 ‘It’s not in the genes’ 'You can change'

It isn’t just about violence, it could be verbal, intimidation, threats to yourself and others or even isolation. Maybe you feel nobody understands or cares. Do you feel worthless or thick? Have you been told it’s your fault, you’re useless? Do you feel ugly or guilty? Would you like to run away?

If any of these feelings relate to you please come and visit us. You really do matter and we are here to support and understand how things are for you as a family, couple, individual, child and young person.
