Meet the Strive Yorkshire Team
Hi, I’m Tracy and a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor since 1999. Over the years I have worked in various settings providing Counselling and support to people and their families and carers with a variety of disabilities, health conditions and experiencing mental health difficulties as a result of these. I have lived experience of disability myself and also as a parent of 2 disabled children. I have experienced anxiety and depression at times as a result of this lived experience. I was keen when I moved back to Yorkshire to set up a flexible and easy to access Counselling service to put my skills and knowledge to good use to benefit the local community. I have been fortunate to meet good, enthusiastic people with the same desire to help others. Through these connections Strive Yorkshire was created and I am delighted to be leading the project work of this organisation.
Hi. I’m Paul, a nerd by day, multimedia artist by night. Chair of Strive by good fortune. I’m delighted to be on board. I run a community-focused IT company and spin plates to Olympic standard.
Strive is a brilliant initiative, and one I’m proud to be associated with.
I have been working with and for people with disabilities and long term health conditions for over 15 years. For those who often need them the most, the lack of accessible counselling services can be frustrating, disappointing and at times worrying. Strive, through its aims and ethos, helps provide exactly what is needed - meaningful, invaluable support to assist both individuals and communities.
