Operations and Clinical Executive at Our Roots CIC
Lovemore’s background is in teaching. He has taught in many schools in various positions of responsibility such as Senior Master, Head of Department and Deputy Head from 1990 to 2001.
Lovemore believes that ‘humans are adaptable and can always learn and remodel themselves’. In 2001, he moved to the UK and got a job as a Postman. He was surprised by how well he adjusted to this new way of life as it was different from everything that he had known previously.
In 2003, he trained as a Mental Health Nurse. He then applied for a Counselling and Psychotherapy Course in 2008 and, in 2009, branched off and joined the second cohort of Cognitive Behaviour therapists training within the IAPT Model.
Since qualifying in 2010, Lovemore has worked all over England as a CBT Therapist, learning as much as possible in the process. He has also worked as a Clinical Supervisor. This brought me to Health Exchange and Our Roots three years ago.
