Social skills and competences  I am a calm and caring person and I pride myself in being a good listener. I look beyond the patients problems and medical record and try to get to know the person they can be or were before their mental health problems developed. I have experience caring for individuals and I am learning to work with families in my intern-ship role. I have personal experience caring for the elderly and family members suffering from the mental deterioration of a loved one due to old age and Alzheimer. I posses excellent observation and interpretation skills, which is essential in working with patients who either are not ready to admit their problems or are having difficulty talking about what caused their mental health problems.
Organisational skills  Caring for others requires that I am highly organised and efficient in my work and work materials. I take detailed notes during all patient sessions and later discuss those notes with the counsellor I am working with. I am often commended for taking very good, detailed notes on patients.
Technical skills and competences  Currently being trained in the use of simple medical equipment and software.
Computer skills and competences  Expert skill level with Microsoft Word, learning Excel and other Office Suite applicationsExpert internet researcher.
