Cara worked in finance and financial management for 10 years, predominantly in the charitable sector. Feeling unfulfilled in her work life, she went on to become a counsellor. Bringing together her financial management skills and her new skills working with complex mental health issues, it felt like a natural progression to start up a charitable organisation.
“Sometimes people hesitate in talking about their mental health or getting help because they’re scared of what people will think. We hope Find Help NI will make people realise they’re not alone.”
Having worked in mental health with children, young people and families for many years, Pamela is aware of the frustration when it comes to finding straight talking self-help advice and local support. As a therapist and a coach in the community and voluntary sector, she’s able to devise the kind of content that provides people support when they need it most.
“If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we can’t suffer in silence. In times of uncertainty and change, prioritising our wellbeing and talking about mental health is so important.”

I am a qualified Life Coach and I've also worked as wellbeing Facilitator and Personal Development Trainer. I often found people say that they do not know where to get help. I was delighted to accept the role of Community Connector for Find Help NI as I was passionate about their ethos of helping people find the right help at the right time.
WELL BEING FACILITATOR
I've been working for Find help NI for the past year as a wellbeing facilitator, my role involves working within the local communities, in schools and youth groups. I have 10 years experience working with children and young people and I am currently studying my level 4 in counselling with the view to qualify next year. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, long walks with my dog and practicing yoga and meditation.
