Mary Turner

Ward - Priory

I have lived in the same house [Lower Wyche Road] for 34 years and know the Hills and the local community very well - playing an active part in many community organisations so I know quite a few people!

Qualified social worker specialising variously in mental health, grief and loss, and trauma. Qualified psychotherapist and as such I was clinically responsible for several large bereavement services in Worcestershire - managing large teams of volunteers.  I also specialised in debriefing victims of trauma.  

Although now retired, I volunteer to facilitate groups in the community, for example on the subject of grief and climate breakdown.

My son is an ecologist who advises the EU Parliament (WWF and Birdlife International) and I am well versed in matters of ecology.

Mother, grandmother, active participant in all sorts of ways.
