I've been a carer in the past two years. Currently I'm studying Applied Psychology and Sociology at the university. My ambition is to become a counselling psychologist and help those who suffer from minor mental health issues. I love being a carer as I have a natural instinct to care for those in need and I feel that from my education I've been able to use my knowledge in to my care work and therefore provide even further care service. I believe a great carer is someone who provides excellent care to safeguarding groups and assist and perform daily tasks to the best of their ability. I'm a very friendly person who has a lot of patience. I'm usually happy and confident in my skills but also not afraid to ask for help when it's needed. I have good communicational skills and empathy. I enjoy hobbies such as camping, photography, the gym, running, travelling and swimming. I'm mostly available on weekdays during the day and in the evenings. Please note that I have further commitments in December but will be back in January. I'd be happy to work with you so please get in touch if you're looking for a carer in the Brighton-Hove area.
