Counsellors - YK1 Community Liaison Counsellor
Hello there, my name is Brad Steyn and I am the “Community Liaison Counsellor” for YK1. I started this job in January 2018, but many of you may not know who I am. I thought I would give you all a quick introduction. My role is to assist administrators, teachers, guidance counsellors, support staff, students and parents in our schools where needs may arise in regards to mental health support and care. Support may involve 1-on-1 counselling, meeting with teachers to help strategize a plan for a student, meeting with a parent/s or just making a connection with a student. I am very flexible to help out in whatever way I can.
On a more personal level, I am married to Jenn, and we moved to Yellowknife two years ago. I am a homebody who enjoys reading, drinking good coffee and wine, listening to music, eating good food, watching a variety of sports, going to the gym and playing tennis. I would love to do more travelling, and one important dream I would like to accomplish is getting involved in educational trusts for girls in developing countries. Most of these girls have little opportunity to study and empower themselves, as statistics show that when we empower women of all ages, their communities, countries and indeed the world will benefit.
