I consider myself incredibly lucky to have worked with Kate (Sequoia Support) helping her facilitating a peer support group. Watching her at work offered me the opportunity to see peer support in action, and most importantly see just how vital peer support is. Kate has the ability and skills to work with a diverse range of people. Her open mindedness allows her to really connect with those who she works with. During my time working with Kate, I witnessed her empathy and compassion in abundance. Kate was able to communicate in an open, friendly and warm way. Her incredible insight was apparent to me and always present in her work. Working alongside Kate has without doubt been one of the most influential experiences of my professional training.
