Finding Perspectives by Dorothy
Tailored support for individuals and organisations
Finding Perspectives is all about realising the benefits of different points of view and helping everyone to get the most out of their circumstances. Drawing on years of experience as a manager, advocate, coordinator and trainer, I help individuals, charities and SMEs capitalise on their circumstances and reach their potential.
Give your team purpose with a well-defined mission, clear strategy and effective processes. I work inclusively with teams, drawing on their range of perspectives to understand their needs and develop comprehensive growth strategies and management plans.
Growing a service or organisation takes more than a plan; it requires careful execution and skilled management. Utilise my experience as coordinator, manager and trainer to help manage the growth of your service.

In business we face many challenges in terms of the actual work, the types of clients we work with, the periods of change/challenge calling on us to adapt. Some prefer to bury their head in the sand hoping it will all be done with when they next come up for air.

I’m Dorothy and Finding Perspectives is my way of helping my local community to thrive. This is a brief summary of my relevant training and experience.
As a mature student, I achieved a first-class BA degree in counselling studies, developing many skills that would prove vital in my advocacy and management career.
During my degree studies, I found a passion for advocacy and began working with vulnerable citizens, helping them to represent themselves to the best of their ability in challenging situations.
After several years working as an advocate, volunteer coordinator and trainer, I took up a management position with OCAY (Older Citizens Advocacy York), leading the organisation through a challenging period of reorganisation and growth.
In my roles as advocate and manager, I have mentored clients, volunteers and staff through day-to-day life and work as well coaching them through various issues.
I have run training sessions and coaching workshops for staff and volunteers throughout my career. I also hold a Certificate in Teaching Post-16s and have taught the Certificate in Counselling Skills course at York College.
