My name is Aishea Drysder, and welcome to my blog.
I am one of the targeted practitioners on the MEE Team, based here in west Cumbria. I have 20 plus years of experience supporting individuals and families in empowering themselves through building confidence and teaching skills to help overcome difficulties and situations that arise within their daily life.
At MEE we are enthusiastic about making a difference in the lives of individuals who have experienced differing forms of trauma. We provide a comprehensive non-judgmental approach to trauma recovery, with a focus on empowerment and sustainable pathway development.
Our mission is to save lives now and in the future by providing a safe and secure environment, give clear communication, and direct support to enable individuals to develop, informed choice and tools so that they can ignite change.
At MEE, we understand the gap in local provision for trauma-specific supports, we are committed to bridging that gap by offering a range of services to those who are most vulnerable across our geographical community.
Our team of highly qualified and experienced trauma informed practitioners offer a multi-agency whole systems approach towards recovery and healing, which helps alleviate pressure on our hardworking, overstretched mental health services, police, probation service, children and adult services, Health services and third sector agencies. Our aim is to reduce referral and waiting time, for clients to access stabilisation services when they are most needed.
Our bespoke, client-led, targeted services include 1 to 1 support, telephone and group support. As well as our psycho-educational courses such as Me, Myself & I, our B2B (Bump to Baby) antenatal, postnatal sessions, as well as our Hope to Recovery, and Therapeutic Journaling Course. Each service is tailored to the individual's specific needs and offers direct support, education, and practical help offering informed choice and stabilisation for all aspects of recovery.
MEE's vision is to support all individuals of West Cumbria that have experienced trauma in any form. Clients will be able to access specialist support that will enable and empower them to achieve their own sustainable recovery. As a team, we aim to reduce social isolation, loneliness, reduce child poverty, build resilience and management of post-trauma symptomatology, reduce symptoms of PTSD and provide a safe space for men, women, and LGBTQIA+.
We will also provide bespoke psycho-educational courses to promote understanding of the impact trauma has on individuals, their families, and the wider community.
We are skilled in supporting vulnerable individuals and have a strengths-based approach to building effective resources for health and well-being, with a specific focus on confidence, self-esteem, and stabilisation.
Through MEE, we seek to make significant differences in West Cumbria by providing vital trauma-specific support to those who need it. our comprehensive approach to recovery, tailored services, and multi-agency whole systems approach are crucial in helping vulnerable individuals achieve sustainable recovery.
By offering a service to clients who may not fit the eligibility criteria for other trauma-specific services, or due to barriers may struggle to engage with services. MEE is bridging the gap in local provision and making a positive impact on the community. We would appreciate your help, support, and guidance. So, if you know someone who might benefit from MEE's services or if you are interested in supporting our cause, do not hesitate to reach out.
