Young Women’s Therapy.
Free, confidential one-to-one therapy for young women aged 18 to 25 who had a difficult start in life.
Young Women’s Therapy service.
Our Young Women’s Therapy provision is funded by the Bloom Foundation. The service delivers free, confidential, individual arts-based therapy for young women (aged between 18 – 25) who have experienced violence, abuse, neglect or disadvantage in their early lives.
Our therapist asked former clients to describe their experience of the service here are some of their responses:
“You come here and get things off your chest. You learn that you’re not stupid or self-centered but that you really matter. It’s somewhere you can be truthful about everything.”
Who might benefit from this service.
Young women with past trauma in need of time and space for themselves and tailored support in coming to terms with past events and making changes to improve current circumstances.
There is no ‘typical client’ but some clients have experienced issues around:
- Managing feelings
- Boundaries and Self-care
- Attachment and family
- Drugs and alcohol
“There is a shift in your worries and emotions and this helps you manage and to get your self-esteem back.”
“It is a strong buffer for when I feel unable to cope.”
“I don’t believe I would have been able to complete this year of university without the help given.”
“It has helped me to overcome my fears, problems, anxiety issues and just fitting in with everyday life. It has had a very positive impact on my life.”
“It’s nice to know I have somewhere to go where I can talk and feel safe and supported.”
