Meet Out Team
Support Coordinator – Esra Simsek
My name is Esra Simsek and I am passionate about the work I do with Central Bayside Community Health Services to ensure our clients receive the care and advice they need to live a better life.
Holding a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering with more than 18 years of leadership, sales and marketing experience, my career path took a turn when I began volunteering as a Disability Support Worker over five years ago. Since then, the Disability & Community service sector has become my passion, leading to my current role of NDIS Support Coordinator and Psychosocial Recovery Coach.
As a valued member of the CBCHS team, I’ve drawn on my qualifications in Mental Health and Counselling to assist clients with psychical and mental health illnesses. Working with a variety of anxiety disorders including PTSD, social anxiety, OCD, trauma, addiction, ADHD and personality disorders, I also specialise in depression, bipolar and schizophrenia support.
Delivering care in a warm, welcoming and educational environment, either at the client’s home or hospital is something I’m
extremely passionate about. I want to help my participants flourish and live an independent life.
It’s my job is to keep cheering my clients on by providing the assistance and encouragement to keep them moving forward and never give up. My favourite quote is from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward”.
When I’m not working, I enjoy connecting with my family and friends, going hiking and camping and eating out at new restaurants. When I’m feeling creative I like drawing and experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes!
