I’ve been helping people to stop smoking for 14 years now . I’m from a nursing background with 32 years experience working for the NHS.  It can be satisfying when someone quits knowing you have helped empower them to do so and in some cases change their lives completely with the benefits of extra cash, or signposting them elsewhere to address factors that may have contributed to their smoking habits.

‘I’m Danielle, and I’ve been working in and around Stop Smoking Services for the past 17 years.  I took a break to have my children but have now returned joining St.Helens Smokefree as A Stop Smoking Advisor.  I love to help people and see them achieve what they might have considered the impossible , in quitting smoking.

Knowing how hard it can be to be quit without the right help makes me want to support to people achieve their goal and focus on their own journey’.
