Hello my name is Kimberley Tyas. I am 25 and live in Highfields, Doncaster.
I have 8 GCSEs, including English and Maths. My highest qualification at present is Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Studies.
At the moment I am studying Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling at Doncaster College.
I also have voluntary positions within the Samaritans and Mind. At the Samaritans I am a Listening Volunteer and Leader. At Mind I am a Befriending Volunteer. Within my roles at the Samaritans I offer emotional support to callers and volunteers. The callers I support are mostly in distress and/or suicidal. I ensure that volunteers are working safely and I ensure that they do not go away from a shift emotionally unstable. At Mind I provide one to one support and help clients access the community, groups and activities. Each client has or currently suffers from a mental health issue. I am a compassionate, warm, friendly and caring person who is easy to approach.
I like meeting a different range of new people and I generally feel comfortable talking to individuals who I do not know. I can remain calm and patient during challenging and difficult situations.
I can make decisions based on the knowledge and experience that I possess. I am always seeking to learn and develop.
As a Mother to a young child I possess excellent time managing skills, punctuality and reliability. I am primarily seeking employment within the support and care sector where my skills, experience and natural personality will be beneficial.
Ideally I am seeking a role that will offer challenge as I usually work best when under pressure. Furthermore, I am seeking a role that offers growth and development. I look forward to hearing from you.
