You seem to understand the emotions and difficulty in having to remember and talk freely about the past and how it does affect the future. You have let me speak out about sexual abuse in a safe and secure environment. We need more people and organisations like yourselves.
My life was just hell and I had completely lost my way and was drinking far too much. But you stood by me even when I thought I had really reached rock bottom. I think I’m through the woods now. The nightmare I went through is becoming history.
From the depth of despair you were there… now I am here. With heartfelt thanks.
With the help of counselling I have learned to deal with my thoughts and emotions and now realise that I am not to blame for what happened to me. What a relief to get rid of the guilt I felt.
Being referred to you is the best thing that has happened to me. I now know who I am and who I can be. My self esteem is greatly improving and continuing to develop to make me a much better and happier person.
You have helped me in so many ways. You have given me confidence that I never thought possible and I am now working for the first time.
I arrived a really angry person with reservations about counselling. I didn’t think it would help. How wrong was I? It has completely changed my life.
I cannot find the words to express my gratitude and the respect I have for you. You patiently walked part of my journey with me and helped keep me safe.
I have had a very bad time in my life and if this help had not been there for me when I needed it, I could have killed myself.
