Sarah was referred to The Haven and immediately she found it helpful to talk to somebody who, in her words, ‘gets it’. All the learning about how she reacts to issues and how her own behaviour and responses work, helped her understand her own anxiety as well as how to manage it better. Sarah is making significant improvements and is now leaving the house more without her Mum, doing well at college and plans to work in the care sector or with children. There is still some way to go and Sarah is not anxiety free, but she now has the coping strategies and understanding to help herself and is so much stronger because of the sessions and the support she received at the Haven.
