Farewell to all!

Sandy McFarland has sadly but respectfully decided to leave KASP after 18yrs of dedicated volunteering.

Sandy is one of KASP’s longest standing volunteers, who has given of her time freely since 2006. We at KASP recognise her loyalty over the years and will miss her immensely!

In the early days her role was both a counsellor volunteer and support worker, to adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse including families open to the domestic abuse team.

Sandy worked up to providing 7 individuals with a well needed service and the only counsellor volunteer to offer an outreach provision to some who were unable to attend the office. Working with people in such a dedicated sensitive and caring fashion, an enthusiastic and supportive team member.
When counselling qualifications and regulations changed, Sandy was required to undertake additional studies and she rose to the challenge, which Sandy did at her own personal cost. Nothing was going to stop her from continuing her work in KASP!
Sandy has been a worthy member of KASP’s counselling community, regularly participating in KASP group supervision, maintaining a professional standard of service to KASP clients and actively supporting new student counsellors who attend the group. She has often supported the induction training to new students over the years, sharing her wealth of knowledge and experience.
More recently Sandy had reduced her clients to 4, to care for others and the importance of her own self-care. She has given so much of herself to her role in KASP and shown the utmost compassion and selfless dedication, thank you Sandy x
All at KASP would agree that Sandy is also known for her infectious laugh, wicked sense of humour and not to forget her colourful boots and shoes, Sandy’s trade mark!
