I have been a Health Improvement Specialist for two and half years.
I have always worked within health improvement and the best part of my job is seeing people being supported to make changes to improve their health and wellbeing. The St Helens Wellbeing Service is a team of superheroes; every day we change someone’s life and I am so proud that I am a part of this.
Learn about yourself, do what makes you happy and surround yourself with people that contribute towards your happiness.
I’m relatively new to the role of Social Prescribing Link Worker but have been supporting the people of St Helens with their health and wellbeing for almost 14 years.
Meeting so many different people and being involved in their personal journey of improvement. It’s an amazing feeling to help empower someone to make positive changes in their lives.
Try to concentrate on your own personal qualities, skills and achievements, no matter how small. See yourself through the eyes of someone who cares about you, always care about yourself.
I have been a social prescriber for six months, but have over three and a half years supporting people within a similar health improvement role.
To know at the end of the day you have helped to make a positive change to someone’s life
We all have skills, qualities and strengths, which make us who we are. Taking the time out to look and develop these can have a great impact to overall wellbeing.
I have been a Social Prescribing Link worker for 2 years, but have over 10 years’ experience helping people identify what they want to change in their life and planning how to make the changes.
Meeting clients and helping them to plan the steps they can take to feel better..
For wellbeing, be kind to yourself and take time out for yourself and have fun.
I joined the Team on 5th October after 14 years’ experience in working with people who have suffered a stroke supporting their recovery through a person centred approach, action planning, goal setting, signposting and referring into appropriate services and regular contacts, mostly in a home and hospital based setting. I am looking forward to the new challenge and the skills that I can bring to enhance Social Prescribing to support people in the community to reach their full potential.
Woking in partnership with GPs to support them with a patient journey and the satisfaction of being able to make a difference no matter how small. Plus working with a dedicated, professional and committed team.
A journey of a thousand miles always starts with the first step.
I have been In post since October and I am enjoying the process of being a Social Prescribing Link Worker.
Being able to guide and support clients on a journey to a better way of living.
looking after yourself should be a top priority - self-care isn’t selfish.
