Meet Helen, our new Suicide Bereavement Support Officer

Hello,

My name is Helen, I have recently joined the great team at Harmless as a suicide bereavement support officer for the Tomorrow Project. I am currently training to be a counsellor and I hope this will help me in my supporting role. Most of my previous experience has been people facing and connecting with people is something that I find is rich and rewarding. My background is varied from sales to health and fitness, so well-being is something that is of particular interest to me. This experience has given me an understanding of the importance of self- care, both physical and mental.

I am looking forward to supporting people through the tomorrow project.

Meet Rachel, our new Suicide Bereavement Support Officer

Hi. I’m Rachel and have recently joined the Tomorrow Project team as a Suicide Bereavement Support Officer. My role will be to work with clients bereaved by suicide in Leicestershire, offering practical and emotional support. The heart of our service is the ethos that with the right support and help life can get better. I expect the role to be challenging at times, emotive but rewarding.

Prior to joining the Tomorrow Project I worked in bereavement support with a national charity and also as a volunteer counsellor with a Leicester cancer charity. I have also just completed my counselling training with a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

I see the Tomorrow Project as offering a vital support service for those bereaved by suicide who historically across Leicestershire may have had to wait for weeks or even months to access support. Expressing feelings and thoughts to those close to you or a support organisation is something that has been shown to help. Although all bereavements are different, as someone who has been bereaved by suicide I personally also have some experience of what clients are going through.

I look forward to helping to drive the support service forward in Leicestershire and ensuring that we are able to help as many clients as possible.

Meet Sofia, our new Suicide Bereavement Support Officer

Hi, my name is Sofia and I have recently joined the team as a suicide bereavement support officer, offering emotional and practical support to those bereaved by suicide. Even though I only joined the team not too long ago I have already learned so much through those that already work for harmless. Working here I can see that there is a variety of wonderful people, in different roles but who share the same passion and values for helping others and that harmless is a judgement free zone.

I have a background working as a support worker and volunteering with women’s aid, this has resulted in me working with many different people from all walks of life. My background has also shown me that I love working with people and know the importance of taking care of our mental health and of one another. In fact I wish I myself had known of these services when I lost a friend to suicide, but now I am aware and work for such a great organisation I want to spread the word and help those who need it.

One of my initial worries when first starting was that I was not good enough for this role when surrounded by so many impressive people. But then I remembered that one of my strongest beliefs is that you should love yourself and accept yourself flaws and all. I also realised that clearly others believe in me so why don’t we believe in ourselves. Something that I think many of us struggle with. Instead of comparing myself to others I should be learning from them and growing as a person, which is why I know here is a place I can really grow and flourish as a person.

Meet Lisa, our new Suicide Bereavement Support Officer

Hello, I’m Lisa and I have recently joined the Tomorrow Project as a Suicide Bereavement Support Officer. So why did I take this job?……Well, having lost both my sister and uncle to suicide, I feel I can offer a genuine understanding of the difficulties people may face both with their own grief and in supporting others.

With the numbers of deaths by suicide significantly increasing in recent years, I feel the need to expand our service is paramount. That’s why I am really looking forward to working alongside my colleagues to expand our service by setting up the Chesterfield office: to ensure we are doing everything possible to reach out and support anyone in Derbyshire who has been bereaved by suicide.

Whilst I don’t yet know everyone within the company, those I have met are extremely dedicated and helpful people who are all fun to be around. I still have lots to learn (but hopefully no more eLearning for a while!) and whilst I am still getting to grips with my new role, I am eager to develop our client list as fast as possible and make our service known to everyone.

I am sharing a picture of me with my cat ‘Spartacus’. I think he is very lucky because he has 9 lives. X

Today, our wonderful colleague and friend Val, has left her Senior Therapist role at Harmless. 

Val has been working for Harmless since 2013, but joined our organisation as a volunteer before she started her counselling role.

Over the years, Val has helped countless number of people with their recovery, and for the many who met her, life got better thanks to her valuable support.

On her last day, The Harmless team presented Val with flowers, and a memory book which contained messages from colleagues and photos from her time with us.

From everyone at Harmless and The Tomorrow Project, we wish Val all the very best in the future. She knows that she will always be part of the Harmless family!
