"Her mentoring has proven to be invaluable!"

"Lorry's approach to mentoring me was as an expectant coach. She did not just "give me the answer", she empowered me to identify where my needs were in developing my new staff orientation program and helped me to incorporate the input of my existing staff to do the actual work. She invested her time, her vast knowledge and her "cheerleading skills" with an expectation of success for me."

"Her mentoring has proven to be invaluable!"

I am a nurse working on the small remote island of St Helena, a British Overseas Territory, in the South Atlantic Ocean..In April of 2016 I started a pilot project to establish a nurse-led health service in the prison.


I have learned so much from Lorry, not least that I seem to be travelling in the right direction. We discussed specific areas of work, such as medication management, and Lorry provided sound practical advice to turn my ideas into a policy that was fit for purpose. Alongside supervision, Lorry was able to send me resources that I can adapt for use in my work. The main output of the project will be a health service manual for the prison. The sessions that I had with Lorry have given me the confidence to write this manual based on best practice but adapted for our rather unique prison. I couldn't have had a better start to my new career
