"Colleen has helped with a lot of problems, has taught me to cope when I want to self harm and when I am not feeling myself. Colleen has showed me that things can change if I believe in myself". (13 year old)
How are things going? Are there any changes at home in behaviour or attitude?
"My daughter is so much brighter and calmer. She has gained confidence and once again wearing make-up! She is more talkative at home, less incidents of locking herself away. Her school grades have improved since Christmas".
Do you think the Counselling sessions are being helpful? If so why?
"Yes the sessions are working. She is able to say 'I'm upset, please leave me alone'. Her confidence levels are slowly increasing. When we started on this journey she was waking most nights and asking me to sleep with her, this has dramatically decreased in the last few weeks, to only once a week. Along with this she has gained confidence to spend time with friends outside school, before inviting friends over or asking them to do something was tramatic as she was scared they would say no".
Do you have any other comments?
"Just thank you! The sessions have had such a positive impact on my daughter, she is less anxious, slowly gaining in confidence and just knowing that she is able to talk to someone about what is troubling her is such a relief".
Have some good points in your child emerged?
"She is more relaxed and it is lovely to hear her laugh more frequently. She is more chatty and I have had much more hugs in the last 6 months".
