Alice has worked in the field of Mental Health for over 25 years. She currently works as a Mental Health Adviser at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.
Within this role Alice is the lead on all suicide prevention awareness training and is part of the Univeristys strategy group "Suicide Safer Strathclyde".
She regularly meets with students and staff who may be experiening poor mental wellbeing and has recently introduced havening within the Disability and Wellbeing service in the University. Students have particularly benefitted from this during exam periods, where anxiety levels are high. The sessions have allowed students to re-focus, feel more confident whewn entering the exam hall. By encouraging on-going self havening these students now always have the tools with them should they need to use them.
Alice also volunteers at a suicide prevention charity called Chris's House and takes the lead on all new volunteer induction training.
Alice believes that Havening is the key to individuals over-coming traumas that previously may have shadowed their entire being.
