator
I am usually the first person you will speak to either on the phone or in person when you want to access Tyneside Women's Health's services. Feel free to ask me anything and I will do my best to answer and point you in the right direction!
