“My SHS Practitioner Katy looked past my behaviour and helped me to deal with what was really wrong when other people just thought I was naughty. Without SHS, I wouldn't be in school. I wouldn't have sat my exams.”
“I feel more confident – I have the choice to say yes or no and feel comfortable and empowered. My kids are doing well in school. They see the change in Mum so they know that things are OK.”
