I believe that coffee training has given me a lot of confidence. Recently, due to worries about the future my anxiety had gotten worse, however, the thought of being able to become a barista has given me a sense of stability and calmness. The interactive and fun learning methods have improved my mood and helped with my anger management.
Currently, my goals are to be able to take orders and make the coffee myself, I hope to learn how to use an Eftpos machine and deal with cleaning to allow me to run a café by myself! What makes me happy is that this is both a hobby and a job for me, my biggest goal is to be able to work.

John is a coffee lover who lives in Sydney. John, who has mild autism, has taken a step closer to realising his dream of becoming an expert barista with the help of Eben Mission. When John’s Care Coordinator and Support Worker first met with him, they did what we usually do at Eben Mission: they listened and learned about John’s interests so they could best support him in living the life he wanted.
During the time that John has received training, John has been able to make eye contact when talking and interacting to others, he looks more confident and his expression has become brighter and softer. John’s goal is to further improve his communication with others so that he has the courage to lead in independent daily life an ultimately to love on his own.
