Hello! I’m Cecily, the cheerful and friendly micro provider behind A Positive Difference.

I’ve been committed to making a positive impact in people’s lives as a micro provider since November 2023 and it’s been an incredibly rewarding journey so far.

Passion for People – I have a genuine interest in people and the unique stories they have to tell. I believe that everyone is important. I believe in the power of community. It’s this passion and commitment  that drives me to support individuals in maintaining their independence and dignity within the comfort of their own homes.

Peace of Mind – I understand the importance of peace of mind for both individuals and their families. Having experienced the benefits first hand with my own parents, I am dedicated to providing that same sense of security and assurance to all those I work with.

Why A Positive Difference?

At A Positive Difference, I believe that small, thoughtful actions can lead to significant improvements in daily life. I strive to create an environment where individuals feel empowered, comfortable, and cared for. It’s my goal to brighten up people’s day with warmth and happiness.

I live in Coleford, Somerset with my teenage son. My background as a complementary health therapist, street theatre performer and in community arts, is anchored in connection, compassion, wellbeing and in a joy of hearing and sharing stories. I enjoy time on my allotment and I am learning the trumpet.
