Rosalyn Magowan is the Counselling Senior Manager at the Caribbean and African Health Network (CAHN). Her role at CAHN is to coordinate, lead and develop our counselling service. Rosalyn brings to CAHN twenty years’ experience of counselling and psychotherapy, as well as being a Tutor. She is a Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapist (BACP). Rosalyn holds a BSc Honours Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Salford. She loves people and that comes across with her engagement within the various communities and staff. Her visionary perspective has enabled the counselling service to strive and gain much traction as CAHN begins to move from being local to a national service. She loves working with difference and diversity. Her achievement thus far within CAHN began with the “Black Single Mothers Project” enabling women to meet and share their issues. However, during the Pandemic, Rosalyn and her incredibly small team were able to work unto a “blank Slate” which has now provided a sense of pride in developing the counselling service to where they are presently. Outside of the office Rosalyn is committed to education, empowering others, and travelling.
