Humanist Advisor and Pastoral Carer
Miss. Kate Harrison, Humanist Advisor
I discovered I was a humanist in the 1990’s while at Brighton university, after meeting my first humanist. Prior to that, I only knew I had no religion nor belief in any god. I joined Humanists UK, learned more and trained as a celebrant. I later trained as a humanist pastoral care volunteer.
In my personal life, I was a registered nurse for thirty five years, the first twenty working in acute hospital care. Moving to Lincolnshire in 2000, I worked as a GP practice nurse and in substance misuse services until retirement in 2014.
More recently, I joined Cruse the national bereavement support charity. Originally offering face to face appointments, since COVID 19, we now offer support using Zoom or telephone, both of which work very well for most people seeking help.
I think my life and work experience has made me very open minded, supportive and pragmatic. In the role of Humanist Advisor and Pastoral Carer, I hope to be able to provide a listening ear to anyone who would like to talk about whatever is on their mind.
