Faye B 

  Skills Training & Community Wellbeing Worker  

I have been working for Mind Monmouthshire for the past 6 years.  I have past work experience with the statutory services.



  My motivation is seeing the positive changes in my clients and seeing their confidence and self-esteem in themselves and their abilities grow, as well as helping individuals gain the tools needed to cope with future challenges in life.   Curry or Mexican (though not too spicy!)

To see the changes people can make when they want to change something about themselves when they push themselves out of their comfort zone.

Steph T

  Recovery & Wellbeing Project Lead  

Over the last 20 years my work roles have mainly been in supporting women and young people who have experienced homelessness and domestic abuse.

I am passionate about equality and diversity issues, social justice and equity.


  My motivation for working with individuals who experience mental health issues is in witnessing positive personal change and giving individuals tools to assist them to manage their own mental health.   Cheese sandwiches and crisps, on top of a mountain, on a blue sunny day!



Jan H


Skills Training & Community Wellbeing Worker/ 121 Recovery


My working background is Probation, Domestic Abuse and Mental Health.  Born and raised in Hampshire, came to live in beautiful Wales December 2014.  Before joining Monmouthshire Mind in September 2017, I had worked for Newport Mind for a year. 

I enjoy the challenges and rewards working for Mind can bring. I am committed to trying, to have a positive impact on people’s wellbeing and making the unbearable a little more tolerable.  




I love most foods – love cooking and eating!!



Briony H   Young Person’s Wellbeing & Resilience Worker  

I have worked in the third sector since graduating from the University of Manchester in 2013 with a degree in Psychology. My background is mainly in mental health and brain injury – I worked for Mind Monmouthshire 2 years ago as a Community Outreach Worker and I’m very happy to be back in an exciting new role!


In my spare time I enjoy baking, running and going on trips away.



I feel strongly that if we can support young people to build resilience, talk more about their feelings and be kind to each other… we can help them to build positive and happier lives as adults!


‘Happiness is a journey, not a destination’

Caroline D
  Skills, Training and Community Wellbeing Worker  

With over 25 years’ experience of working in the third sector, supporting individuals and groups with their nutritional, physical and emotional wellbeing.

I have had the privilege of assisting the development of numerous volunteer led community-based groups, many of whom have gone from strength to strength.

In my free time I enjoy gardening, D.I.Y. and driving.

  There is no better reward than to see an individual gain the strength to overcome challenges and find happiness along life’s journey.   Roast dinner with lashings of gravy!


Lisa B   Community Wellbeing Worker   After spending many years working as an exercise referral instructor, I recently qualified as an Occupational Therapist and began working for Mind Monmouthshire at the beginning of October. I am currently studying for an MSc in Rehabilitation which often pushes me outside of my comfort zone but I am enjoying the challenge. I love gardening, riding my motorbikes, walking in the countryside and cuddles with my cat.   I believe we can all have challenges with our mental health at some point in our lives and from experience I have found having support can make all the difference. Supporting people to take control and make positive changes in their lives is incredibly rewarding.   Steak and chips covered in peppercorn sauce.
