I had never had counselling before and was very sceptical at the start of my counselling sessions with EACH. Gradually through these sessions and the safe space provided in these sessions, I was able to understand that I needed to give myself permission to be happy and build healthier boundaries for myself and with other people. I have now gone back into employment and am considering pursing my goal of going back to University. Counselling has helped me to look after myself better, gain improved self-awareness and esteem. I now have confidence in myself with the empowerment and freedom to follow my dreams.
