Hello! I’m Wayne Walker
How are you?
At present my career is supporting services as a qualified Freedom to Speak Up Guardian Consultant to support staff in the NHS UK Wide and in the private sector. Changing culture and improving Speaking Up, as well as supporting people in power to respond effectively.
I have been in this role since January 2016 when I changed direction in my career. Changing career is daunting at the best of times but challenges and resilience have taught me how to move forward.
Past experiences have brought me to the here and now. These experiences gained over several roles have led me to this vocation which I feel I was destined to fulfil.
The dedicated people I have met and have spoken to over that time, have driven me to become the well balanced person I am today.
Following my vocation has directed me towards a degree in Social Psychology BSc (Honours) and further self-development in Counselling and Psychology. I have set up this practice to support people from all walks of life, to be listened to and supported, with the end goal being better clarity and direction in life.
you will find details of all my services within my websites pages and everyday challenges such as the unique and specific challenge of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and its associated health issues.
Experiencing lockdown has been challenging. Issues such as loneliness or having someone to listen, away from the family unit, is neccessary to be able to accommodate the stresses and strains of lockdown life.
I am Covid-19 Psychological First Aid trained and have completed Mental Health First Aid training as tools to help with the associated health risks of Covid-19.
