Claire’s story: regaining self-confidence

Health Works for Cornwall Pluss 15 November 2021

Claire has been on several different programmes in the past. She found them useful, but they didn’t provide the help with her self-confidence that she wanted.

Claire joined Health Works for Cornwall in January 2021. She was referred from a community programme in her local area in Liskeard.

Claire has found the support from her change coach has helped her to improve her self-confidence and self-belief, to the point where for the first time in over 18 months she has now been able to return to volunteering.

Claire travels from Liskeard to Plymouth weekly. Initially this was at Barnardo’s in the city centre and has recently relocated to Barnardo’s in Saltash.

Claire commented: “Health Works for Cornwall is an extremely valuable and encouraging programme. I have been on the programme for 11 months and feel completely different to the person that I was at the beginning.”

Claire’s change coach added: “When Claire joined Health Works for Cornwall she had very low self-confidence and self-belief. With help and encouragement she’s now in a much better place mentally and is looking forward to the future.”
