Get Me Out The Four Walls are please to now be able to offer a one-to-one Peer Support service with our new Peer Support Worker, Sophie-Ann.

Sophie-Ann – Peer Support Worker

My name is Sophie-Ann and I am a mother of two young children. I have suffered with postnatal depression with both my children but unfortunately more severe with my youngest leading to hospital admissions. I’ve survived and overcome lots of trauma in life and now want to help and support others. I became very isolated and withdrawn with my PND and traumatic experiences and always felt like I needed someone to listen with a non-judgmental empathetic ear but also whilst offering support and guidance. 

Previously, I’ve worked touring in a circus, performed in many shows at the hippodrome Gt Yarmouth and theatre royal Norwich, worked in a toy shop, and as a fun star and redcoat at haven and Butlins hosting activities, events, and live shows. I’ve completed my paediatric first aid, childcare, health and social, adult mental health and children’s mental health courses.  

I have a passion and desire to help those struggling with life stress/difficulties and those experiencing mental ill health. 

There are no set expectations or pressure for you to disclose anything you do not want to or any pressure for us to refer you to other services if you are not comfortable with doing so, unless a safeguarding issue is identified.

I look forward to meeting you and working together to support you through any struggles or difficulties you may be experiencing.
