Meet Nicole, a guest of Soul for over 2 years who has made huge progress in her journey in a very short amount of time.
He runs our ‘Convergence of Help Taskforce’, a group that’s dedicated to supporting and expanding Souls guests’ services based on the needs of our guests. He also has written and directs our Coaching@Soul Program, a program where volunteers/staff work directly with a guest over a 12-month period to identify goals and their attached obstacles, possible solutions, agreed upon actions and reflections. On top of this he is also training to become a SMART Recovery facilitator to expand the highly practical and successful program to even more individuals. It’s needless to say we keep him busy.
John’s background is in education. He climbed the education system ladder in the UK before him and his wife (who is also a Soul volunteer) followed their kid’s footsteps in moving to Australia. They were promised sand, sea and sun and they have not been disappointed.
John shares that volunteering at Soul has given him the chance to recognize and appreciate his own life while acknowledging how fragile it can be.
