Rhyana's professional bio / interests

I currently work as an Equality, DIversity and Inclusion Manager at POhWER. Previously I was an Independent Advocate supporting people within Mental Health, Social Care and Community settings. I am educated to Masters level in Clinical and Community Psychology, with over 12 years of experience in Mental Health, Youth work in Practice, Care and Support work and Early Years. The best bit - I am also the mother to a highly talented budding graphic designer. ​ ​I spend my weekends volunteering at a young women's charity called The Womanhood Academy which aims to equip young women with the practical and emotional tools for womanhood, something that is very dear to me. I am also a host of an international show, Black Mental Health Matters, which aims to raise awareness and support for global Black communities about issues that directly impact us. I am a Self Care Solutionist, helping clients to build emotional resilience who bare battling to manage with all of life's hardships through self care tips, self care tools and self help strategies. This is thorough a variety of empowerment exercises, self exploration/contemplative workshops, exploring techniques for emotional regulation, offering advice and practical support, SMART goal and action setting and so much more. I use my gifts to help others cultivate and create their own healing practices through defining their own mediums of creativity.
