“The counselling has improved my confidence by making me reflect on who I am and what I have achieved, despite what happened many years ago.”

“Still a work in progress. I’m remembering just how skilled I was in my professional life and that i made a great contribution - I’d forgotten this. My intention is to start voluntary and perhaps paid employment in next year - 18 months.”

“I do feel that I am more confident about my abilities because there seems to be a more realistic approach to what i am capable of.”

“I feel better about being me. Trying to accept me as me. That part of the counselling is a good thing. I haven’t overcome everything but this has been useful. I feel on the road to recovery.”
