My name is Jayne Everard and I’m delighted to be joining the volunteer team at 1-2-1 Counselling to provided some administrative support. I live with my husband, Paul, in Stillington, near Easingwold, and we have three children in their twenties. Although only our son still lives at home, our daughters often return with their partners, so we often have a full house which is just the way we like it. We moved across the Pennines from South Manchester in 2001 and since then I have been involved with Citizens Advice, initially as a volunteer, then subsequently in various paid roles, and I still do some training for them every week. Although I don’t have a counselling background I have seen at first hand the desperate need for mental health services in York and I am very impressed with the client-focussed ethos at 1-2-1.
I look forward to meeting everyone soon.
