Peer Support Worker in RBKC & Westminster

Hello and Welcome! I am thrilled for this opportunity to be part of the BoB team as a peer support worker in Hammersmith, supporting individuals who have had similar battles on their journey to improving health, wellbeing and lifestyle. Substance abuse has been a part of my life from a young age. My battle with substance abuse and addiction to illegal drugs started as a teenager which led to isolation, homelessness and has brought me face to face with symptoms of mental health issues.


During my recovery I attended numerous recovery college courses and followed a recovery plan which included things such as cooking classes, hearing voices groups and prioritising physical fitness. I managed to shed four stones in just over six months and this gave me the confidence and realisation that it isn’t too late to turn your life around and re-integrate into society. I am a firm believer that there is something that works for everyone.


I also have a keen interest in alternative therapies including acupuncture, yoga and the healing properties of nature.


On my journey, I have worked a range of jobs, from managing a pizza shop on the local high street, empowering livelihoods in Kenya, driving a lorry around West London to teaching English in northern Spain.


After studying economics and finance at university in Birmingham and working in sales for two years in London . I found myself unfulfilled and still searching for something more meaningful.


The loss of my ex partner to suicide coupled with the support of a good friend, reignited a spark within me to make a positive change. That was when I decided what I should do with my life; learn more about the things in life I am truly interested in. This was when I took action and started various courses around recovery to further develop my skills - this is where I crossed paths with BoB! 


I instantly knew that a place with people like Build on Belief is a place where I could thrive and transfer my passion, skills and experience to encourage others.


Look forward to seeing you on your journey towards a brighter future.
