Case Studies

Case Study 1

Anna experienced severe anxiety. She attended the North Motherwell Hub, received Reiki and massage, she then trained in Reiki, Swedish massage and oncology massage to work with people living with cancer and long term health conditions. In April 2015, Anna became an employee of the organisation. Being a service user, then a volunteer to being employed by the organisation has helped Anna immensely with her anxiety. She goes out more, has made new friends, has much more confidence and is actively using her skills and attributes to help others in the community.

Case Study 2

Lisa Marie has a physical disability and was referred through Occupational Therapy. She received Reiki at the Craigneuk Hub and was then trained as a Reiki therapist. In December 2014, Lisa Marie joined our board and plays a pivotal role in the development of services. Up to June 2015, she was volunteering at the Craigneuk Hub. Due to her active volunteering role, Lisa Maries confidence increased and her physical and emotional health improved and Lisa Marie moved back into employment after being out of work for many years in August 2015.

Case Study 3

Natasha has a learning disability. She attended the North Motherwell Hub and received massage treatments. She then trained as a massage therapist and now volunteers with the North Motherwell Hub. Natasha was very shy and would not speak much without her support worker. Natasha now volunteers independently without a support worker present and gives service users massage tasters each week. Her confidence is very high now and she has been speaking about setting herself up as a self-employed therapist.

Testimonials

“I started volunteering after I had attended Jim Foley hub a few times as a service user. Anna had asked me if I would like to cover the front desk and I thought, why not! I enjoyed doing this as I got to meet new people every week and liked to speak to everyone. It got me out the house and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have completed various courses as a volunteer and love every minute of it”
