My practicals at Department of Social Development in Phoenix Service Office and Mashona Service Office gave me a wide and varied experience in working with different individuals and communities which gave me the ability to grow within a job, reach achievable goals and take action independently. My duties have included providing psychosocial support to clients, in a form of one-on-one counselling as well as group therapy; developing and overseeing treatment plans for clients; referring clients to and consulting with therapists and medical professionals. I have a strong desire to make a positive difference in people’s lives and I believe I would be an asset to the school given the opportunity. I feel that my greatest professional ability is to meet each of my client’s unique needs by gaining an in-depth understanding of their circumstances, problems and requirements. On a personal level I am renowned for having a positive impact on everyone I come into contact with.
