Success Story

John's Story

John has thoroughly benefited participating in this program and has learnt many things in his short time with the facilitator of the Children’s Trauma, Grief and Loss Support program. She has helped John to understand and label his emotions, whether they are negative or positive. In that understanding, he has started to learn coping skills to help him through his negative emotions. John was very excited on Tuesdays when he was able to have time with the facilitator; she made the experience fun and easy for him to understand; ensuring that John would feel comfortable with her was of the highest priority, to form a relationship that was trusting and compassionate.

It has helped me say what my emotions are, it has made me feel happy.
