of our clients reported that counselling had helped them in their role as a parent/carer, and that their children had also benefited.

“I felt really unsure about counselling and suffered for years. People scared me saying I might get my kids taken away from me if I asked for help. I can’t believe what a difference it has made. I am starting a course and … I am laughing and dancing with the kids – they have their mum back.”
