My name is James and a year ago I moved to Frome with my wife. She is originally from the town.
I have always been in professions that help people develop, and I love communicating with others. This is what inspired me to become a micro provider – a companion for others you need a friendly face. I am a qualified coach, part of which means that listening is recognised as an important part of providing person-centered support. I am keen to help my clients in a way that is self-empowering. This I believe allows people to develop and maintain independence where possible. In my varied careers to date I have been a professional trainer, a journalist, and a stand-up comedian! These abilities and experiences highlight my communications skills in a way that is practical and fun, yet down to earth. I delight in meeting new people and getting to know them and enjoy chatting, whatever the subject. Humour is so important to me: I love to have a laugh and joke with people – again where appropriate. But I recognise we all have challenges in life, and my goal is to bring a little bit of warmth and happiness back into people’s lives! In conclusion, I hope this bit of background helps you feel encouraged to contact me.In brief, I offer
–Companionship. A chance to meet and talk about shared interests, sport, music, culture, past history and stories, family life, what’s going on in the news, what’s going on locally.
–Shopping if needed.
–Trips out – I have access to a car and can accompany clients to visit friends and other family members, or visits to places/situations of interest. I can also offer transport and company for appointments.
–Minor jobs around the house or garden if needed.
I have a clean driving license, full liability insurance and have been DBS checked.
