A message from Sofia to all key workers – especially all her colleagues at Harmless and The Tomorrow Project

As a classed key worker working in this time, I’m finding it really hard to switch off sometimes when I go home from the office.

I worry for my clients that are isolating and hoping that they’re okay without face to face sessions for the time being. Then I get a little stressed that I’m not sleeping when I should be because I’m too busy worrying about things I know I’ve done my best in handling.

And then something occurred to me the other night during one of those stressing moments…

…I’m probably not alone in this feeling, in fact I think a lot if not all my colleagues will be feeling the same.

Change is stressful, especially change that was unexpected and out of our control. But we’re all doing our best and I’m extremely lucky to be a part of a team that cares so much. When I first started my role I was told that our CEO Caroline looks closely at personality in the people she hires, and it really shows! I work with some of the most caring, big hearted, supportive and creative people. They’re always there to give you advice, reassurance, laughter and a helping hand. It’s a difficult time but I’ve watched how changes have been made to work within government guidelines and how everyone has adapted to the new ways and pushed to go above and beyond. From providing a great service, to blogging and vlogging. They’re all doing a great job!

So I wanted to write this blog to let them all know how proud I am to be apart of our teams and how amazing they all are, so if they are stressing they know they’re appreciated and that they’re doing a great job.

 

Sofia,

Suicide Bereavement Support Officer
