Over the last couple of years I have watched my child change before my eyes. What was once a happy, beautiful soul had changed into a ball of anxiety and depression. Bullying and abandonment changed my girl, and we had no idea where to turn for help.
Our journey is not that unusual it would seem. With the help of amazing counselling there has been a huge improvement, and we are putting behind us the self harm and suicide attempts. The anxiety and depression we still continue to work on.
One thing I have realised is that there are very few people out there who help teenagers and families in the way we were helped and I want to change this.
I am fundraising to help me to pay for the course. I hope that people can see the possibilities this could open up and want to support me, no matter how small the donation. I probably jumped into this financial commitment without considering everything, as I have had to pay for a lot of my daughter's therapy privately, and that has put us in a bit of debt. I really want to help these families and young people, to hopefully not have to go through what my kids and I have gone through.
