"As the expression goes: “What a difference a day makes!” Now change that to “What a difference a YEAR makes!” As I sit here writing this and reflecting on the past twelve months I really and truly cannot believe the journey I have been on with the amazing support and guidance of NCS.


At the point of emailing NCS for help I was functioning with that brave smile upon my face but if you were to peel that smile off I was hurting inside. I knew I was loved at home but was really struggling with my confidence. I had begun to question everything I did and thought, “Why am I not asked about that?”, “Am I not good at what I do?” I was feeling as if I was not popular, not good at anything, even though I was trying my best, that everyone was better than me.  Low self-esteem, lacking confidence and anxiety was something I had struggled with since I was a child so I brought baggage with me to my first session at NCS.


On my first session with my therapist I felt that my voice was being heard and that it would continue to be heard in a safe, non-judgemental place. After a few sessions, I was already seeing an impact as I began to see and hear, to look out and around. I could see and hear what was being said to me on a daily and weekly basis. I began to see the smiles people gave me, the nods I was given. I heard the praise. I heard the kind words! I began to grow!

I have continued to grow.


Yes, it has been an eventful journey and I have hit some huge rocks on the way but it is a journey I want to stay on as I have more work to do.


Thank you NCS!"
