One of the RESPONSE referral partners was working with “Annie”, a lady completely lacking in confidence, unable to participate in group sessions (6 people or more). They felt that with a lot of support and confidence building, she would be an ideal candidate to help and counsel others who face the same traumatic and debilitating experiences as herself.
Working with “Annie”, they planned a learning and development plan and she agreed to attend a RESPONSE Health and Safety Level 1 day course. She was apprehensive but went along and the feedback was that she thoroughly enjoyed it, felt very safe and welcome, passed the course and volunteered to attend another course! She is now thriving and has made some life changing decisions, the main one being that she feels back in control and prepared to move forward.
