John - Discovering New Skills
“Helping children in nursery helped me to find skills and qualities I never really knew I had. I am so happy I got this opportunity because I would never have got the chance to improve myself to become who I am now.
Tim – Increasing our sense of Self-Worth
I didn't know what to say to people but have found out that anyone can feel that way and that I am not alone.
Nicky - Overcoming Social Anxiety:
I have learned that I am patient and more kind than I have been made out to be.
Andrew – Transforming Aggression:
It has been so much fun here at nursery with the little ones. I have learned so much and it has been a blast.
Gillian – Re-engaging with the World:
I’m more aware of what’s going on around me and more focused on what I’m wanting to do in the future of my career choice.
Milly – Changing Direction:
One of my teachers told me that I can’t focus for more than 10 minutes ... I think I am changing ‘cos I am enjoying doing this work.
Lisa – Finding Our Voice:
I started off shy and with all the inspiration I have become the most confident I have ever been.
Susan – Overcoming Trauma:
I finally feel like I am OK as a person. I always thought everyone else was better than me but being in this group has helped me to try different things.
