Elise Staves

Hi, I’m Elise. How does anyone know what to write for these things?! Ok, so, I like being out & about, I used to be able to surf ok-ish and dream about being better at it. I am a Newcastle United fan but don’t follow it as much as I would like to, I have always had cats, and I like watching crime series on Netflix/TV. I like meeting and talking to people. I think there is usually always something to laugh about. I used to live in Brazil in a city called Salvador. I have done a few different jobs over the years including teaching English in Brazil, working in probation with young offenders, as a mentor in a High School in London and now as an independent advocate with people in psychiatric hospital. It is via these jobs that I come to enjoy working with people and supporting them to make the changes they want.
