Alfie’s story

Supported by Sarah, Community Team


When I first met Sarah, I was depressed and unmotivated. I was experiencing anxiety attacks and flashbacks and had a real lack of self-belief.

I’m now happier in myself and believe that I can achieve my dreams. I’ve returned to school to focus on Maths and English and have started a college course in Media, Art and Engineering. Sarah has helped me to have confidence through engaging me in activities of interest, being there so I can be open and honest about my feelings, helping me explore my thoughts and emotions, and offering strategies to manage my emotions.

Sarah supports me with school and college and encourages me to try new things.
