Story One

I have been through a storm and I have come out the other side. Before Pause I only use to feel safe with a few people, but now I feel I safe with a range of people as I have less fear. I no longer blame myself for horrible things that have happened to me. I go to appointments now.   

Coping with mental health. I was struggling to attend appointments. I went to my first one with my Pause practitioner and now I can go on my own and have developed the coping strategies that can help me. I have now created a booklet that I hope will help others people.

In the future I want to be able to control my problems and face difficult situations on my own. I want to set up a group for others who have the same problems as me and help them to cope. My moto is ‘Stay strong and believe in yourself.’

“Having an Independent Visitor volunteer was the best thing that ever happened to me, and nine years later we’re still going strong. I'd be lost without you guys.”
