Parenting after Separation

It made it easier knowing that we weren’t there being judged from the other people that were there and that we weren’t the only ones that were sort of in that position. There are other people that are going through it.
My practitioner is gifted at this process and enabling a way forward
Thank you very much for your help. Nice to feel like I’m not a bad person
I personally would like to thank each one of you for your assistance over these past few months "Managing Strong Emotion, Self Esteem & Communication" (groups) the programs you provide are in my opinion awesome to those of us attempting to change.
Mental health is a negative game & can affect many people, if they don't know how to turn on the positive switch.
Thanks for being my heroes in 2017!!
I have been so lucky to have some counselling sessions at the Bathurst Centre and I'm extremely happy with the service I received. I have learnt skills and they listened to me during the time I didn't have anyone to talk to and couldn't do much to change the situation around me. The peace that I have kept in my memories from those sessions are still with me and I'm grateful for all the support that I received.
