    • I am no longer hiding from life and I have learned to say yes and no. I now do things for me!

      • the training sessions were engaging, very informative and eye opening.  The information on the statistics and range of services was very useful to know as they helped understand the scale and difficulties with sexual violence etc.
    • My time here has been so helpful to me. Having time to step back and look at some of the difficult things that have happened in my life and recognise I have strength has been so precious to me. I am so thankful for being able to access such an amazing safe haven! You have given me the opportunity to step back and breathe again. I feel like a stronger person, able to face the world and live again. I am empowered!

    • It’s made me a happier, stronger, more confident, positive person!

    • Just a quick note to say thank you for listening to me and helping me to rebuild my life. I feel happy and like I am ready to live again. Life is good. I never thought I would feel this good again. Talking has helped me through the darkness and to clear out the weeds in my life. Now my life looks sunnier and I have much to look forward to. I also have real flowers in my garden now. So it shows things can change.
