“Counselling has had a massive impact. I’m 8 years out from leaving my ex-husband but I still have days when what happened then still dictates what I feel now. I’m estranged from my children because of what I experienced so I carry that with me. My counsellor brings me back to where I need to be. Counselling is the most valuable thing that has ever come out of my situation.
The price of your peace is worth any sacrifices you have to make when leaving a relationship. Where I am now you can’t buy what I’ve got. I’m so at peace. I haven’t got to worry about anyone. You’re not worried about who’s coming through the door or what kind of mood they’re going to be in. It’s just the best feeling.
I was sceptical it was for me, by the end of it I was a totally different person. It totally changed my life. Before I’d be in the shops always looking over my shoulder, by the end I could go with no worries or anxiety. My counsellor was so lovely and made me feel so supported.
It helped a lot. It supported me throughout a time that I needed someone to talk to while I was going through the courts. I took stress off my mind.”
