Peer Worker

Anxiety was something I had experienced before as a teenager, but it became harder to manage after leaving university. I felt unsure of my direction, and I also wanted to work on better coping mechanisms to deal with stress I was experiencing.


In early 2019, I started coming along to Take Off. Through getting involved in activities and talking with others in groups, I gained a better understanding of both my anxiety and my emotional regulation. I now feel really well supported and better equipped to deal with challenges in my life.

I am so grateful to everyone at Take Off for lifting my mood, every time I’m there! I hope I can help do the same for others. Peer support is an amazing thing- talking to people with similar experiences is a great reminder that none of us are alone when we face challenges to our mental health.
