Victoria’s Route to Intuitive Thinking Skills

Think Pieces

By Basma Aboudihaj · January 6, 2023

My name is Victoria and I have been working for Intuitive Thinking Skills since March 2022. I have a history of working in drug services and the mental health sector. In my previous roles I was always frustrated that people never seemed to move on and stayed within the service for many years. I felt as though I was helping people to make excuses for certain behaviours and they were never encouraged to take any responsibility or challenged in any way. This made me really unsatisfied in my work as I felt there had to be a better way to support people.

An old friend of mine was familiar with ITS and had heard about a job opportunity and encouraged me to apply. I am so happy I did! While completing the Intuitive Thinking Skills courses myself everything began to make sense. The skills they teach people really do have a positive impact on your wellbeing, I use them myself every single day and wish I had learned them years ago!

It really is a great place to work, I love everything that Intuitive is about and love that the courses are peer-led. My colleagues have a wealth of knowledge and skills and come from all different walks of life which helped me to settle in straight away. My Manager Casey is fantastic. She is very supportive and puts a lot of trust in me to carry out my job which makes me feel really valued and has boosted my confidence in the work that I do.

My family also love that I am so happy in my job and it has improved so many aspects of my life. I finally feel that I am doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing and it is so rewarding.
