What do you do at IYC?


I have been a Volunteer Counsellor with IYC for six years. I began here as a placement whilst doing my counselling qualifications and just kept on going.


What attracted you to volunteering at IYC?


IYC is very friendly and is doing a unique job in the New forest. I also find it very satisfying to have to opportunity to see such young clients before their behaviours and thoughts become too ingrained.

My hobbies include swimming, dog walking, cycling, and learning the violin
