I came to the course feeling like I was dying inside. I felt like I had said good bye to my family and could not foresee returning home because of how bad I felt.

Now I am looking forward to seeing my children again and am enthusiastic about my future and am looking forward to enjoying lots of new experiences again, which i have not felt able to do for many years.

I feel like i have been supported to grasp my life again with a good feeling of self worth. I feel like my children can have a mum for the first time ever. All the pain that was inside me is now gone and now i can feel happy again and smiling a lot!

My anxieties are reducing and i feel like i can slow down and organise less in day to day activities. I can taste and feel life again in a very positive way.

Thank you – two very simple words that mean a lot!
