Debi Horrocks

I trained as a psychiatric nurse at the Royal Oldham Hospital in l980 where I gained an SEN (M) qualification. I initially worked on the acute wards at the Royal Oldham Hospital and then at Blackburn Hospital where I worked with younger people who had a variety of mental illnesses, including Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia. I have spent time teaching student nurses and have completed various courses, including Psychosocial Interventions with Schizophrenia and Dementia.

I completed the conversion course to gain my RMN qualifications in l988 whilst working for Pennine Care, where I worked from l986 until 2016. I worked in a variety of roles including ward work and also in the community.

I recently retired from the NHS, my last role being as a Community Psychiatric Nurse.

I have found that since my retirement working with Tranquil TMS has been extremely rewarding as you follow the patient through their treatment from start to finish and it feels good to see an improvement in their wellbeing on a weekly basis.

Mary Lord

I am a doubly-qualified nurse who has worked in the mental health services for over 40 years now. During that time I worked in a variety of services including Adults and Older People’s Services. My roles included Ward Manager on both Adult and Older People’s wards. I spent a number of years working as Business Manager for all Speciality Mental Health Services within Central Manchester and I undertook a Masters Degree in Management for this role.

I ended my career working as a Triage and Community Mental Health Nurse in Tameside, retiring from full time employment in 2014.

Now I have found that working for Tranquil TMS has given me the opportunity to once again use my skills in working with people who are suffering with anxiety and depression. Involvement during the course of their treatment allows them to be monitored and their progress reviewed on a weekly basis. Seeing the improvement that they make is a very rewarding aspect of the job and makes it a worthwhile role.

Janette Marchbank

I am a qualified  learning disability nurse and qualified in 1989. I worked within the constraints of a hospital environment but towards the end of my working career moved into community teams supporting individuals and families.

I was a representative for the Royal College of nursing and continued to help others in times of need. In my personal life I like to rise to challenges and enjoy rock climbing indoor and outdoor when the weather is good. I am involved in raising funds for a number of charities and complete walking and cycling charities for children which takes me on travels around the world. 

I retired from my substantive full time post mid 2020 and an opportunity to continue to help others became available through TMS. I joined an established   team and have found since joining the team it has been a new learning  experience. To observe  changes in individuals from commencement of treatment to maintenance has been a positive experience.
