RRMC Community CPR & AED Trainer and Cardiac Care & Counselling Officer Leon Hosking.
Hello! My name is Leon Hosking and I am the new Community Trainer for the Ronnie Richards Memorial Charity.
I have a background working in social care, first aid, complementary health and counselling since 1994, with my present list of qualifications reflecting my varied working life to date:
I began working in social care in 1994 as a care assistant with a local nursing agency, and have over the years risen through the ranks so to speak, as I now hold the post of senior carer in a local care home.
I joined St. John Ambulance in 1995 with the Penzance Division, and between 2000 – 2002 was made Member in Charge of the Cadet Division.
I then left the Cadet Division to work as the Senior First Aider at Flambards for six years until 2008, during which time I was made the SWA Lay Trainer for the other AED operatives on site.
Since 1998 I have also practised in the complementary therapies as a Reiki Practioner in and around the Penzance area.
The past ten years have been taken up with pursuing my ambitions to train as a counsellor, finally gaining my BA (Hons) in Counselling Studies in July 2011. During this time I have worked for the Penhaligon Counselling Agency, SHARE (Youth Cornwall) and as a member of the counselling team at Penwith College. I have had specialist training with CRASAC (Cornwall rape and sexual abuse counselling), and in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and group work facilitation. I am also a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
I am presently studying for my PGCE (LLS) qualification at Penwith College which has allowed me to apply my teaching skills to the RRMC training programme where I am now Head of Department.
