Kym, from near Blackpool, came to the North East to go to university and fell in love with the area. One of  Kym’s favourite places is Saltburn Beach  – just one of six blue flag beaches in the region.

“I chose to do less than full time training after I had my little girl so that I could spend time with her. Everyone was very supportive so I’ve not had to finish my training and restart – I’ve managed to combine it all together.”

“Clinical supervisors and trainers are brilliant, they go above and beyond.”
