I love my job because I always put a smile on clients’ faces, and that makes me happy. Ensuring a client has a meaningful day makes me happy, and I always look forward to that.
My advice to clinicians is that it’s important they listen to colleagues, not to be judgmental, to have team spirit, to be culturally competent, to be compassionate, to be open-minded and to have good communication skills. Importantly, they should be able to identify strengths and weaknesses among team members and help members develop in a positive way.
