Youth Care Coordinator: Nina Calveley

Nina

 

Tell us a little about the work you do with young people at headspace?

I feel really privileged to work with young people as Youth Care Coordinator! I see new clients on their first visit to headspace where I let them know about headspace and we get to know what’s happening for them and make a plan together to find the best way we can support them.

If you had a super power what would it be?

The power to make trees grow really fast… I’m an impatient gardener.

How do you look after your headspace?

Have a good laugh with my kids and husband and friends. I also sing to music do yoga and meditation and baking and water the plants.

How would you approach a friend if you were worried about them?

I would talk to them and let them know I’m worried as they don’t seem to be themselves, Let them know I love them and I would catch up with them on the phone and give them space to talk without trying to fix anything.
