Bianca

I am a mother of 2 amazingly unique children, both with their own disabilities and have been working as a Disability Support Worker for over 4 years. I have volunteered with an organisation who support families on the autism spectrum and assisted in a playgroup that was inclusive of all with an area of understanding for autistic children.


I am a qualified counsellor and am also trained in Emotional-CPR. I have real experience of trauma, mental health and like to be transparent and honest!
I am passionate about making a change, supporting not only the client but the whole family and spreading understanding, acceptance, validation and more. I believe for this the key words are connection and compassion.

 

I am a Marvel Superheros Fanatic. I am creative with arts and crafts and I am gently learning the art of gardening! A Bianca quirk is that I am always wearing different headbands!!

Nicole

Hi, my name is Nicole and I am so excited to join the Bright Star Support Services family. I recently graduated from Flinders University with a Master of Social Work. I also have a graduate diploma of integrated psychotherapy. I have a strong passion for advocacy and empowerment. In my past counselling experience I was blessed to work with people of all ages and backgrounds.

I took some time out of the work force to raise my two beautiful daughters who are now both in school and I am keen to get back out there and support others to achieve their goals. I have completed emotional-CPR training twice, and I find it a compassionate, complimentary approach when connecting with people.

I love music and spending time with my girls at the beach and on adventures. My favourite moments are when my kids pick our adventure and I get to experience life like a child. We are often found having dance parties, picnics and making superhero movies.

I look forward to connecting with the Bright Star Support Services community and empowering people to live their best life.

Jacob

Hi, My names Jacob, and I am super excited to work along side Bright Star Support Services and its amazing staff. I have a strong background in mental health and am super passionate about supporting and assisting people.

I am a music fan and have been playing guitar since roughly 7 years old. I can also play drums, and a little bit of piano. (Apparently, I don’t sing bad either). I enjoy camping and the beach, and being outdoors, but I also love sitting in, relaxing, and playing video games. I am a father of two boys (soon to be three) and a dog owner.

I have a life full of lived experience dealing with the ups and downs of what life can throw at you, so the knowledge I can utilise and relay in my support to clients can come from a place of self-growth and understanding of the struggle. I look forward to the opportunity to meet some awesome clients and begin this journey with Bright Stars!

I've worked in administration for a long time, but I'm so excited to be starting with an organisation that is all about the client and making a difference for them and their family.

I'm a mum to 2 and a step mum to 2, and we are so incredibly grateful for our amazing children!
