I hadn’t slept properly for two years before coming to the refuge. It felt like a massive weight had lifted from my shoulders. I was finally safe.
The part I found most beneficial was when the counsellor explained to me the reasons why I am the way I am and why I act as I do, it is all part of trauma.
I don’t know how I would have gotten through the events that happened to me without this amazing service.
Since I have been coming here, I am going upwards instead of downwards.
